TCU Foreign Awards Assessment System (FAAS). The Commission approves relevant examination regulations, determines the equivalence, and hence recognises awards given by university institutions inside and outside Tanzania. TCU has an online system specifically for evaluating foreign awards. The system is known as the Foreign Awards Assessment System (FAAS).

Tcu Foreign Awards Assessment System

A foreign award is conferred by an award body outside Tanzania. Assessment of an award is the process of verifying that the knowledge, skills, competencies, and education obtained in another country are comparable to the standard established for the Tanzanian award.

Applicants whose awards have been conferred by university institutions outside Tanzania should make an online application for their foreign awards to be assessed. The assessment process takes into account citizens and non-citizens who hold foreign awards from university institutions elsewhere in the world. TCU’s evaluation is based on structural comparison, analysis of the curricula, and assessment of learning outcomes. TCU recognises the foreign award qualifications by equating them to similar awards as per the Tanzanian University Qualifications Framework (UQF).

Under Principle 7 of the Principles and Guidelines for Evaluation of Foreign Awards and Recognition of Qualifications, 2019, any person who is dissatisfied with the decision of the Commission may appeal against the said decision within a prescribed period of time from the date of receipt of the decision.
