programme consisting of 16 units, all of which are compulsory as shown:
In line with our commitment to enhance our students’ study experience, London School of Marketing is determined to provide as many different learning opportunities to our students as possible.
As a result of our recent student survey, some students have suggested us to arrange supporting face-to-face workshops, to complement their studies with us. These will be provided in addition to the usual personal tutor support provided by our tutor panel. These workshops are suitable to any of our undergraduate or master’s degree students and they are designed to enhance the student’s understanding of research, methodology and other essential study skills.
It is our intention to make these workshops as interactive as possible, with discussion groups, interactive activities and presentations, taking place throughout the workshop. Further, students will have plenty of opportunities to
interact with fellow students and discuss and learn from their study experiences as well.
These workshops are delivered in London by London School of Marketing’s well-experienced panel of lecturers and students will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in further discussions both during and after the
workshops. These workshops are arranged on demand and incur an additional fee.
For students that require visas to visit the UK, please check the UK visa and immigration website for suitable short terms visas. Further details can be found at https://www.gov.uk/study-visit-visa/overview
