However, many overseas students choose to come to Moreton-in-Marsh for the experience of living and learning abroad, to immerse themselves in a different culture which broadens and enhances their learning opportunity, as well as for the unique facilities offered by our specialist incident ground.

Diverse training for different types of emergency responders

We are recognised as the world’s leading provider of fire and emergency services training. We deliver and ensure common and consistent standards of leadership, command and technical training to Fire and Civil Defence Authorities around the world, the whole of the UK Fire and Rescue Service, all UK emergency services, and other safety critical organisations such as oil and gas both in the UK and Worldwide.

We are globally recognised as playing the lead role in developing officers from all emergency services to be able to work together in a wide range of multi-agency scenarios. Our breadth of training is unparalleled and our quality approach and systems ensure that our training is the best in the world.

In addition to working with and supporting in country civil defences with career development and leadership, we work in association with these organisations to support their own facilities.

Meeting the needs of overseas students

We know how important it is for students attending courses from overseas to feel completely at ease and enjoy their stay. We work closely with you to ensure we fully understand your needs and expectations before detailing day-to-day running of the course.  We are adept at meeting cultural, religious and dietary requirements, including Halal, and have as flexible as possible an approach in all that we do.

Facilities available to students include the Sports Complex, Library and Information Resource Centre equipped with open access PCs designed to support Arabic users, two dedicated traditional Arabic style lounges (Majilsas) with Arabic television channels and kitchen facilities, two Masjid prayer areas containing prayer facilities and religious texts.

Situated centrally in the UK, our unique venue is easily accessible being within easy reach of major road and rail networks. We are only a five minute drive from Moreton-in-Marsh mainline station from where a frequent train service to central London is available, and are just over an hour’s drive from central Birmingham.
