Though accreditation is voluntary, we have always upheld a great standard of quality in our curriculum and infrastructure in preparation for accreditation standards. Accreditation poses several requirements in terms of schedule and program structure, besides preventing the university to offer programs in three languages. FCU opted to be a more flexible and accessible institution, making available courses specifically related to our target audience, in Portuguese, Spanish and English.
