The Beaconhouse group has almost 308,000 fulltime students in eight countries and is possibly the largest school network of its kind in the world. Established in November 1975 as the Les Anges Montessori Academy with 19 toddlers, Beaconhouse has since grown into an international network of private schools, imparting distinctive and meaningful learning to students all the way from birth – through its partnership in Pakistan with Gymboree Play & Music – to post-graduation, through Concordia Colleges and the Beaconhouse National University.
Of these students, close to 101,000 study at the group’s flagship network, the Beaconhouse School System, in Pakistan as well as overseas, while the remaining are largely enrolled at The Educators, a parallel school network operated by the group.
The Beaconhouse of today is thus much more than just a stand-alone school. Through distinct and independent divisions across multiple destinations including the UK, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Oman, the UAE, Pakistan and Belgium, it caters to the education and training needs of a large and diverse group of individuals of varying ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, and nationalities, with its activities also extending beyond education in some countries.

An Overview of Beaconhouse International College (BIC Pakistan)
Beaconhouse International College is an initiative of Beaconhouse Group Pakistan, which is currently one of the largest education providers of the World with over 300,000 students studying in eight countries.
We are proud of the diversity of our learners and their interests, and we want to nurture these future engineers, medical professionals, artists, musicians, entrepreneurs and social workers by offering a diverse range of undergraduate programs that can help them meet their aspirations. This will be done through extensive course offerings in collaboration with some of the world’s best universities. Each campus will be fully resourced for its intended purpose, and exhaustive career counseling will ensure that students get the best guidance possible during their journey. The launch of Beaconhouse International College is another step towards diversifying the qualifications portfolio available to our learners.
Transnational Higher Education has established a strong reputation in Pakistan over the last decade, and has emerged as a preferred qualification pathway for students in the country. It allows students to get a foreign qualification without having to incur the considerable cost of travelling aboard. These programs are tremendously versatile, offering students the option of completing their entire education in Pakistan, or of going overseas to complete their final year of education.
In recent times, technology has broken down geographical boundaries, allowing ideas and knowledge to be shared around the world in a way that would have been inconceivable in the past. These changes can also be seen in academia, where we are becoming part of an academic world larger than our own institutions. Beaconhouse International College is based on the same ideology of providing borderless education to Pakistani students, thus integrating international perspectives into our institution and providing our students a global network for learning, discovery and engagement.
Message from BIC Pakistan’s Leadership
Chief Executive - Mr. Nasir Kasuri
It is my honor and privilege to be associated with the Beaconhouse International College program. For many decades now, Beaconhouse has been at the forefront of K-12 teaching and learning. We are tremendously proud of the contributions our students have made to Pakistan and the wider world. It is our hope that, through this program, we will be able to address pressing needs for trained professionals in a variety of disciplines. We intend to combine our expertise and experience with that of some of the leading educational institutions in the west. This synthesis of experience should provide students with the springboard they need to be valuable contributors to the global economy in the 21st century, and to their own country. Every program in the Beaconhouse International College will focus on practical real world experience, and will help students develop the skills and attributes required for success in their future professions. The program will begin this year, with the introduction of BTEC level 3 programs in a number of our existing campuses, and will evolve to offer HND and Undergraduate programs in our custom built campuses in 2020 (there’s lots of information about these programs on this website). This is a bold new journey for us, and we look forward to sharing more news with you as the programme develops.

International Partnerships Unit
Beaconhouse group has always been a globally-focused or, having associations with some of the world’s leading academic institutions. These associations have allowed us to be at the forefront of education research, and to ensure that our students get the benefit of the most current teaching methodologies the world has to offer.
This benefit extends beyond our student body to our teachers. The Beaconhouse Teacher training program is known to be the most comprehensive and well developed training program in the country, and has evolved over the years to encompass the needs of the 21st century economy.
Our International Partnerships Unit has now been established to further diversify these relationships, and to extend them into the undergraduate sphere. This unit is tasked with providing students more diversified opportunities at the senior school level, as well as collaborating with top academic institutions in order to fulfil global demand for quality international higher education.
Our current goal is to develop innovative transnational education (TNE) partnerships with prestigious higher education institutes around the globe. Our TNE partnerships are not limited to Learning & teaching: all areas of the college can become involved in adding to the diversity of collaborative engagement; there are no limits to what can be achieved.
