Bournemouth and Poole – world class centre for excellence in international education

Bournemouth and Poole are two neighbouring towns on the south coast of England. They are located in one of the UK’s prime seaside holiday areas with a wealth of natural beauty and recreational facilities. Between them they offer an impressive breadth of world class educational provision. Watch our new video about life as a student in Bournemouth & Poole. 

Many towns in England can highlight excellence in one or, perhaps, two broad areas of their educational provision. Bournemouth and Poole, however, excels in all five key areas of education:

  • The region has one of the UK’s highest concentrations of accredited English Language Schools, with 21 separate institutions recognised by the British Council
  • The area is home to one of the largest providers of Further Education in the UK (based on the number of student enrolments) – Bournemouth & Poole College
  • Bournemouth University and the Arts University College at Bournemouth boast excellent Quality Assurance reports and each maintains a global reputation for their respective course provision, their continued success in attracting students and importantly, the success of their graduates. 

The local environment is also a major contributory factor to this excellence. Both Bournemouth and Poole are thriving resort towns, enjoying a temperate climate all year round and a wealth of quality recreation, sporting and entertainment facilities. The outstanding natural beauty of England’s central south coast, combined with this wide range of social amenities, is a major attraction for prospective students and contributes a great deal to student satisfaction, creating a stimulating environment for personal and educational growth.

An English education can be a major stepping stone towards a successful career.
