Our degree preparation programmes are designed to help students to develop the English language, academic study skills, and subject-specific knowledge required for degree-level study.
The International Year One in Accounting and Finance is designed to enable progression onto a number of named Bachelor's programmes within Lincoln International Business School. Students study academic modules in accounting and finance, data analytics, macro economics, micro economics, business law, and governance; alongside English Language.
Degree Programme Progression
After successfully completing the International Year One programme and obtaining the required grade, students will have the option to progress onto the second year of one of the following degree programmes at the University of Lincoln:
How You Study
Students will commence their programme of studies as a separate cohort within the International College, but will be provided with opportunities to join with the wider LIBS community during the first term. This term aims to build confidence in English alongside developing technical and subject-specific knowledge.
In the second term, students will be fully integrated within the Lincoln International Business School academic community, studying academic modules alongside other students, while retaining the support of the International College.
Students will also be encouraged to engage with the informal curriculum and co-curricular activities associated with Lincoln International Business School, such as Global Opportunities and careers support.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
