Bradford College’s International Centre is proud to announce it has been awarded the International Charter (AoCIC) status by the Association of Colleges (AoC). This Charter Mark is a sign of the excellence and commitment to quality brought to international work by colleges in the UK.
The AoC review took place over two days in May, and the reviewers interviewed staff from the International Centre and curriculum areas, along with international students.
The College’s international work was measured against four key elements, including its commitment to international work at a management and strategic level, the quality of its international services and provision and its inclusive approach to all its international activities.
All four commitments were achieved, with key strengths noted for the College’s international marketing, strategy and processes, equal opportunities, and its dedicated support for international learners. In addition, strengths noted included the Partnership and Development Committee, the Erasmus programme, and the opportunity for staff exchange visits and training in overseas institutions.
The May AoC International Briefing stated, “The Reviewers were particularly struck by the College's long term commitment to delivering a high quality service and resource to their international students and partners through a highly dedicated and experienced international team. The College has been successfully running international programmes for many years and this is reflected in the integrated, strategic and committed approach it takes to all aspects of it international activities.”
