Are there any English language requirements?

For students who do not live or come from an English language speaking country, then we recommend taking an IELTS course to improve your language to level 5.5 or higher. This can be done alongside our courses. Your minimum level of English may vary depending upon which university you decide to complete your top-up qualification from.

Do I need any previous experience and qualifications?

You will need to have an IELTS score of Level 5.5 or above on completion of the LSBT course. You can study an English course alongside the LSBT course. At Level 4/5, you will require a full secondary education to be eligible to enrol onto the course, and universities will require a minimum age before embarking on the university top-up programme. At Level 7, you will require 5 years of managerial experience if you do not have a BA degree. This may vary for various University partners. However, we will look at every application individually and some exceptions may be made.
