From 7 January 2013, Bournemouth Business School International (BBSI) re-launches its Extended University Foundation Diploma programmes, aimed at students who have not yet achieved a level equivalent to IELTS 5.0.
The Extended University Foundation Diploma will be available in the following fields: management, marketing, law, finance, tourism, science, mathematics and IT. For students from visa countries, the applicable visa for these programmes is the General Student Visa.
BBSI celebrated its 20th anniversary in October 2012. The school was founded in 1992 by Shane Wilkinson, Managing Director. Accredited by the British Council, it specialises in business and vocational programmes as well as English language courses for international students. BBSI ran its first course, the vocational Diploma in Management & Business Administration, in October 1992. This course (with a few changes!) is still running today, 20 years later, along with over 30 other courses.
