What better way to spend your time than by visiting some of the UK's most famous cities and sights while you concentrate on improving your language?


The Learning & Leisure programme includes 21 hours of lessons each week.

You will be able to follow General English and/or Exam Preparation classes at your level.

As your needs change during your time with us, you will be able to change your options, and your course will adapt to suit you.

With a total of 21 hours of contact time each week, you will still have some free time to relax and self-study.


The Learning & Leisure programme does not include any accommodation.

If you would like us to organise accommodation for you, we offer Homestay accommodation with local hosts. We strongly recommend this option as it will give you a 24/7 experience of the language and culture.

However, if you prefer to find a private alternative, it would be worth looking at our pages that cover residential accommodation, private rentals, hotels, B&Bs, and apartments.


The Learning & Leisure programme includes 1 full-day excursion each week.

One advantage of studying and living in Bournemouth is that you will be within easy reach of many of the UK's most popular tourist destinations.

Famous and historic cities such as London, Bath, and Oxford are only a couple of hours away, the beautiful English coastline is on our doorstep; the south coast of England offers something for everyone.

By joining this programme, you will have the opportunity to see some of the best of England, and to make sure that your camera is full of pictures when you return home.


The Learning & Leisure programme includes free and unlimited travel on local public transport.

While you're busy travelling, there's no doubt that you'll need to take a few buses. We take the stress out of this by including weekly travel cards.

This means that you won't need to pay for a local bus while you're in or around Bournemouth, also allowing you to enjoy the freedom of being able to go out in the evenings and at weekends.

Please note

Due to coronavirus restrictions, the maximum length of stay on this programme is currently limited to 4 weeks.
