The Academy for International Science and Research (AISR), Northern Ireland’s first independent B-STEM (business and STEM) school located in the historic walled city of Derry, also known as Londonderry on the west bank of the River Foyle in the North West of Ireland. AISR is fully UK and internationally accredited and ISO 9001:2015 compliant, which gives students reassurance that our Quality standards are of a high level and that student welfare and education is our priority.
AISR has been established in response to a clear market need to address the decline in the interest, enjoyment and uptake of science, technology, engineering and maths subjects among students, particularly at school leaver age. AISR is also committed to the teaching of the broader STEM areas, including business, administration, careers, digital media and teaching and lecturing. Why? Because in the post-Brexit era, a skilled workforce in Northern Ireland has been highlighted as a major necessity in developing the local economy with performance of STEM subjects playing a vital role to the overall health and wealth of our economy.
Our new Derry-Londonderry campus is now open offering local students vocational training to the highest standards from entry level to postgraduate level 7. Knowledge and skills are reinforced by using real-life scenarios and project based learning which will provide you with diverse transferable skills.
You are offered competitive prices and flexible payment options with 0% APR instalments plans and you can even get a £100 cash back when you graduate.
