Academic qualifications awarded by public or private Open Universities are equal in academic standard to qualifications issued by traditional on-campus institutions. They have the same legal value, they are well-respected, and they are highly-preferred during the COVID-19 pandemic.[3][4][5][6][7]

It is part of Euro-Mediterranean Union (UNIMED), along with other universities such ad the University of Strasbourg (France), the University of Barcelona (Spain), the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece), the University of Cyprus (Cyprus), etc.[18] As an international academic institution, Pegaso is fully accredited by ASIC UK[19] (Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities) on the grounds of its Premises, Health, Safety, Governance, Learning, Teaching and Research Activity, Immigration Regulations etc. [20][21]
