    LCA Business School offers undergraduate degrees accredited by the University of Wales and Anglia Ruskin University.

    It's just a private college- 95% students will be international who have finished studying but haven't found a job and just want do one more year and well LCA is pretty cheap, so not a bad option in that respects.

    The degree is worthless, of course you might learn some stuff but much better going to a proper uni for both career and social prospects.

    Apologies for hammering the point a bit but would suggest talking to people who have graduated from LCA about their job prospects. I fail to see what value would this accountancy and finance degree add?

    If you are interested in a career in finance- try and get a job and do a professional qualification with it. Many firms offer the AAT/ACA route or the ACCA route.

    If you want to study fulltime and do the ACCA, you can submit a research project after the professional stage and get a degree in Accounting from Oxford Brookes University, which in no way is a top university but far better than University of Wales and Anglia Ruskin University. You will be able to make very good progress towards the ACCA and get a degree as well, and will be much better placed than a LCA full time BSC graduate.

    Only my two cents worth, obviously if you have done your research this might already be in your knowledge.

    From ex-student of LCA.::Want to study at school? LCA will allow you to go back at your childhood. LCA class time “10.00 to 17.00” and “3 days” a week. Really you can enjoy your school life here. Most importantly, in school life we got some vacation but in LCA it is really difficult to find any vacation period. Longest vacation is less than 21 days. Yes! Tuition fee of LCA is really affordable but when you study at LCA you can easily understand about millions reasons behind. If you strategically manage your cost of study in LCA then you can find it will cost you £7000+ per year. “How?! Just consider 3 months vacation (least amount vacation time in UK by other colleges and universities) and during the time you work full time. During 3 months of vacation you can earn £1200-2000 per month. Unfortunately, you are not able to do this because of LCA timetable. Any more information you would like to know, please write me.

    Hi ! I am an Italian student and I have been accepted by LCA. Now I would love to know if it is worthy or not.. I come from a really messed-up country so some bad school aspect for British people, are normal to me.. For example a lot of student in the same classroom, few moments with teachers excetera.. My biggest concern is about the job prospectus: is it good or not?
    Thanks

    Really interesting point you made. I am keen on doing the ACCA course at LCA full time option, right from the foundation papers. However, whilst i study full time will the visa issued me as an ACCA student allow me to work pertime. e;g weekdays esp?

    Thanks.

    Honestly, I am as unknown to the college as you are that's why I asked the questions on the form here.There are quite a few college/uni offering project management, I know this coz wile I was going through the courses offered I could see this course.Google it and I am sure many will appear.The only reason I am interested in this college is that it has very less fees.That's it
