From the searing beauty of the Jurassic coastline and the traditional yet vibrant charms of Weymouth’s centre and harbour to the wonderful open spaces and thriving arts culture of the nearby towns of Dorchester and Bridport – Dorset will inspire and enhance your studies. Street markets, food fairs, music and arts festivals, leisure
centres, cinemas, excellent restaurants and the many leisure opportunities available in Weymouth and Portland’s stunning Olympic waters – including swimming, sailing, kayaking and paddle boarding – all make Dorset a truly great environment in which to study.
