Before

Travelling abroad to study and live can be daunting. Our friendly team are always on hand to help you make the right choice. Just get in touch and we can advise on the best school for you, what course to take, what kind of accommodation is right for you and the best attractions and activities in each city. Many of our team have been students at British Study Centres themselves so they can give you the benefit of their first-hand experience!

As soon as you book with us you will get access to myBSC, our online student portal. You can use myBSC to start building your English skills before you even arrive with lots of interactive practice and self-study sessions available. You can also click on the schoolmates link and find other students who will be at the school at the same time as you so you can start making friends.

During

We recommend that you book a transfer with us so that you have a driver waiting for you at the airport. They will drive you to your accommodation and explain how to get to the school.

On your first day at the school you will be given a warm and friendly welcome and answer any questions you have. You will then take an English test to assess your level. After that, you will be allocated to a class, be given an induction and a guided tour through the facilities, just to make sure you start feeling at home.

We have a dedicated team to help you make the most of your free time. A range of fun social events are organised at each school, which might include social activities and excursions in your host city and locations nearby. You will be given the chance to discover and enjoy the UK on weekdays and at the weekend.

After

We offer high levels of academic excellence and after receiving your certificate at the end of your course, our team are happy to guide you and advise you which course you could take next if you want to keep improving your English.

We want you to remain part of the BSC family even after you leave the school. Once you complete your course you can become part of our global community of BSC graduates and, of course, if you ‘d like to carry on studying with us in our schools or online, we can help organise this for you.

Keep in touch with us by following us on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. Here we can keep you updated about all the latest news from the schools as well as let you know about any alumni events we may be organising in your home country. We always love to hear from former students and find out how they're getting on so feel free to contact us and let us know what you're up to and how you are using your English language skills.

Keeping up with your English

Your myBSC account is still active for 3 months after you leave so make sure you use it to keep improving your English language skills. You can use the tutorials and reports to plan your future studies and improve your grammar and vocabulary with weekly topical news lessons.

If you want to keep on using myBSC beyond that period then that's no problem, just contact us for details.
