Lana and James Foster

Established in 2000, Bright World is one of the UK's leading Guardianship Organisations and has placed thousands of students into UK boarding schools since its foundation. Bright World operates from its Head Office in Sussex UK and has over 30 Local Coordinators across the UK.

In 2021, 2022 and again in 2023, Bright World won the Guardianship Provider category at the StudyTravel Secondary Awards. Voted for by schools and educational agents, the awards celebrate outstanding services in the International education industry.

If you are sending your son or daughter to a UK boarding school, then you will be asked by the school and the authorities to provide the name of a UK based guardian who is responsible for your child as you are not living in the UK.  Parents who do not have a friend or family member who lives in the UK often turn to the services of a guardianship organisation such as Bright World Guardianships.

Unlike many other guardianship organisations, we are fully accredited by AEGIS (Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students) to Gold standard. This means our practises and processes have been thoroughly inspected and audited by this important organisation and we can therefore guarantee that we will act in your child’s best interest at all times.

committed to safeguarding the children under our care

Bright World Buddy and a Student

Bright World Guardianships' 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. We were the first guardianship company in the UK to have received assured partnership with TravelSafe, who were part of Child-Safe International; a registered charity whose mission is to safeguard children and young people away from home. 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". We understand the importance of keeping children safe, happy and comfortable and we only choose host families we would send our own children to stay with.

here to help you with UK boarding school placements

Choosing to study abroad is a very important and life changing decision, and obtaining a British degree from UK universities will mean excellent career opportunities and job prospects. Bright World works with over 400 UK boarding schools, colleges and UK universities. We specialise in finding the right school and course for students of all ages from 5 right through to postgraduate level.

Over the years our team of education specialists has helped hundreds of international students join the British education system and go onto top UK universities to complete their education. We understand the anxieties that parents have when sending their children abroad, we know and understand the boarding school system and we have great contacts with schools making us an ideal go-between for parents.
