If you operate during the summer and want to recruit international students then applying for BAC accreditation will help you.

BAC accreditation allows providers to recruit international students through the Standard Visitor Visa to study for up to six months in the UK.  There are a wide range of benefits associated with BAC accreditation, from demonstrating your quality to your stakeholders to differentiating yourself from your competitors.

While the majority of providers teaching over the summer will apply for the Short Course Provider scheme there are other schemes available that may be better suited. Our expert staff will help you through the process with guided support from initial enquiry to accreditation. Once you are accredited, BAC will provide you with a marketing support pack to assist you in promoting your organisation.

Any providers wishing to be accredited for their summer operations should be aiming to submit their applications before March.
