Accreditations and Memberships
The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). CILT gives successful graduates the opportunity to upgrade their membership to full Chartered membership (MCILT) subject to evidence of appropriate levels of practical experience.
Work Placement Year
All full-time students on this course have the opportunity to take a year-long work placement after the second year. A work placement can allow students to gain valuable experience and apply their learning in practice. Students are encouraged to obtain placements in industry and do this independently, although tutors may provide support and advice during this process.
Please note that students who choose to undertake a work placement do not pay tuition fees for that year, but are required to cover their travel, accommodation, and general living costs.
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 about this please visit LIBS work placements pages.
