You face a bewildering choice of education providers, so how do you know which one to pick?
Choosing where to study can be very difficult, due to the diversity and large number of options available in the UK’s independent further and higher education sector and beyond. We help by running an accreditation scheme in the UK and internationally, where institutions voluntarily submit to a rigorous inspection.
How can BAC help you choose a course?
For over a quarter of a century, the British Accreditation Council has provided trusted and recognised accreditation to enhance the standards and quality of independent further and higher education providers.
BAC is a charity where helpful efficient staff, a network of expert inspectors, and a team of experience specialist consultants work together to help independent education and training providers raise their standards and reach their potential.
