We aim to ensure that all our students have a distinctive experience at LCIBS. We take an inclusive student-oriented approach to supporting engagement and the fulfilment of student ambitions.
We aim to put the student voice at the centre of our delivery. We strive to develop a sense of belonging and a culture of positive student citizenship amongst our student body. Our Strategic Plan includes building a learning community that enables continuous engagement which supports retention.
Fostering an environment of cultural, ethical and professional awareness is key to our ethos. We aim to produce knowledgeable and skilled graduates ready for engagement in business in both local and global markets through employment and entrepreneurship.
LCIBS empowers students to be active partners in their education. Our Student Engagement Advisors are focused on the improvement of student retention and achievement through engaging students and supporting them to be active in both their learning and their wider life at our College.
By facilitating a variety of opportunities for students to engage with, we ensure that we are drawing on the creativity and talents of our students.
Attendance: Attendance in class is essential to succeeding, it is therefore important that all students attend and engage with all their classes.
Students who attend class are more likely to achieve good grades, we, therefore, encourage our students to attend all classes, and to engage with all course materials and assessments.
For further details on attendance, please refer to the Attendance Policy
Careers and employability: Future career prospects are important, and we’re here to help our students prepare for the world of work. At LCIBS, we are dedicated to breaking down any existing barriers our students may have– and prepare them to pursue a career they love.
Our student support services are designed to provide unified and clear information, advice and guidance to allow students to make informed decisions throughout their journey. We offer a comprehensive range of information, support and specialist advice to help our students with any matter, whether it is personal, practical or academic. The team is a student’s first point of contact during their time at LCIBS.
Student Finance: Our team of specialist advisers provide advice on undergraduate funding for Home and EU students and can support with making a funding application to Student Finance England.

Health and Wellbeing
A student at LCIBS’ experience is likely to be filled with discoveries, new friends and new adventures, but there may also be times when they need help dealing with personal issues.
We provide confidential support and advice through one-to-one appointments, phone calls and email.
Good health and wellbeing are central to academic study and personal development. We aim to support our students to enjoy a healthy and balanced life and will refer students to appropriate health-care services at times of ill health.
