  • We have completed all the steps on the control panel. How long will it take for our school to appear online?

We aim to put all internationally known schools online within 2 working days. However, we may need to ask lesser-known schools to prove that the information provided is genuine and the school is officially recognised.

  • Can any school be listed online?

No. We aim to provide an unrivalled service to our website visitors, prospective students and agents, therefore it is our policy to enforce strict regulations for schools that wish to be listed on our web pages.

To qualify for listing on our search engine you must be:
- a language school or educational institution which provides language courses or certificate or diploma courses
- established for at least 2 years
- officially accredited

In addition, schools in countries which require entry visas from some overseas students must meet visa requirements. For example: in the UK, a school must be listed by the DfES; in the USA, a school must be authorised to issue I-20 documents.

  • How can we prove that our school is legitimate?

Every application is carefully examined before acceptance. Before we decide, we may require the following documents for inspection:
* Course brochures and marketing material
* References from internationally recognised agencies or other institutions you work with
* Certificate or other proof of official recognition and accreditation
* Evidence that your institution has been established for at least 2 years.
