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.
The course is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). Students completing the degree can achieve a Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership from the CMI.
The degree has a strong relationship with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). As Affiliate Members of the CMI, students have access to CMI’s business mentoring scheme, career development centre, and professional learning resources to help develop professional expertise and to build relationships with industry throughout their degree.
As part of this course, students can choose to undertake a year on work placement following the second year. Students are expected to source their own paid placement, and support is available throughout the application process. No tuition fees will be due for this year, but students will be expected to cover their own travel, accommodation, and general living costs.
Students who successfully complete their studies with a year of work placement will receive the award title BA (Hons) Business and Management (with Work Placement). Those who do not will receive a BA (Hons) Business and Management award, or equivalent exit award.
Students who require a Tier 4 visa to study BA (Hons) Business and Management (with Work Placement) 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 BA (Hons) Business and Management (with Work Placement) 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 placements pages.
The degree works closely with the Business Society to provide access to industry through guest speakers and business visits. This is very much the social arm of the degree.

Bite-sized online training is also available to enhance proficiency with frequently used business software. Training is available for packages such as Word, Outlook, Excel.
