An English education can be a major stepping stone towards a successful career.

England has a world-wide reputation for the quality and range of education that is available to international students. it also offers a welcoming environment with enormous opportunities for personal development.

England is renowned for its internationally recognised qualifications and the expertise of its teaching staff. It is against this background that the International Education Association (IEA) was established to promote the area of Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch as a world-class centre for excellence in international education. The IEA is a unique partnership between the public and private sectors. It is made up of local education providers with strong and proven track records in their individual fields. The Boroughs of Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch are also actively involved through their Tourism Offices. At a local level, the IEA has taken up the challenge of the Prime Minister’s initiative to promote UK education to a world-wide audience.

The educational organisations involved in this innovative project are Bournemouth University, Arts University Bournemouth, Bournemouth and Poole College, Accredited English Language Schools, University Pathway Providers and White House Guardianships (which offers a placement service into local private and state-run high schools).

This co-operation between such a wide range of partners aims to ensure that international students receive maximum benefit from their stay in Bournemouth, Poole & Christchurch.
