In considering individual applicants for admission to a programme, the college will seek evidence of personal, professional and educational experiences that provide indications of ability to meet the demands of the programme. The college adheres to the principle of equality of opportunity for applicants of equal potential.
How to Apply
Before we consider your application we need to receive copies of your valid passport (photo pages and permissions) UK Visa (If applicable), copies of your previous educational certificates, a statement of why you wish to join the programme you are applying for. CV and evidence of your English ability (ILETS or equivalent)
You can email requested scanned documents to firstname.lastname@example.org (we will require to see originals during enrolment should you be offered a place)
Deadline for applying
There is no formal deadline for applications. However, once a programme with a particular start date is full, no further applications for that programme will be considered. However, subsequent start dates will be available and our admissions team will be able to advise you. To be sure of a place, you should therefore submit your application to us as far in advance of the programme start date as possible.
When we receive your application form, we will review it and seek to respond within five working days (Monday – Friday). When we contact you we may require further information and/or to arrange an interview (face-to-face or via Skype).

Applicants with a Medical Condition or Disability
Applicants with a medical condition or disability which may affect their studies are kindly asked to indicate this on the application form. A medical condition or disability does not preclude consideration for a place on a programme at the college, though wheelchair users should note that the layout of the college building unfortunately does not allow wheelchair access to most parts of the college, and that adjustments to enable wheelchair access are regrettably not feasible due to the structure of the building. More information on this can be obtained from the college if required.
LCIBS cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to your personal property while you are attending your course. Oversea students that require a visa should have appropriate accidental and medical insurance and provide proof at enrolment. Please contact the admissions office if you would like details of a suitable insurance policy.
