RCSI Bahrain has received external quality assurance from the Bahrain Education and Training Quality Authority (BQA), as well as through its links with RCSI in Dublin. The most recent institutional review by the BQA (formerly known as the QAAET) placed the University in the top category regarding its level of achievement in terms of governance, management and teaching. December 2014 brought a significant milestone, as RCSI Bahrain received accreditation from the Irish Medical Council for an initial period of five years.
In addition, the School of Medicine is included in the World Directory of Medical Schools (formerly known as the International Medical Education Directory IMED and the Avicenna Directories) and the International Association of Universities’ ‘List of Universities of the World’ (UNESCO).
RCSI Bahrain is also a member of the Association of Arab Universities, as well as being officially recognised by the governments of Jordan, Kuwait, UAE, UK, Canada, Oman and California.
