LCPS for International Students
Because London College of Professional Studies (LCPS) is ASIC accredited, international students – that is students from outside the European Economic Area (the EEA includes EU countries and also Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway) and Switzerland* – can apply for a Short Term Student Visa and come to the UK to study a short course at LCPS. The length of the visa will depend on the course you are studying – up to 6 months for any short course (including English language courses), or 11 months if you are taking an ESOL (English language) course.
We offer courses varying in duration from 2 weeks to 11 months, covering a huge array of subjects, including project management, cyber security, health and social care, business and strategic management, accountancy and finance, hotel and tourism, and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages).
*When the United Kingdom leaves the European Union (sometimes called Brexit), students from the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland may also have to apply for visas to study in the UK.
International students study full time in the classroom but also have access to our online portal*. This combination of excellent classroom teaching and additional study online means that courses that might normally take nine months or a year to complete can be completed in just six months.
Our teachers are all highly experienced, qualified specialists and use the latest and most effective pedagogic methodology.
LCPS has a range of superb resources, such as Wi-Fi access for all students, and our extensive online library.
*Access to our online portal is available for all courses except ESOL programmes.
Visit our courses page to see the huge range of programmes that can be studied. All of our short term study programmes lead to recognised qualification from an Ofqual regulated awarding body.
As well as large selection of subject matters, we offer programmes at a variety of levels, from level 3 (the equivalent of an A level or international Baccalaureate diploma) up to level 7 (the equivalent of a master’s degree).
Many of the qualifications that we offer are recognised pathways to university degrees, such as MBA top ups.
Our General English ESOL programmes cover the full range of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)’s six reference levels (i.e. A1 to C2).
The duration of our English language programmes varies from 2 week intensives to 11 month full courses leading to a recognised award. All full-time ESOL programmes lead to a recognised award – Cambridge Assessment English, Trinity, or IELTS.
All our ESOL programmes are taught by experienced, highly qualified native speakers.
