Bircham International University
#1
Anyone heard of Bircham International University? Where exactly are they located (admin)?

What is their reputation? Degree mill? Or accredited online university? Some of the prices seem pretty low for very specific degrees...

I found the below on their page, but I don't know if any of it is credible... https://www.bircham.net/biu-references/w...ences.html

Education Quality Assessment & Accreditation
The process of accreditation is non-governmental and represents a voluntary and self-regulation process to ensure the academic quality of educational institutions. There are no worldwide accreditation standards. Accreditation is not equivalent to legality or recognition, it is a non-governmental and voluntary quality standard. Bircham International University distance learning higher education is accredited, recognized or member of the following international bodies and meets (or has met) the education quality standards of such organizations in different countries. None of these organizations belong to the USA CHEA, the Council of Higher Education Accreditation. More info...

Technically not a degree mill (degree mills require no work, just paying for the qualification/degree) but is an unaccredited school. They are not accredited by any educational body even in their home country (Spain) and have no partnerships for conferring a degree with an accredited partner.

Not worth the money either, not based on the tuition costs I'm seeing.

Thanks. They list so many memberships and other stuff that it's hard to make sense of it.
Checking out their archaeology degree, lol, for someone...

Don't take anything with them, their courses are non transferable and not for credit, I would say it's not worth anything and a waste of money to take anything from them... Here's a previous post I did about them a little while ago: https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...-are-scams?

Their website isn't even a .edu. It's a .net. Red flag right there.
