According to this registration, both departments of the School of Foreign Languages, separately, have been found to be of top quality in terms of managing organization and processes, managing assessment methods and processes, and have been approved.

Pearson Assured, one of the oldest and most respected assessment organizations in the United Kingdom, started its operations in 1836. As one of the most important and largest educational assessment institutions in the UK, Pearson has expertise in inspection, comparison, and independent quality measurement with over a century of experience in education spread across more than 100 countries. Pearson Assured examines, certifies, guides, and, when necessary, provides training in the quality of processes in institutions according to world standards. Ultimately, it awards quality certification, signage, and flags to institutions complying with standards.

The Pearson Assured quality certification process involved reviewing all activities conducted over almost two years for the Basic English Department and Modern Languages Department under the umbrella of the School of Foreign Languages. The process included revisiting, grouping according to Pearson quality indicators, supporting with examples, filing, and presenting in the specified format. This process was concluded with the application for inspection, followed by audit and certification.
