Your student experience

  • You’ll study three modules in each term in your first year at LIBF. Each module has a virtual learning environment (VLE) and will consist of weekly introductory material. The material could be a mix of pre-recorded videos, quizzes, articles to read, or a reading from your core text. These should be completed before you attend the lecture.Your lectures will take place on campus, covering the week’s topic as well as offering a question and answer session to promote discussion. You’ll then attend a seminar to consolidate your learning through activities and group work.
  • When you’re not in class, you can use our facilities to socialise, catch up with some independent studying or speak to staff and academics.
  • Our students run several societies – covering everything from football to politics. If you don’t find one that suits you, we’ll support you to create your own!
  • We also host social events for our students, and give you membership to International Student House (ISH) so you can meet students from universities across London. ISH is a great place to socialise and regularly organises trips, days out and more.
