Exam result league tables can be incomplete and misleading. We examine the particular strengths or weaknesses of a school with you and offer an insight into a school's personality and nuances.
We work exclusively for the child and their families, providing honest and impartial advice. We do not accept any agency fees from schools.
Our knowledge of schools is truly global. We are experts in British education but collaborate closely with advisors and other professionals in the US, Europe and Asia, enabling your choices to include the best schools in the world.
We have access to experienced tutors who can assist in the preparation of entrance examinations and guide you in what to expect for interviews and pre-tests.
We understand both Western and Asian approaches to education, having experienced first-hand the different systems of schools in Asia and the United Kingdom.
Every child is unique and the search for a school must reflect this. Preferences on academics, location, student body make-up, optimal year of entry, international recognition and branding, extra-curricular activities, are always factored in.
BESSA is the long-trusted forum for families seeking informative advice and personal introductions into the prestigious world of British education. We are based in Asia and understand deeply the educational needs and preferences of families here.
BESSA offers accessibility to admissions officers through BESSA Connect - www.connect.bessa.asia - the website with an exhibition hall of virtual school booths and a schedule of talks & webinars throughout the year. We are also known for our highly successful annual school shows, which are curated carefully to bring the “best of British” education options to Asian families. BESSA's next physical shows are in:
Bangkok - Wednesday 20th October 2021
Malaysia - Saturday 23rd October 2021
Singapore - Sunday 24th October 2021

● Learn more about the top schools in the UK and Asia offering a British education.
● Meet school admission directors and learn about the unique strengths of each school.
● Listen to experts talk about key issues in the education landscape.
● Find out how to navigate the UK school admission process.
