The British education system is quite rightly regarded as one of the best in the world. IBS was awarded full institutional accreditation from the British Accreditation Council.
This accreditation means that IBS met BAC's quality assurance standards and gained the independent Accreditation Committee’s approval. BAC, a trusted and internationally respected British quality assurance organisation reviewed IBS's processes and demonstrates to everyone that it is a high-quality institution.
In order to achieve BAC accreditation, the institution has had to demonstrate that it meets BAC’s rigorous standards in four inspection areas:
- Management, Staffing and Administration
- Teaching, Learning and Assessment
- Student Welfare
- Premises and Facilities
Education experts from the BAC inspectorate assessed IBS against their standards during a formal inspection visit. The Inspection team wrote a report for the independent Accreditation Committee who subsequently awarded accreditation which is valid for four years.
British education is known for its very high quality and therefore this accreditation ensures to students, parents and partners that the education provided by IBS is of the highest quality available. Some of the key things that the British brand represents are:
- High-quality processes and procedures
- An emphasis on externality (at both programme and organisational level)
- Ensuring regular reviews of provision which involve both internal and external stakeholders
- Focus on ensuring there are robust systems in place to provide support to students or participants
BAC was established by the UK’s Department of Education and the British Council in 1984 to oversee independent further and higher education in the UK. As a full member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) and the International Network for Quality Assurance Agencies in Higher Education (INQAAHE) BAC has been externally assessed on its standards and processes. BAC currently accredits more than 230 institutions across 19 countries.
