Centre for Boarding Education Research

BSA is proud to launch the Centre for Boarding Education Research (CEBER) in conjunction with our sister association in Australia, ABSA.

CEBER brings together the best research into many different aspects of boarding.

This CEBER page includes assignments submitted for the BSA Certificate of Boarding Practice and the BSA Diploma, and also contains links to a wide variety of articles and research about all aspects of boarding, both positive and negative from throughout the world.

BSA takes no responsibility for the content of external sites, and the views expressed in the research and articles below are not necessarily the views of BSA, its member schools or officers.  In accordance with the programme requirements, exemplar work from BSA Certificate and Diploma courses is anonymised.
