Student life in Bournemouth

It should come as no surprise that the Bournemouth lifestyle is lived mostly outdoors. Boasting Britain’s finest stretch of beaches and mildest climate, city residents prefer spending time on the golden sand to hanging out indoors. EF’s activities coordinators are onsite to introduce you to all Bournemouth has to offer.

Sightseeing & Culture

Life here revolves around the 11-kilometer stretch of golden sand on Bournemouth’s coast. Slip your sandals off and walk barefoot down Britain’s best stretch of beaches. Stroll along the wood-planked Bournemouth Pier, a hive of activity stretching beyond the shore. Take in the seaside view from atop the Bournemouth Eye, a tethered helium balloon floating high above the city. Marvel at the rainbow-colored Pleasure Gardens, meticulously landscaped since the Victorian period.

Sports & Outdoors

Surf the swells of Boscombe beach, enhanced by a state-of-the-art artificial surf reef. Take advantage of Bournemouth’s ideal conditions and try kite or wind surfing. Join locals for yoga sessions on the beach. Meet friends for games of beach volleyball, shoot a round of golf at Meyrick Park or play a game of tennis at Bournemouth gardens.


On the weekends, you’ll have the chance to discover the academia aura of Oxford and Cambridge, the fun-loving spirit of Dublin and Edinburgh and the cosmopolitan flair of the international capitals of London and Paris.


Live like a local. You’ll feel at home after a day at the beach – whether you’re staying with a British family or living in EF’s residence.
