About Activities

What activities can you add on to your course?

MLS and Bournemouth offer many activities outside of learning time. Sport plays a significant role in the local economy.


There are over 10 golf courses within a 5 mile radius of Bournemouth.  We will be pleased to arrange golf tuition or arrange a game of golf if you wish.  Fees vary for golf but a good course can be found for as little as £15.00 per round.


Poole Harbour offers one of the world’s finest locations for watersports, including windsurfing, yachting and sea fishing.

Our reception and social staff are happy to advise students on all of the above activities and more.  The area has superb sporting facilities including tennis, swimming, water-skiing, jet skiing, horse riding, golf, sailing, dry-slope skiing, bowling, football, squash and athletics.  Bournemouth has an international events and conference centre and a number of leisurecentres– all available for use by overseas students.
