Dissolved Company 3656298
The company Oxford International College was acquired and changed to Bircham International College with the intention of establishing a BIU operational office in the UK. This office was never started because of UK legal restrictions regarding degree programs not recognized by the UK Ministry of Education or holding a Royal Charter. According to the "Education Reform Act 1988" and the "Further and Higher Education Act 1992", Bircham International College was authorized to issue higher certificates and diplomas but not university degrees.
Bircham International University decided then that it was confusing to offer distance learning degree programs of study on global basis from offices holding legal restrictions, so the UK company was dissolved.
Bircham International University maintains links with the city of Bircham, Norfolk in the United Kingdom through its president and founder Prof. Dr. Deric Bircham, whose family settled in the area around the 12th century. More info about the personal history of the founder at:
