MLS Summer Vocational Language Courses

The MLS range of specialised Vocational Language Courses come from the Bournemouth Business School International (BBSI) suite of courses, following the merger of BBSI into MLS in 2016. These courses enable students to study concepts and communication skills associated with careers in their chosen field. 

Our full range of Vocational Language courses are also available for summer study, as either the standard 30-lesson (22.5 hours) per week study programme, or as a 20-lesson (15 hours) per week programme.
