Modes of Study

CIMA Study Modes

LSBF’s flexible delivery means that you can choose a study pattern that’s right for you – whether full time (so you can focus exclusively on your studies), 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).

  • For part-time students, in full time employment, LSBF provides access to lectures on evening and weekend basis so you choose the time that is convenient to you. New for 2015, part-time students also have access to Live Online sessions.  In addition to that, they can always access our HD recorded video lectures and online study resources for maximum benefits and flexibility.
  • Full-time study is suitable for students who want to learn on campus during the week, with the benefit of reinforcing their study with complimentary access to our online learning resources. The full-time CIMA programme is delivered Monday to Friday, between 9am and 6pm.
  • 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.

    As an LSBF student, no matter how you choose to study, you will benefit from 24/7 access to our HD recorded video lectures and online study materials.

Overseas students need to comply with the UK Home Office Student Visa requirements, and should study a minimum of 15 hours per week.
