We want you to have all the information you need to make an informed decision on where and what you want to study. To help you choose the course that’s right for you, we aim to bring to your attention all the important information you may need. Our What You Need to Know page offers detailed information on key areas including contact hours, assessment, optional modules, and additional costs.
† 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.
As part of this course, students can choose a one-year work placement following the second year, enabling them to apply their knowledge in a real business setting. They are expected to to source their own paid placement, and tutors can provide support during the process if required. No tuition fees will be due for this year, but students will be expected to pay their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs.
For 2021/22 students who successfully complete their studies with a year of work placement will receive the award title BA (Hons) Business Studies (with Work Placement). Those who do not will receive a BA (Hons) Business Studies award, or equivalent exit award. For 2022/23 students completing a work placement year, they will receive the award title BA (Hons) Business (with Work Placement). Those who do not will receive a BA (Hons) Business award, or equivalent exit award.
Those students who are unable to undertake or choose not to participate in the work placement year scheme, may have the option to undertake a work-related project such as a piece of consultancy or an enterprise project, to give them experience of solving real industry problems.
Students who require a Tier 4 visa to study will be issued a CAS with a course length that should be sufficient for you to complete the course without the placement year. If you decide to undertake the the course and find a work placement as part of the course this will add additional time to your course and a new Tier 4 visa will be required either before or after the work placement to extend your stay in the UK.
There are also opportunities for relevant work experience and career development as part of the degree course itself, as well as through various other Lincoln International Business School and University schemes. For more information, please visit LIBS work placement pages.
