Social programme

Students can participate in their free time in our varied social and activity programme, or involve themselves in the selection of leisure and sporting activities available in Bournemouth both during the day and in the evenings.

This social programme offers students the opportunity to make new friends, practise their English and increase their knowledge and awareness of UK culture.

Assessment & Grading

BBSI employs a system of continuous assessment that we have developed as an alternative to a formal examination system, which is designed both to support study and to contribute to the motivation of students.

Assignments are set regularly to assess students’ progress and achievements.

These assignments may be in the form of written essays, reports, or case studies, progress tests, research and analysis projects, preparation and delivery of presentations, business simulations, or portfolio work.
