BCS Educational Affiliate Member and Accredited Degree logos

BCS Educational Affiliate Member logo for promotion of BCS Accredited Degrees.

The logos

Universities and colleges with BCS Educational Affliate status are encouraged to use the ‘BCS Educational Affiliate Member’ logo on webpages and publicity material. In addition there is a BCS Accredited Degree logo for use alongside the name of all programmes of study that have been accredited by BCS.

The logos may be used on the university or college website and in the prospectus or other material promoting the accredited programme. Please note that the BCS Accredited Degree logo must only be used with a programme that currently holds accredited status, and care must be taken not to mislead potential students if, for example, accreditation is about to expire.

How to use

The logos can be downloaded from the link opposite.

Each logo is located within a zip file. Upon opening this you will be asked to read the Terms and Conditions and put a tick in a box to confirm this and then you will be asked for a password, supplied by the BCS Education Team (following the necessary checks and approval being granted).

Please note that we will only process requests from BCS Educational Affiliate Members.

Explanation of accredited status

The following wording, aimed at potential students, may be used with the logo to explain the meaning and to promote the value of accredited status.

A full CITP accredited degree entitles you to apply for professional membership of BCS and meets the evidence of breadth of knowledge in the assessment for registration as a Chartered IT Professional (CITP). A partially accredited degree provides a valuable contribution towards professional membership and evidencing breadth of knowledge. Some employers give preference to applicants who have accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
