What our partners say

'Edinburgh Business School at Heriot-Watt University launched e-assessment in March 2016 – a gradual transition to e-assessment, alongside the original pen and paper version. The MBA programme can be taken by distance learning or through a learning partner which means there are very few students on campus. This meant that we needed a test centre network which was capable of delivering e-assessment in more than 100 locations worldwide. The British Council already delivers our pen and paper exams in locations where they have a presence and they provided support and advice about how to launch our e-assessment exams successfully and professionally.

Since March 2016, we have successfully used the British Council test centre network to roll out our e-assessment project. Each centre without exception has managed the process with experience, skill, integrity and to standard. We feel the most important aspect of the relationship between Edinburgh Business School and the British Council is the realistic, open and honest approach to our partnership.'
