Bournemouth, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/10/2014 -- The ETC International College was recently featured on a BBC program on the 8th of May. According to the BBC coverage, the number of foreign students attending the courses of language schools in Bournemouth has grown exponentially over the past few years. Some language schools even report an increase of 30% in the number of students interested in learning and improving their English language skills.

The growing number of overseas students interested in attending college courses in the UK comes as a surprise given the tougher visa regulations introduced in 2012. The vast majority of universities from across the country state that the stricter visa requirements have led to a considerable drop in their overseas students. With the new and stricter visa regulations introduced in 2012, reports suggest the number of overseas students attending UK universities courses has dropped by at least 10%. The number is estimated to reach 20% or more over the course of the next 5 years.

The language schools in Bournemouth, including ETC International College, report that over 50,000 students attend their courses annually. The growing number of students interested in perfecting their English language skill has determined the ETC International College to make several investments to increase the classrooms’ and training rooms’ capacities. ETC also took the decision to extend its current accommodation programs in order to ensure a comfortable and pleasurable stay for all foreign students interested in undergoing their courses.

ETC International College offers its students an optimal learning environment with modern and fully-equipped classrooms and training rooms. Students attending ETC’s English courses can enjoy free internet access throughout the facility, a modern library, various computer suites and an updated academic resource centre.
