The International Faculty has once again succeeded in receiving accreditation by the British Accreditation Council (BAC) for Independent Higher Education, thus gaining maximum accreditation with no conditions, according to the BAC Report issued end of February 2017.
The International Faculty underwent the BAC inspection in December 2016. It was carried out by a BAC Committee comprised of two inspectors and a student representative all of whom thoroughly reviewed a wide range of evidence. The criteria against which the International Faculty was evaluated include teaching and learning delivery and resources, educational provision and quality, institutional procedures, management, student welfare, premises etc. Following the BAC audit, reaccreditation was awarded to our Institution as it met BAC’s high quality criteria and requirements. As a result, the International Faculty will continue to carry BAC’s quality mark.
As stated in the BAC Report, the International Faculty satisfied all 27 standards while requirements in all six areas of the BAC examination including Governance, Strategy and Financial Management, Academic Management and Administration, Teaching, Learning and Assessment, Student Recruitment, Support, Guidance and Progression, Premises, Facilities and Learning Resources, Quality Management, Assurance and Enhancement were fully met. BAC’s maximum accreditation is valid until June 2020.
The International Faculty, CITY College, highly values, welcomes and seeks after such quality inspections by well respected accrediting bodies and organisations, as they provide a clear opportunity for the Faculty to prove not only its academic excellence but the overall quality and high standards of operation.
BAC is a UK non-profit organization, established in 1984 to act as the national accreditation body for independent and higher education. BAC conducts a thorough inspection every five years, with an interim inspection after two or three years. More about BAC.
