ASSOCIATION FOR THE EDUCATION AND GUARDIANSHIP OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
The Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students (AEGIS) is a highly-regarded national accreditation body that approves institutions and practitioners that look after international students. AEGIS members are subject to rigorous and continuous assessment and safeguarding reviews and must adhere to a strict set of criteria and policies. The AEGIS badge being designed to give comfort to prospective pupils and parents alike.
The Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students is better known by the acronym AEGIS – a reference to the Greek word for a protective shield/talisman object.
Founded in 1994, the Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students has grown to become the standard bearer for guardianship of international pupils working with schools and colleges to maintain and uplift standards in the United Kingdom. Collectively, AEGIS and its member institutions work to improve the standing of UK schools and colleges as a destination of choice for international students in an increasingly competitive global marketplace.
Today, AEGIS has several hundred members, predominantly from the independent school and sixth-form colleges sector – many of which are household names internationally. Nearly all AEGIS members offer boarding or some form of residential provision (including homestay arrangements). The organisation also works with guardianship agents and advisory services as a resource and policy developer. AEGIS members are also able to avail of a range of administrative support services, knowledge libraries, expert resources and, above-all continuous professional development training.
That British schools have remained at the top of the list for many international pupils seeking a traditional public school education with top-tier academics and cutting-edge facilities is a testament to the work of organisations like AEGIS and the member schools that the association is comprised of.
Membership varies so you should check with AEGIS or your preferred institution for the latest information about their standing. Nonetheless, the schools listed below are known to be current or recent AEGIS approved members.
