The London College of International Business Studies is a small private college with its central HQ based in the South East of London, Canada Water. We offer a range of different programmes at different levels and catering for students of all ages and backgrounds from 18 years upwards.

Our Undergraduate programmes are offered on an accelerated basis meaning that a traditional three-year degree can be achieved in two years. Teaching is via a block system, meaning that students learn one module topic at a time, in five-week blocks. This system will allow LCIBS to fulfil our access and widening participation goals. This method of delivery will allow us to accept a greater choice of students due to the ability to finish and achieve a degree within two years and the flexibility of the block system. This will give a variety of different types of students from mature students to those with caring responsibilities, single parents or those with working obligations as well as those from traditional routes.

LCIBS mission is to deliver high-quality education and training that will make a proactive difference to both the individual student’s life and their wider communities and national economies.
