Pastoral Care

We want your time with us to be enjoyable and productive, but we recognise that studying abroad can be a challenge and some people do miss friends, family and familiar places. We pride ourselves on always being there to offer advice and help for our students. We are here to educate you, but we will also take care of your emotional well-being.

At British School of Marketing International most of our students are aged over 18, but we also offer courses to students aged 16 and 17. All 16 and 17-year old students are required to stay with host families. These homestays will be thoroughly DBS checked to ensure they are suitable for younger students to stay there. Students under 18 will be given extra help regarding transportation to school, and will be shown where to catch public transport if required. Host families will expect students to be home by 10pm at the latest, and if a student is visiting friends at the weekend or during the week they must inform the host family of this arrangement. If students are travelling during the late evening we ask them to take a taxi back to their host family. Our welfare officer will explain more about travel and transportation during the induction at the school.

Social Programmes

The school organises various social activities for students during their stay in Bournemouth. We can organise tailor-made activities for group bookings, and this can be discussed prior to arrival at the school. We can help you organise your own social and leisure activities. Below is a list of some of the activities we offer when have a sufficient number of students.

Every Tuesday, students are invited to practice conversation on topics of interest to them and others. Students should be prepared to chat and develop the topics with their own opinions. Free of charge.

In the summer, we will arrange a picnic on the beach (weather depending). We will provide the grill and food. The event costs £5 per student. You may bring a friend from outside the school, but they will need to pay £10.

Visa Advice

We can offer advice about the visa system, but it is important that you realise it is your responsibility to obtain a Student Visitor Visa (SVV) or Extended Student Visitor Visa (ESVV). It is important that you understand that people entering the UK on a Student Visa are not allowed to bring dependants, extend their visa while in the UK, or work in any capacity, paid or unpaid, during their stay.

Popular Transportation Methods

By bus

One of the cheapest ways of getting to Bournemouth is by taking the coach: National Express has direct connections between Bournemouth, Central London (Victoria Coach Station), Heathrow and Gatwick airports. With prices starting at just £15 (if booked in advance) it is also a very economical way of getting to Bournemouth. You can buy tickets at the National Express office at the airport. For more information check National Express website Click Here Please be aware the National Express terminates at Bournemouth coach station, and students will need to make their own way to their chosen destination. We do not recommend this transfer for 16 to 17 year old students. They will need to book a transfer via the school from our authorised transfer company.

By train

With direct links to London Waterloo station, Southampton Airport and many other major towns and cities in the South of England, getting to Bournemouth via train is quite simple.
