Accredited Academic Programs

The DECT Global Series - Academic Program is a set of accredited programs for those who have completed their K-12 learning path to acquire substantial certifications for their digital economy skills. Empowered by the DECT Partnership Scheme, we work closely with Universities and Higher Education institutions to launch DECT Institutes around the world, supporting our various Diploma, Higher Diploma, Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate programs spanning 40+ DECT learning areas.

Dual certification upon graduation

Dual quality assurance standards
Whether working with self-accredited partners or partnering institutions that comply with their respective national accreditation standards, Krystal Institute diligently and rigorously adheres to the quality assurance mechanisms set forth by our academic partners. In Hong Kong, we work closely with partners to structure our program designs according to requirements of the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications (HKCAAVQ). Internationally, we work with awarding bodies such as under the United Kingdom’s The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) to deploy global programs. At the same time, Krystal Institute’s internal Continuous Improvement and Review (CIR) program ensures that curriculum, instructor, and delivery standards are suitable for digital skills education, resulting in a reinforced pedagogical excellence.

Dual certification upon graduation

Compliance with national standards allows our program graduates to be awarded with accredited certifications upon completion of the Diplomas and Degrees under the Academic Program. Furthermore, the Krystal Qualification Framework, which specializes in testing the digital readiness level of our students, grants an additional method of accreditation that guarantees a learner’s level of achievement. By following the learning pathway proposed by Krystal QF, students can embark on a lifelong learning journey and continuously upgrade their skills as the world of technology evolves.

Rigorous instructor and curriculum delivery requirements

Quality assurance mechanisms designed by national awarding bodies, as well as those put in place by Krystal Institute’s CIR program, ensure that instructors and delivery of curricula are up to par with DECT standards. In terms of DECT competency, we mandate that instructors attain at least one digital readiness level above the level of teaching; we also require additional pedagogical training specific to technology education, as part of our Train-the-Trainer protocol.
