INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Unfortunately we are unable to accept students from outside of the EU to study on our undergraduate degrees in London. This is because we are not a Tier 4 visa sponsor. This may change in the future, so do keep up-to-date via our website: www.lcibs.co.uk

APPEALS AND COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE

If on the rare occasion an applicant experiences a problem with the admissions process they should normally first raise the matter with the Admissions Manager by emailing: admissions@lcibs.co.uk.  If an informal discussion does not resolve the situation satisfactorily, they should complete our Admissions Appeal Form.
