MLS is an independent specialist language school founded in 1987 and now provides accredited programmes in English Language, English for Special Purposes and University Preparation. The programmes are for adult learners aged 16 plus. The College welcomes over 1,000 students per year.
MLS is one of few privately owned English Language Centres accredited to run degree level business training alongside British Council accredited language training. Many of the courses integrate content study with English Language learning – a methodology known as Content Based Language Training (CBLT). The programmes are used by students seeking to develop their English for the world of work and by those students who need preparation before progressing to University study.
The UK remains a location of excellence in education and Bournemouth is a premier English language study destination in the UK. The local university is now listed in the Top 500 Universities in the world.
MLS is situated in the heart of Bournemouth town centre and only five minutes’ walk from the sea with its seven miles of sandy beaches. The college is surrounded by cafes, restaurants and shops, and the beautiful Bournemouth Gardens are just a couple of minutes away.
This is a thriving seaside town with two universities of growing importance and an international student community. Well established as a premier holiday resort and high-tech business area, Bournemouth is in the process of major regeneration with outstanding tourist events and facilities. Whatever time of year you decide to come, Bournemouth has something to offer. Major festivals (Wheels Festival, Food and Drink Festival, Award-winning Air Festival, Arts by the Sea Festival), concerts and sports events complement the beautiful natural surroundings.
Not only does Bournemouth offer exceptional opportunities for outdoor activities and culture, it is also located within easy reach of many beauty spots. MLS organises excursions to places such as the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and The New Forest. In addition to this, there are student excursions available every weekend to the most interesting cities and sites in the UK, such as Bath, Oxford, Stonehenge and London.
