International and Intercultural

The BISC experience is deliberately international and intercultural, to help you develop an understanding of what it means to be part of a globalized world. You will have opportunities to travel independently within the UK, with London being within two hours of the campus, and many other historical cities and towns in the local area only a short bus ride away.

Many of the courses on offer take advantage of the BISC’s location. Academic courses and co-curricular workshops help students build intercultural competency, a key skill in today’s global world. And while the majority of our students are from Canada, 30% of our student population hold passports from other countries* and we have a number of core academic partners across the globe including Japan, China, South Korea, Australia and the USA.

The BISC is two hours south of London with train services running several times per hour, putting this global city at your fingertips. London is home to top businesses, government institutions, and non-governmental organizations, and the BISC's proximity to London is vital for supporting experiential learning which provides you with the opportunity to learn in a hands-on environment from key practitioners and officials. In doing so we help you connect classroom learning and skill development to the realities of our globalized world.

Other major cities of Great Britain are all also easily accessible from the BISC. In the past, Experiential Learning Opportunities during the Mid-Term Trips to cities such as Oxford have brought students to governmental organizations, historical sites, and cultural institutions. Cities such as these, with diverse cultures and important roles in national and international affairs, create the ideal setting for experiential, interdisciplinary learning and this site-specific learning will help you build your academic and personal confidence.
