Adult Summer English Courses (Age 16+)*

Our adult summer English courses are a very popular choice, as they are a great way to experience high quality English tuition combined with a fun and varied social programme! Students can enjoy and experience Bournemouth at its very best in the summer sun.

  • Available from mid-June until the end of August.
  • Course duration is between 1-12 weeks.
  • Students can start any Monday.
  • Elementary to Advanced level (CEF A1-C1).

During the high season period, our Adult students (Age 16+) can choose from either General English with 15 hours of tuition per week, or Intensive English that includes an additional 6 hours, a total of 21 hours of tuition per week.

We recommend our Adult students enrol on the Vacation General and Intensive English courses (VGC and VIC) which include an activity programme, as this will give them an opportunity to meet new people from around the world and experience varied activities in the afternoon every weekday, as well as a full day excursion to London, Oxford or Bath every Saturday. We also offer optional Sunday excursions, to other popular UK destinations like Portsmouth, Thorpe Park: Theme Park, Salisbury & Stonehenge, the Jurassic Coast, Swanage & Corfe Castle and more!

See below for the latest activity programmes and weekend excursions.

As well as the General and Intensive English courses, we also run two Cambridge Examination Courses on specific dates during the high season period, First Certificate in English (FCE) and Cambridge Advanced in English (CAE).

*We accept 15-year-olds on adult courses during low season, and sometimes we accept them on our summer/high season courses. Usually we place 15-year-olds on junior courses during the summer.

We do accept 15-year-olds on adult courses during summer when:

  • They have requested to study at the school with their parent / guardian.
  • They have started studying at the school before the summer courses have started.

I had a great visit to Southbourne yesterday. A lovely warm welcome with smiles and plenty of sunshine. The school is student friendly, welcoming and vibrant. The building looks great after the recent renovations. The team are enthusiastic and motivated. Thank you for all doing a great job.
