Accreditation and School Inspections

Oxford International College is a registered examination centre for all of the British examining boards and also accepts external exam candidates. The following links will take you to the exam board home pages for downloading any subject syllabus documents, past exam papers and more: AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC

We are also a ‘Highly Trusted Sponsor’ under the Tier 4 scheme for international visa students, as granted by the UKVI. As a result of new regulation for student visas by the Home Office, all colleges with international students are required to be approved by an Educational Oversight body if they wished to continue to use the Tier 4 license process.

We are inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), an agency appointed by the UK Border Agency to carry out inspections of Private Further Education and English Language College. The ISI is approved by the Secretary of State for Education to inspect schools in line with Section 162A of the Education Act 2002. The agency reports to the Department for Education (DfE) on various aspects of its findings and, to ensure that ISI inspections meet a high-quality standard, ISI is monitored by Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills) on behalf of the DfE. ISI aims to improve the quality and effectiveness of education and care of students’ welfare. The reports are made public to allow parents, agents and associations to make a reliable choice when looking at a school or college for the first time.
