Pre-Masters / Pre-MBA programme in Bournemouth

Kaplan international College Bournemouth is your pathway to higher education in the UK! KICB has an excellent track record of preparing international students for undergraduate and postgraduate study in UK universities. The College offers small classes with individual attention, while strong links to Bournemouth University means most students have the opportunity to access the University campus facilities.

Students benefit from guaranteed progression to Bournemouth University or receive help and guidance from the University Placement Service to apply to universities in the UK.

Kaplan International College Bournemouth (KICB) offers a range of flexible Pre-MBA and Pre-Masters programs designed to give students both the English and academic skills, and the specialist knowledge needed to succeed on their chosen MBA or Masters Degree. With professional, expert university placement advisors, you will receive all the help you need to enter a university that suits your needs.

The 13 years of experience has shown that international postgraduate students frequently underestimate the challenges of a Masters degree in the UK. The ability to communicate complicated and original ideas about a highly specialised subject, in English, varies enormously from individual to individual. Professionals therefore help each individual to build their own personalised preparation program with KICB, by choosing the most relevant content from the extensive list of university-validated and professionally certified syllabuses.

Whether you have recently finished your undergraduate degree, or whether you are looking to use a postgraduate degree to add value to your existing work experience, our Pre-MBA and Pre-Masters programs will give you the confidence to meet the challenges of postgraduate education in the UK.
