Welcome to the BBEC University Academy

The University Academy is an exciting opportunity open to all students with aspirations of entering into higher education. The Academy aims to provide a program of structured activities, workshops and trips that not only stretch and challenge, but broaden the horizons of its members. The academy also aims to provide students with the skills and personal qualities they need to enter higher education.

It can be a daunting prospect for some students, but the University Academy will work with its members and their parents to help them understand and navigate the different pathways into higher education.


Activities for the forthcoming year include:

  • Excursions to higher education institutions
  • Talks from experts and academics from professional institutions
  • Enrichment excursions
  • Interschool and in-school competitions



The academy aims to nurture those students with aspirations of entering higher education and, as such, the academy has a minimum set of entry requirements. They include an average of four stars from their previous report, a 95% attendance record, zero negative points, and three nominations from staff.
