Since its foundation in 1991, EAQUALS has become the foremost association of providers of language services
in more than 30 different countries. EAQUALS grants its quality label to schools and institutions that fulfill its high inspection standards. Membership is open to all institutions which provide high quality language training or is, in some other way, dedicated to the achievement of excellence in this area. In order to become an Accredited Member, language training institutions must display their complete adherence to the Charters by submitting themselves to a full and rigorous inspection, which is repeated every three years. Only institutions that fully comply with EAQUALS standards can be accredited and therefore have the right to display the 'Accredited Member' logo.
CSN is the Swedish National Board of Student Aid, a state authority which along with other various responsibilities grants students with Swedish citizenship loans and funds in order to study abroad. Due to the large sums of finances involved, naturally the Swedish government looks to spend its money wisely, making sure their students receive high-quality education. Therefore only a certain number of foreign institutions are permitted to receive students on a CSN program. Each institution must fulfill several stringent criteria in order to be considered as a school in which students can develop their studies and education. Our school has been recognised by CSN as an institution that consistently delivers high-quality, affordable education, serving as worthwhile addition to a university level course.

The fields of the training are not specified as long as there is a minimum benefit for the current workplace. Language courses have become a popular option for Bildungsurlaub as it allows employees to travel and advance their foreign language skills abroad.
