Studying with Us: International Students guide

Studying from outside the UK or EU

LSBC (London School of Business & Computing) enables individuals from all corners of the globe to pursue their studies. Thousands of students from over 10 countries are already benefiting from our offerings, whether through Distance Learning or at our campus in the UK. Through Distance Learning, you can obtain a UK Degree without the need to relocate from your homeland or part from your family. Below are some of the Frequently Asked Questions we receive from international students to assist you in your quest.

Do I need a visa?

If you enrol in a Distance Learning course, there’s no requirement for travel, hence no need to apply for a study visa. You’ll enjoy all the benefits of a UK Degree without the expenses associated with residing in the UK. However, for international students (from outside the UK or EU) aiming to study at our UK study centre, it’s essential to verify your visa status and proceed with the necessary applications if a visa is mandated. Should you need to assess as part of your application, we will coordinate for you to do so at a locally recognised centre.

What are the entry requirements?

For detailed entry requirements tailored to your course of interest, utilise our LSBC Course Finder.

At LSBC, we often take into account work experience. We value practical work experience as we recognise its role in bridging theoretical knowledge with real-world applications. If English isn’t your first language, you have the option to complete an English Language Test.

Course exemptions: If you’ve previously earned credits from modules studied at another institution, we may consider these for RPL (Recognised Prior Learning).

English Language Test

Our English Language Test provides prospective students who don’t have evidence of English proficiency with the opportunity to still enrol. This test uses the same grading system as IELTS.

To take the test, you must have applied for a course at LSBC (London School of Business & Computing), and your application must be confirmed as compatible with the course by our recruitment team.

The cost of the test is [£ TBC], and the turnaround time for results is approximately 48 hours. Once completed, you will be informed if you have met the entry criteria, and you may request a grading certificate which can be used in the future.
