Foundation & Background
M15140 (BBSI) was founded in 1992. The School provides high-quality and effective English-language, academic, business and professional training to international students. BBSI is open throughout the year and prides itself in providing a learning environment with a correct balance in emphasis between training ethos and social atmosphere. The primary aim of the School is to both deliver and enhance the UK learning experience for international students who are seeking to develop either their academic or professional knowledge in the medium of English. In their free time, students can participate in our busy social and activity programme, or involve themselves in the comprehensive selection of leisure and sporting activities available in Bournemouth both during the day and in the evenings.
BBSI training methods are functional and practical; a wide range of effective teaching methods is utilised to suit different types of learner. Interactive techniques stimulate interest, inspire motivation, increase the efficiency of the learning process and achieve the highest possible levels of retention. The School employs innovative learning methods and techniques that are designed to build confidence in individuals and achieve optimum results.
