Summit awarded accreditation by the British Accreditation Council

15 September 2016

Summit Education was recently awarded accreditation by the British Accreditation Council (BAC) for Independent Further and Higher Education as a Short Course Provider. The award came after a successful inspection, by the inspectors appointed by BAC, of Summit Education's study programmes held at the University of Oxford. 

According to the BAC website: 'The British Accreditation Council was established in 1984 to provide a comprehensive quality assurance scheme for independent further and higher education in the UK. Our accreditation is recognised the world over by students, agents and government officials as the clearest mark of educational quality in the private sector. Alongside the British Council, whose Accreditation UK scheme serves as the definitive guide to the country’s English language centres, we have overseen the inspection of private post-16 education for over 30 years.... Our accreditation is recognised by the UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI), part of the Home Office, as a qualifying requirement for institutions wishing to enrol students on Short-Term Study Visas: students from outside the EEA will only secure a UK Short-Term Study Visa if they have a genuine offer from an accredited institution'.
