The case of Horizons Universuty is different. French Ministry of Education (number 0451674A) • Paris Regional Professional Training Control Department (number 11752996775) Usually recognition by Ministry of Education be it in another country or islands is sufficient for ACBSP. I'm not familiar with ASIC so I can't comment much. From what I read on internet, they work with UK Border Patrol to prevent fake, false and bogus Student Visas to defraud international students going to study in UK and applying for Student Visa. Academic value of their accreditation is unknown to me.
