British Educational Institutes (BEI) were established in 1952. They were initially focusing on providing courses and diploma programmes in a wide variety of disciplines. Thus, the BEI were able to provide affordable British educational programmes. BEI started up classes to provide various programmes in English. Thus, we succeeded in preparing professional accountants and auditors to qualify for the membership of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants ACCA. Meanwhile, more and more English Training Programmes were introduced in Sudan and UK.
