A college for teen international students has launched in the UK’s southwestern city of Bristol, aiming to become pathway to top universities in Britain and around the world.

Based in the UK’s tenth largest city, Bristol International College will accept its first intake of around 50 students in September 2020.
“Bristol is a fantastic city in which to live and study”
The college will offer 2-year GCSE and 1-year IGCSE courses, along with an International Foundation Programme that will seek to prepare students to gain access to top UK and international universities.
“As a specialist college for 14- to 18-year olds, we can offer a best-of-British education experience, combined with exceptional wrap-around care for our younger students,” said co-founder and CEO John Milne.
“Places in the first year are limited to 50, which means we can offer an intimate setting with very small classes and exceptional care outside of the classroom,” he added.
Interest in the school is already high, according to Tony Evans co-founder and sales & marketing director.
“Bristol is a fantastic city in which to live and study,” he explained.
There is no better place to sample a “truly excellent English education”, he said, thanks to the city’s historical, geographical and cultural significance.
The school will be based at Torwood House in the North West of the city, with accommodation located in the fashionable Clifton Village.
The school will offer students an “exceptional all-round experience” – helping students to succeed academically by providing them with necessary support and guidance in addition to a full social program, said Philippa Mills, the college’s principal.
“I will also draw on my extensive experience in UK boarding schools to ensure that BIC’s pastoral care is second to none, making sure all of our students’ needs are met – and exceeded – whilst they are away from home.”
