London, England (PRWEB UK) 15 August 2014
London School of Marketing, a leading institution offering accredited marketing and business qualifications in the heart of London, has announced the ongoing success of its global programme of Local Access Points (LAP). LAPs are a technology-based solution which enables them to deliver British qualifications to students without demanding that they travel to the UK. As the first successful UK-based programme of its kind, London School of Marketing’s LAPs have provided a successful alternative to foreign students who have been put off travelling to the UK due to busy lifestyles and the increasingly restrictive immigration laws.
London School of Marketing has gained international recognition based on their outstanding quality of programmes and their innovative means of delivery, which combines the traditional classroom experience alongside access to advanced online platforms. In addition to providing UK-based students with an increased level of support and an extra dimension to their learning experience, the flexible approach allows LSM to deliver full programmes anywhere in the world, while consistently helping their students to achieve above average pass rates in excess of 85%. These results are supported by a wealth of highly regarded accreditations and recognitions, including from the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS), the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) and Universities and Colleges Admission Services (UCAS).
The London School of Marketing LAP programme has been in development for the past 18 months. While offering significant improvements to all of their students, it also counteracts the increasingly restrictive UK and global immigration policies that are currently being put in place. With 90% of their student base having chosen to study using the blended learning programme in order to fit studies around their busy lifestyles, their primary objective was driven by the desire to offer the highest standard of education globally, regardless of where a student lives or what their personal circumstances are. As a result, London School of Marketing has been thriving despite the tighter immigration regulations, while their main competitors have been adversely affected, either folding or drastically reducing their profitability.
“We forecasted that these changes would eventually be introduced a long time ago, and have been doing everything we can to prepare for the upheaval,” said Anton Dominique, CFO/COO of London School of Marketing. “Fortunately, our investment in technology means that we can continue to offer the same high quality of education, whether our students attend classes in the UK, online, or through our many global partners managed via our extensive network of Local Access Points.”
Due to London School of Marketing’s successful history in IT-driven education, combined with the difficulties being experienced by foreign students applying for UK visas, they have set up a network of Local Access Points (LAPs) across the world to enable them to take their qualifications to students instead of expecting them to travel to the UK. This does not exclude students from gaining first-hand experience of the UK, as all students studying through LAPs are given the option to study a block module at one of London School of Marketing’s UK locations, which are located at Imperial College, Birkbeck College and University College of London, without having to relocate for a longer period of time.
London School of Marketing’s stated aim is to break down the barriers of education in order to empower students around the world to develop their skills and improve their career prospects. London School of Marketing’s innovative LAP scheme presents students of all ages and backgrounds with a chance to benefit from world class programmes of learning from the comfort of their home countries.
