Inspiring global spirits for over 70 years.
The coming together of Eurocentres and Bayswater represents a new era in international education. Our collective experience represents a powerhouse in today’s international education sector.
We’re passionate about growing communities of global thinkers and explorers, at home and abroad – whatever their story. We set up Bayswater Education because we want young people from every walk of life to get a buzz from discovering new cultures, exploring new flavours, and learning what’s out there. We think of them as global spirits, like ourselves.
Our mission to inspire and educate begins in our beautiful, modern classrooms and extends to communities and cultures across the globe. Designed for today’s young people, our network of centres offers a chance to learn valuable vocational skills, inspire life-changing experiences and teach them the value of giving back.
Our One for One initiative means that when a student signs up, we give a place to a less fortunate student. So, they’re not only improving their own life, but someone else’s too. Just a few months studying in one of the world’s most exciting cities can spark transformation on every level.
We want to make sure you have the best time possible with us. We’re here to support you, at every step of your journey.
It’s our job to meet your needs and give you what you need to succeed. Your goals are ours too.
We’re a student powered community, listening to you and celebrating your efforts and achievements.
Why we do what we do – to empower all young people to create the life they want to live.
We look beyond our borders; we embrace new cultures and are richer for it. We give access to education from the heart of London to the rest of the world. You are all welcome.
We take care of the little things at every step of your journey. From enrolment to graduation, we want you to know there’s always someone here to help.
Everything we do is geared toward student success and safety. We know that confidence is an essential tool in learning and are here to encourage that confidence. Our focus is on the good you are doing.
Your overall experience is important to us and we know fun is a large part of adventure. We aim to introduce you to like-minded people so that your friendships are our legacy.
We provide the skills to change people’s lives. For every student we teach, we will teach another from a disadvantaged background. We provide classes beyond our borders and extend our commitment to education to regions where they are most needed.
