The IIS is governed by the Board of Trustees, the Board of Governors and formal committees that oversee academic and administrative matters. 

Our students participate, by invitation, in meetings of the Board of Governors and academic governance processes related to their educational experience. We seek to achieve high standards and academic rigour in all our endeavours, including research, publications, teaching, human resource development, and curriculum development. We ensure the quality, rigour and integrity of our research, publications and teaching through  Board committees, peer review processes, and various policies and procedures. 

The IIS holds a student immigration licence for the enrolment of non-EEA (European Economic Area) students as required to comply with the UK Visa and Immigration requirements set out in the Student Sponsor Guidance. 

We also have to meet requirements set by the Office for Students (OfS), the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) and the Charity Commission.
