Students learning on digital devices

Covid-19 latest information

We  are  monitoring  the  situation  as  it  unfolds  and  following  government  advice.

Current status

University Campus - We are providing regular information and support to all our current and prospective students. 


Current students

The Lovat Lane Campus is now closed.

All our face-to-face lectures, seminars and assessments are now being delivered online – and we’re still here to support you.  

We will be sending out further information about assessments in due course. Please continue to read emails to keep up to date with the latest information. Thank you for bearing with us. 


Here's the latest information for apprentices studying with us.


  •  We are continuing to deliver our academic programmes in line with the scheduled timetable, and all course materials are online. 
  • Unfortunately any face-to-face workshops have had to be cancelled, postponed or moved online. 
    Students should have already been told about arrangements for any workshops planned in March or April.
  • Arrangements for future workshops will be confirmed in due course. 
  • All webinars continue to be recorded and available digitally.
    Progress reviews

  •  For any apprentices expecting progress reviews, your personal tutor will be in touch as normal to arrange. These will be conducted remotely until further notice.
    Breaks in learning

  •  As per published Government advice if apprentices cannot attend training (see 'Disruption to training'), a break in learning can be initiated.
  • If you think you need to initiate a break in learning, please speak to your employer first and then contact us by email: ktaylor@libf.ac.uk

    Module assessments
  •  Assignment submissions are unaffected as these take place online.  
  • At present all exams are scheduled to take place as planned. If this changes, we’ll give students plenty of advance notice.

Prospective students

The exam regulator, Ofqual, is working closely with schools and colleges on assessments and how final grades will be calculated. These will be based on a number of different pieces of evidence.  

If you have an offer of a place from us, we would like to reassure you that we will be judging each individual's application on their merits and will be flexible in assessing grades with respect to the offer we have made to you.

We will continue to monitor government guidance as things change and will provide regular updates.
