Accreditation is the government’s recognition of educational institutions, including the Study Program at each university. In carrying out accreditation, the Government of the Republic of Indonesia authorizes the National Accreditation Board of Higher Education (BAN-PT) as the only accreditation body. This board was formed to improve the quality of higher education in terms of the academic atmosphere, institutional management, relevance, efficiency and sustainability of higher education.

In 2018, Study Program of English, Faculty of Cultural Studies Universitas Brawijaya (FCS UB) conducted a series of accreditation processes which began with self-evaluation in PS which refers to the guidelines that have been published by BAN-PT, as well as filling the instruments of accreditation. Then, the BAN-PT Secretariat reviewed the instrument for further assessment.

On September 13-15 2018, Prof. Dr. Baso Jabu, M. Hum from the State University of Makassar and Dr. Ni Luh Nyoman Seri Malini, M.Hum. from Udayana University as the assessors of BAN-PT conducted a visitation to the Study Program of English. This visit aimed to clarify, verify, and validate the data and information submitted by the Study Program of English.
