BAC Accreditation

The British Accreditation Council has provided a comprehensive quality assurance scheme for independent further and higher education in the UK since 1984. BAC accreditation is recognised the world over by students, agents and government officials as the clearest mark of educational quality in the private sector.

BAC is committed to both encouraging the highest standards of education offered by independent colleges and providing prospective students with an invaluable guide to quality in an often complex sector.

For international students, choosing a BAC-accredited college for your studies will ensure that the institution is considered to be bona fide by immigration officials. Indeed from 2009, new regulations are to come into effect which will see visas granted only to non-EU students only at accredited institutions. Academic Summer is accredited by British Accreditation Council (BAC):
