hear from customers, schools and students past and present on their experience with Bright World
Bright World's mission is to keep our students safe while they are here and to improve the quality of our service and standards as we grow. We are committed to safeguarding student welfare and undertake rigorous checks on all who work with us and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
At Bright World we have a clear Child Protection strategy and try to find ways to "do what others do but to do it better".
Bright World was founded in 2000 and has been the education guardian to over 10,000 students since our inception. We are now delighted to be helping the children of some of our original clients and supporting them through their academic careers in the UK.
We have been accredited by AEGIS, The Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students since 2006. Bright World is a gold standard member, offering guardianship at the highest standard possible in the UK. In our June 2021 re-inspection, Bright World achieved 100% in all criteria.
Experience is priceless and the results of our AEGIS Re-inspection are testament to this. We are proud of the high percentage of our customers who choose Bright World every year of their child's education in the UK. We are also proud of our close partnerships with boarding schools across the UK who recognise our programmes and recommend us to their parents as a safe pair of hands.
We want to reduce our carbon footprint at Bright World. We have stopped printing our publications and now display our literature on our Digital Information Centre. We are currently exploring more areas where we can play our small part in protecting our environment and are hoping to gain a Carbon Footprint Standard verification soon.
Our host families and drivers continue to put additional precautions in place to keep students safe during times when they are away from school. You can read more about these measures on this page.
