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 Lincoln International Business School, studying academic modules alongside other students, while retaining the support of the international college and separate English Language provision. During this second term students will also choose an elective module, depending on your intended progression route; this will give you a flavour of specific subjects whilst not constraining your choice of Bachelor's progression.

Students will also be encouraged to engage with the informal curriculum and co-curricular activities associated with the Lincoln International Business School community, such as Global Opportunities and careers.
