    About life at IBTI


Where is the IBTI and what is it like?

The IBTI campus is situated on ten acres of beautiful English countryside just outside the town of Burgess Hill in West Sussex, England. Since life as an IBTI student is rather busy with lectures, private study, practical duties, meals and times of worship, our students particularly enjoy our spacious grounds where they find a calm, peaceful contrast to their full and fast schedule.


What is Burgess Hill like?

Burgess Hill is a small town with 30,000 inhabitants. In the town centre, people can find anything they need for living such as shops, banks, post office, places to eat and more. For recreation, Burgess Hill has, among other things, a nature reserve, a cinema, as well as a local theatre and a leisure centre with gym and swimming pools.


Are there any big cities nearby?

Those who prefer to have more action-filled free time do not need to worry. Burgess Hill is situated no more than 40 miles south of London and only 12 miles north of Brighton, which is the largest seaside city in the UK. Both cities are world-famous for their uniqueness, sights, history and various big attractions.
