Read what they have to say about their time spent studying with us


I felt nervous when I first came here on my own, however, it has changed. There is happy and precious memory at school, teachers are very kind, they always give me motivation to study hard and help me if I am helpless at something. Classmates are friendly, we make friends and talk with each other even though we are not from same country.

In addition, the deepest impression is my course, it is completely different with courses in my country, but they are active and happy. I have been learning a lot of knowledge about English, life and UK. I think that I make great progress. Besides I want to say the city Bournemouth I love. There are too many beautiful landscapes which make me feel happy and comfortable. Time flies, but the precious memory will be remembered.

Jiayi Zhang, from China

I am 22 years old and I am majoring in English and English Literature in Korea. Last term, I decided to go to The Bournemouth and Poole College in England. There are several reasons why I chose this place. First of all, I love Britain’s history, culture and even their attractive accent too! While I was in Korea, I didn’t have a lot of opportunities to learn about British English when I was in school. If you are Korean and say something in a British accent, I think almost everyone would look at you because most Koreans are exposed to American English. However, it doesn’t mean that Korean people hate British accent. Actually, they love it and want to pronounce that way.

Anyway, being in the United Kingdom I am fascinated by its rich and varied history, architecture and beautiful countryside and landscapes, particularly the North part. In addition, the public transportation such as the bus and rail systems are convenient and well-developed. Above everything, I was impressed by British people’s attitude (or manner) to disabled or old people. They are polite and always think about them especially in public places.

Bournemouth is a peaceful and safe place and there is the famous Bournemouth beach! In this College, there are various choices of courses. I think this system is helping students to design and build their future. When I took my first class in here, teachers helped me to getting used to this college system and suggest extra curriculum programmes such as sport activities or seminars. Teachers are attentive and caring about students all the time. Through teachers, you can learn about study skills, rules of writing essay or IELTS as well. Also, you could meet friends from many countries and get to know about another country’s custom and culture. From class, I learned not only language but also England’s culture, literature and even street words! The College arranged some trips for a cheap price and I visited Oxford, Thorpe Park and Devon. Now I feel like I want to know more about the UK and visit here at least one more time. That is my future plan but for now, I’m trying to do my best to figure out what kind of person I really want to be in my future. Hopefully, something related to what I have learned and achieved at The Bournemouth and Poole College.

I enjoyed every single opportunity to improve my English, to learn about a new culture, to make friends and I’m sure that I will be a better tourism professional from now. This is a life-changing experience, hope that more and more people can have the same opportunity that I had!
