Entry requirements

We look for passionate and committed students and encourage applications from students with a variety of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. Every application to LCIBS is considered very carefully on its individual merits.

We have two routes of entry:
  1. Academic Qualifications: Typical entry - 60 UCAS Tariff Points and an Admissions Workshop.

    Applicants are invited to an Admissions workshop, even if grades are only predicted. Here, an applicant will get the opportunity to find out about the College. We will also use these workshops to get to know our perspective students and to make sure they have chosen the course that is right for them.

    We also welcome applications from students who have studied (or are studying) the International Baccalaureate, Access to Higher Education diplomas, Higher National qualifications, BTECs, Scottish Highers, Cambridge Pre-U, Welsh Baccalaureate and equivalent non-UK qualification.

    Calculate UCAS points by visiting:
  2. Work experience: We welcome applications from students who have relevant work experience. Work experience can be used to partly or fully meet our entry criteria.

All our courses are taught in English.
