    Hey Guys,

    I was wondering why Ross University School of Medicine is not listed under International Association of Universities list whereas ROSS Veterinary school is listed.

    Google all world universities list and open the website and have look.

    Can anybody explain this please....

    I've never heard of International Association of Universities. Mind posting the link? Btw, it doesn't matter if Ross is listed or not as graduates of Ross University can practice in all 50 states.

    I am not able to post the link because i still do not have 20 posts BUT if you google " List of the world universities" you will find it the first link.

    Now how important this is to be listed there ?

    From what I know ALL the schools worldwide, when they eveluate your university course work, they do check if the university is listed under the IAU list which is released by the UNESCO.

    I am sure that ROSS should be listed there but it I do not know why it is not!!!!

    Anyways thanks for your reply....

    IAU, founded in 1950, is the UNESCO-based worldwide association of higher education institutions. It brings together institutions and organisations from some 150 countries for reflection and action on common concerns and collaborates with various international, regional and national bodies active in higher education. Its services are available on the priority basis to Members but also to organisations, institutions and authorities concerned with higher education, as well as to individual policy and decision-makers, specialists, administrators, teachers, researchers and students.

    The Association aims at giving expression to the obligation of universities and other higher education institutions as social institutions to promote, through teaching, research and services, the principles of freedom and justice, of human dignity and solidarity, and contributes, through international cooperation, to the development of material and moral assistance for the strengthening of higher education generally.


    excerpt from their website. sounds to me there more like a conglomerate of universities who work for common causes as opposed to any sort of governing body/accredidation type body. in terms of Ross you want your school on the WHO - World Health Organization list. If your med school is not on there, dont bother.
