British Study Centres BSC Brighton


English school in Brighton at 10 minutes walk to the beach and 20 to the city Centre


The Company's origins date back to the 1930s when the Cleaver family founded it.

In the early days, British Study Centres (BSC) concentrated on correspondence courses and as such was a precursor to the Open University who grew up in the 1960s. The Company overgrew, establishing offices and examination centres across the entire (then) British Empire and beyond and in the process becoming the UK's largest group of correspondence colleges.

Today, BSC specialises in the delivery of high-quality English language training to adults and young learners, teacher training courses for the UK and overseas teachers and University Pathway programmes.

British Study Centres Brighton occupies a large, beautifully-refurbished, four-storey Victorian building with a magnificent garden and terrace in a quiet tree-lined street in Hove.

Its ideal location will allow you to take advantage of all the attractions of the city centre and the beach, which is about 10 minutes away.

British Study Centres Brighton has 15 spacious classrooms, all with high windows and natural light. BSC Brighton benefits from a well-stocked study centre, and library, a large computer room with the latest in flat-screen terminals and there is Wi-Fi access throughout the building. We are also fortunate to have our beautiful glass-topped cafeteria, which gives out onto the lovely gardens and terrace.

There are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants along the seafront. Water sports & fishing trips are also available. The beach is very popular with locals and holidaymakers. In the summer, a lot of the students go to the beach to have lunch. Sometimes, the teachers take their students to the beach during classes. Next to the beach, there are lawns where you can play sport. The school often organises football matches on the lawns in the summer.
