Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex, England

The Bader International Study Centre (BISC), located at Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex, England, represents a fusion of history and innovation. The setting may be an idyllic 15th century castle, but our focus is solely on developing students who are prepared to lead in the 21st century.

A Centre for Global Education and Innovation

BISC courses will prepare you for the realities of a global future. Networks and processes will continue to define the 21st century. It is an era where people, money, and ideas, criss-cross the planet at dazzling speeds. Our networked world demands a new kind of citizen; one who is comfortable with diversity and the clash of ideas, a theorist and a doer. Our future well-being, perhaps even our very survival, depends on people who can think--and feel--globally.

An Unparalleled Experience

Small class sizes, integrated hands-on field studies, primary research-based projects, and a diverse faculty and student population set the foundation for innovative global learning at the BISC.

Expanding your Network

While at the BISC you will be transformed into a true global citizen. The connections you make with people from across Canada and all over the world will form the foundation of your own global network.
