Education Quality Assurance


Education Quality Assurance (EQA) is a quality assurance designation. If you see that your school or institution has EQA status, this means it has met or exceeded provincial government-recognized quality assurance standards and offers you consumer protection.

Benefits of EQA

The EQA seal provides one standard provincial trademark for educational quality assurance that is recognizable worldwide. EQA:

  • Allows international students to easily see BC institutions that have met government-recognized quality assurance standards and offer consumer protection
  • Eliminates the need for learners to understand the different provincial quality assurance processes that govern each type of BC post-secondary institution
  • Helps parents, counsellors, agents and officials support students in choosing a quality post-secondary institution for their overseas studies
