The European Continental University (ECU) wasn’t just formed but has evolved through a natural process as an organisation underpinning best of two distinct worlds – practical and hands on learning. The days of Lecture Theatres, Halls of Residence, binge drinking through the nights and the rest of the goodies have been marked for extinction by our political philanthropists ever since education became a burden to the States. Education Ministers throughout the world have dabbled with various alternatives to replace the traditional methods but none have found a perfect solution. USA, Japan and Germany have been advocating the integration of the vocational concept into theoretical learning from the outset but the rest of the world has been extremely slow to adopt the model, but the third millennium enforces the implementation of this concept in order to resolve the unemployment predicament. Even before the use of Information Technology began to grow exponentially, Professional and Vocational qualifications were recognised and actively encouraged by the United States of America’s Educational Scheme. Theory only learning has become an out-dated methodology to acquire qualifications in today’s economic world. Practical expertise is the priority of today’s learning concept.

The ECU founders although come from the orthodox educational back ground but they understood the truth of the matter for today’s business world that some young and senior traditional graduates have seen the ECU’s concept as an added value for market’s needs . They have come forward to pledge their allegiance to ECU’s vision and mission. This further reinforces the notion that, the “Professional Work Based Knowledge Degree” of ECU is a valid and very important professional award for shaping the future, whilst also rewarding the self-made entrepreneurs of today and tomorrow.As ECU founders firmly believe that, it does not giveaway their award, rather emphasise very firmly and encourages the licensed working individuals to earn their Professional Knowledge Qualification Certification, as it will bring value for their own self.

It is vital in today’s extremely volatile economic climate, most of the employers are seeking for Work Exposed applicants rather than having only Conventional Theory Based Academic Graduates, as they will not be able to contribute immensely to resolve the market need of today. This where ECU Graduates can fill the gap to satisfy the employers immediate needs for the Third Millennium which will make a difference in the business world of today.In today’s current market place, we have many matured working adults with very high level of hands on experience, but do not hold a valid Professional Certification to assure the employers their potential value. This demand is being fulfilled by ECU’s Professional Knowledge Qualification.The Executive Governor General Prof. Ralph Thomas consulted with a number of fresh graduates from Orthodox Universities, who cannot find suitable jobs in the current economic climate. This confirms to him that, their accomplishment of traditional academic degree qualification does not meet the current demand for employer’s requirement. This demonstrates that an ECU’s professional knowledge qualification can be very valuable for today’s economic climate and shows that, potential employers give their fullest support for ECU’s vision, mission, and professional quality assessment and verification policy standards. As every candidate has to go through the Viva Examination which gives the e candidates to answer the questions in speech rather than a three hours written examination and it avoids plagiarism.The ECU Founders make a plea to all licensed working individuals who do not have professional endorsement for their lifelong contribution to the economic world to come and join hands with the ECU in order to get them recognized through gaining credits with a worthy Professional Work Based Knowledge Qualification that Licensed Work Experienced Individual Deserve Today.


ECU@s Board of Governors and Trustees has sanction their Independent Assessor and Verifier, who is also part of the Trustees Board UK-Commission for Consistent Learning (UK-CCL) to be the International Administrative and Management of Operation. This task permits the UK-CCL fully authority over the entire operation of ECU internationally. This information has been informed to the Secretary of State of Delaware with the authentication number 3914155 can be verified. ECU’s incorporation is as a non-domicile private non-profit university with the power on their own right confer appropriate Professional Knowledge Degree Qualifications. The word university is derived from the Latin universitas magistrorum et scholarium, roughly meaning “community of teachers and scholars”. Awarding authority arrives from the Constitution of Memorandum of Article of the incorporation of the institutions and it various form universities to universities’ aim and objectives.

The ECU degree qualifications are Non-Traditional; Non- Class Room facilitated American – European Professional and Vocational Work Based Degree Qualifications. ECU’s qualifications are based upon the person’s Knowledge via Learning & Experience. The ECU qualifications are Practical and Worked Oriented hands on awards. To obtain an ECU Professional Knowledge Degree Qualification, there is no time frame, but depends on each applicant’s knowledge and experience. It is a flexible but quality bench marked qualification by UK-CCL Professional Quality Management Standards PQMS 5001:2005. The University has adopted a range of quality assurance procedures designed to ensure that its practices meet high standards and that the University’s distinctive vision is sustained. To this effect ECU’s Executive Governor General Governing Body has given the full authority and responsibilities of Assessment, Examination and Verification to UK-Commission for Consistent Learning (UK-CCL).

UK-CCL operates to the International Standardization Organization (ISO) which is the only quality assurance system recognized by intergovernmental agreement between 148 different countries, and is based on the principles of stakeholder satisfaction and continual improvement through quality management systems. Many universities around the world have implemented the internationally recognized ISO 9001:2000 standard, and the ISO encourages institutions to adopt the standards in both self-certification and external audit processes. UK-CCL has this approval from the ISO with the Standard and Guideline of BS-EN-9001:2008 with certification number GB-14390.ECU awards are for life experience recognition and endorsement for hands on learning.


The second millennium visionary of professional qualifications Prof. Ralph Thomas believes that accreditation is not the clarification, but it can be a dilemma for many people. It has to be understood that the university is legitimately incorporated with the aim and objectives in their memorandum of article, as its constitutional practice of Professional Quality Management Standards (PQMS) is very important. If you have the PQMS in place, the external accreditation is not important. The accreditation is to confirm the quality of the qualification. How to confirm the quality of the qualification relies upon the facilitation, assessment and verification methodology that a university adheres to. This is why the United States of America did not make the accreditation legally compulsory for Non-Campus and Non-Domicile Universities, which are incorporated in USA.

The reason why people seek to know the accreditation is to find out the professional quality of the qualifications that being offered. If the university’s governing board adhere & implemented Professional Quality Management Standards (PQMS) to all their awards as their Independent Assessor and Verifier UK-CCL and the ECU qualifications which earns the UK Professional Bodies acceptance to Highest Memberships. As the qualifications are conferred to Licensed Work Experienced Mature Individuals, the accreditation does not play any importance part as it is not a Traditional Academic qualifications.

The reason that ECU does not seek for accreditation due to the fact of the immense cost and unfortunately this cost has to be passed onto the applicants. One leading educational entrepreneur quotes that, the cost of regional accreditation in the United States is around 10 million dollars and takes approximately 10 years, with a fifty percent chance of approval.The costs and time that traditional accreditation bodies take in accrediting an institution does not resonate with this age of technology and information. ECU being Non-Campus professional education brings a world of ease and flexibility to working individuals around the globe. Everyone has to take into consideration some underlying facts about Non Campus Professional Work Based Education that gives the opportunity in uplifting to a professional image or career progress, as Non-Campus Universities do not have a traditional campus or classroom environment. You can learn from anywhere you want, using latest Information Technology facilities through Internet facilities which also enables conduct one to one assessment, examinations and verifications from any part of the world. This option has motivated a large number of working professionals and organizations to embrace non-traditional methods to improve their career prospects. Recently, for example, Wal-Mart announced online education worth 1.44 Million dollars for its employees. ECU’s accreditation comes from employers, business organisations and from the individuals who have completed their learning.
