Accreditation UK is a quality assurance scheme for schools, colleges, and universities which offer courses in English as a Foreign Language (EFL). The scheme gives an assurance of quality to international students who are taking or are planning to take an English language course in the UK.

Choosing a reputable English language centre

When you are choosing a course, the top priority is to make sure the English language centre has been inspected and accredited by the UK government and education bodies.

To obtain and maintain its  British Council accreditation, Portsmouth English Language School  must comply with strict regulations relating to school premises and facilities, teacher qualifications, teaching quality, administration and welfare. Portsmouth English Language School is regularly visited by British Council inspectors.
