We want to increase the number of students who enter their final year at partnership universities with a strong foundation in their academic language and professional knowledge suitable for the ever changing digital economy.
Our College has 5 classrooms. We have a maximum of 16 students per class. We also have a computer room for students to study quietly. In the computer room, students can work on assignments, complete homework and improve their knowledge and skills to support their independent learning. At BSMI we encourage students to become active independent learners through setting learners’ objectives during their studies.
BSMI is in the centre of Bournemouth. It is close to a blue flag beach and famous gardens. The shops are also 5 minutes’ walk from the school. There are many things to do both in the day and in the evening for all ages.
Bournemouth is a peaceful but vibrant town and welcomes many people from many countries who come from all over the world. BSMI chose Bournemouth as a home to many international students for this reason. We now look forward to welcoming students to continue their journey to success with BSMI.

Safeguarding Mission Statement
BSMI is committed to keeping children and under 18s safe in all areas of college life, both in the college, at their homestay or at one of the college’s outside activities.
The college has a clear and strict safeguarding policy which makes sure that all students, especially under 18s, are looked after at all levels, physically, sexually, mentally, socially, and emotionally while they are studying at BSMI.
All management, staff and homestay families know about safeguarding to make sure that no under 18s or any student, suffer any physical, sexual, mental, social, emotional abuse or neglect while studying at BSMI.
We have a Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) – who checks all safeguarding in the college including staff and homestay training, DBS checks, safeguarding induction sessions, regular meetings with under 18s as well as meeting with local safeguarding agencies often and when necessary.
All staff and teachers get a new DBS Certificate every year and homestays provide a DBS certificate every 3 years before being allowed to work with or have our students.
BSMI always check the welfare and safety of its students and deal with any problems as soon as possible sending students to the correct department, if necessary.
Once a week, the safeguarding leader will meet with under 18s as a group to check that everything is OK and to discuss any problems they may be having. If needed, students may also have extra 1:1 meetings with the safeguarding leader.
Any problems about the safety of students are immediately dealt with, and if needed, safety specialists (for example Dorset NEXUS and/or MASH) are contacted.
