International Students Visit The South Coast

International at Itchen

Our International students have been exploring the South Coast of the UK over the last few weeks, visiting the Isle of Wight and the New Forest on Tuesday 20 and Thursday 22 June.

The sun was shining as they took a ferry over to the Isle of Wight, where they visited Alum Bay Beach and the Needles. They had the chance to relax on the beach, take a ride on the famous chairlift over the cliffs and explore the surrounding countryside.

Back on the mainland, our students took a short drive from the college to the New Forest, a large national park of unspoiled woodland that has history dating back to 1079 - King Henry VIII even hunted there! The students had a fantastic day out in the sun, trekking through the beautiful environment and getting up close to some of the New Forest ponies, who roam wild in the forest. The day finished with a traditional English cream tea at a New Forest tearooms, where the students enjoyed trying scones with jam, cream and of course, a cup of tea.

We welcome students from across the world at Itchen Sixth Form College and enjoy taking them on enrichment trips all over the UK, giving them an unforgettable experience where they can gain qualifications, learn a new language and make friends for life.
