Forty enthusiastic Italian students say they will be taking home fantastic memories of Bournemouth after a year experiencing A-Levels at Bournemouth and Poole College.
The students say they were mightly impressed by the quality of the teaching at the college as they experienced a year of life at a typical English college.
They studied a range of A-Level topics including Chemistry, Physics and Biology. … and Italian!
Student Simone Banno, 17 said: “The teaching staff were so approachable and friendly. In Italy there is a greater formality in the student-teacher relationship but in Bournemouth it is more relaxed. We also found the practical work and the laboratories better than in my homeland.”
The group are from the South Tyrol area of northern Italy.
“Of course being close to the beach was a new experience for us and made our year here really memorable.” Said Simone.
Most of the students will go on to University in Italy.
