some facts and figures

facts and figures

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.

COVID-safe host families and drivers

  • We continue to welcome our students back after a prolonged period of lockdown, we have produced a guide for Bright World team members. This offers advice on how to best support students who may be anxious about returning to the classroom. Our Bright World Buddies will be arranging welcome back meetings for all Bright World students so they can discuss and help with any worries. We are here to help and will listen.
