The full name is BERLIN CENTER FOR EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE but we prefer to call it just b-cee, pronounced bee-cee, because we like it to make things simple, fast, efficient and a bit cute.
Sevil & Till, the founders
The BERLIN CENTER FOR EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE, b-cee, is an institution founded by Sevil Akin-Erciyas, who has an extensive international experience as a teacher and as an educational consultant and Till Rienaecker, who genuinely started the company in 2008 to help German high school students to prepare for their examinations and language tests. At b-cee, we have both a great deal of experience and insights into the German high school and university system, and comprehensive know-how in international education affairs, test preparations, admission processes, undergraduate & postgraduate degrees and career prospects.
We help high school students and undergraduates to find their way and achieve their goals in the worldwide education system.
