Kings College Bournemouth

The Braidley Road campus is the main teaching and administration centre.

The Braidley Road campus is the main teaching and administration centre. It consists of two impressive buildings, located in an affluent residential area and surrounded by gardens with lawns and patios.

Bournemouth has the relaxed and friendly feel of a beach resort, but as a thriving university city you find it has plenty for its large student population. It enjoys a great location, with miles of sandy beaches and easy access to the beautiful New Forest national park.

Eating out: There are hundreds of restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs in Bournemouth. You can eat out cheaply or can go for a more expensive meal if you feel like it! Food from Asia, China, India, Italy, France, England and many more countries is all widely available.


  • Learn to sail, windsurf, surf or kite-surf: Bournemouth and Poole offer lots of water-sports academies where you can have a go at these high adrenaline sports. Full tuition, equipment and wet-suits are provided. Ask at Reception for further information.
  • Mountain biking in the New Forest: Catch a train to the New Forest and rent a bike! The New Forest is now a National Park with forest, heathland, pretty streams and lots of quaint villages, thatched cottages, tea-houses and gift shops. The New Forest is famous for its wild ponies but you may also see deer and other wildlife.
  • Why not pack a picnic, catch the train from Bournemouth to Brockenhurst and then hire a mountain bike at the station to explore the hidden gems of the New Forest!


Apart from the famous beach, there is so much to do in and around Bournemouth.

At Kings we value our students above all else. We recognise the immense contribution they make, collectively and individually, towards ensuring our learning communities are rich, dynamic and purposeful.

With decades of experience in the unique needs of international students, we are dedicated to educating and mentoring them in ways which recognise their individual ambitions, and which will make a real difference to their available range of skills, experiences and future opportunities.

We aim to define a ’student-centred' approach at every level.

It starts with the manner in which we attract, counsel and support our prospective students; it’s also defined by the way in which we educate, mentor and support them during their time with us; and it continues through the personal relationships we often maintain with our students long after they have left us to continue their success elsewhere.

In practical terms, this requires that we focus on every element of the student experience - including pre-arrival information, academic progress, English language development, cultural adjustment, personal welfare and support, university guidance, extracurricular opportunities and accommodation provision.

In short, we are committed to ensuring that the total student experience is a happy, fulfilling and enriching one.That way it will also be a successful one.
