Modes of Study

CIMA Study Modes

LSBF’s flexible delivery means that you can choose a study pattern that’s right for you – full-time (so you can dedicate your time entirely to studying and qualify quicker), part time (so you can balance studying with your career), or online (so you can revisit any lectures you missed or recap any key points).

  • Full-time study is suitable for those who wish to study on campus during the week. CIMA full-time study is a mixture of on campus lectures and online support through mock exams, electronic lecture notes, a question bank and a multiple choice question generator. The programme is delivered during the week, between 10am and 5pm with nine days of lectures per subject, covering 15 hours per week.
  • For part-time students, in full time employment, LSBF provides access to lectures on evening, weekend or block (two weekdays and one weekend) basis so you choose the time that is convenient for you. Our part-time students have access to Live Online sessions and our online study resources for maximum benefits and flexibility.
  • Live Online study is suitable for people who require intensive preparation. Live Online classes are just like on campus classes, where students can engage with tutors in real time, ask questions and interact with other students. The lectures are delivered via our award-winning learning platform - InterActive, and each level is taught over the course of three weeks.
  • Online study gives you the flexibility of learning from our expert tutors around-the-clock via HD recorded studio lectures, through our innovative learning platform, powered by InterActive. You can learn, review and revise with everything you need at your fingertips.
