How to Apply to Study at LBIC
LBIC is able to accept EU and International students, as well as British students (September only). Below are the steps you need to follow.
Step 1: Complete the LBIC application form
You can apply for our course by making an application online here. Remember to send it with supporting documents - including your academic qualifications and English test results - to LBIC or to your
LBIC representative (Certified translations must accompany all documents that are not in English).
Step 2: Receive offer of admissions
You will either receive an offer of admissions from our admissions team, via email within 2-3 working days (standard application process for approved applications) or one of the team will be in touch to request additional information.
Step 3: Accept the offer
Accept your offer by paying the course fee deposit stated on your offer letter. You will also need to sign the acceptance form and return it to our admissions team. You can make a payment via bank transfer or pay online. Please remember to input your LBIC 5 digit student ID in the reference box when making a payment, so we can allocate the funds to your account.
EU: For EU students, you can pay for your LBIC course using Student Finance. January 2021 is the last intake to accept SFE funding. Apply for funding by completing the online Student Finance England application. Once this has been completed please send us your CRN (Customer Reference Number) as part of your acceptance to email@example.com.
You can apply for on campus accommodation once you have accepted your offer. Visit our accommodation page for more information.
Step 4: Confirmation of Acceptance (CAS) - International students only
Once we have received your tuition fee payment, LBIC will provide your CAS, which is required for your visa application once your place is fully confirmed.
Step 5: Apply for your visa - International students only
Full details on the visa application process can be found here.
It is very important that you notify LBIC the outcome of your visa application. Please notify us your visa outcome by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Step 6: Arrive in the UK
Taxi's can be found outside each of the Heathrow Terminals. Ask the taxi driver to drop you at the Cleveland Road entrance to Brunel University London. This is where the security office is and where you will find the keys to your accommodation if you arrive outside normal office hours. If you arrive between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday - ask the taxi driver to use the Kingston Lane entrance to Brunel University London. You can come to LBIC at the Russell Building. Find us on campus using the campus map. The public transport system in London is called Transport for London (TFL), and is very cheap to use. Visit the website to plan your journey around London. We recommend you use buses where possible, as taxis can be approximately £25 from Heathrow to campus. There are buses from the airport, which stops outside the University as well. Alternatively, if you would like to book an airport pick up taxi, you can book it through here.
Step 7: Enrol at LBIC and Brunel University London
Start the first stage of your studies at LBIC and complete your degree at Brunel University London. You will need to enrol at the University first at the Student Centre. Once you have done that, please make your way to LBIC, located in the Russell building to complete your enrolment with LBIC.
The UK Government recently announced that many students will be interviewed as part of the student visa application process to provide further assurance that applicants granted a visa, do intend to study in the UK.
