University Pathway with Berkeley City College

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

LSI is now able to offer our students a great new University pathways partner. This opportunity is open to students with a high level of English who have completed an intensive course with us. Once LSI students have matched these criteria they can then transfer to Berkeley City College (BCC). Luckily BCC is conveniently located just across the street from LSI Berkeley!

Berkeley City College

Berkeley City College is a highly respected community college. Students can complete the first two years of their undergraduate college credit, working towards their four year Bachelor’s Degree.  Once the student completes their program at BCC they can then apply to state universities throughout the USA. As students will have already done two years at BCC they will need to do just two more to complete the four year  degree.

This new pathway partner is a great new addition to our growing lists of partners. More information can be found on our website.

 

LSI New York Working With The New York Film Academy

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

The New York Film Academy is an LSI Partner University. The Academy offers a wide range of diploma courses from film making and animation to acting and musical theatre. As a LSI Partner, students at LSI New York with an upper-intermediate level of English or higher, can apply for diploma courses at the Academy.

One recent LSI student did just that. In his native Corsica, Marcello Valery is a film maker, photographer and actor. Marcello decided to enrol on the General 20 course at LSI New York from September until May. At the same, during the evenings, he enrolled on film and acting courses at the Academy. For him, it was a chance to improve not just his English , but his professional skills.

Whilst Marcello enjoyed his studies at LSI and the New York Film Academy, he claims that he has been inspired most by the chance to meet and form friendships with the wide variety of students at LSI New York. As a result of the happy time he spent in New York, Marcello now plans to return to the West Coast in the Fall to continue his film studies. We wish him success with his future studies.

Marcello Valery studied at LSI New York and LSI Partner University the New York Film Academy

New University Pathway for LSI Vancouver

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

LSI Vancouver have just signed a university pathway agreement with the prestigious Acsenda School of Management. This local business college offers degree programmes in business management.  LSI students will now be accepted onto the college’s undergraduate courses once they have attained a C grade or higher on the LSI Cambridge CAE course .

Business Courses at Acsenda

A BA in Business Administration takes 4 years to complete. However students with credits from degree programmes at  recognised universities worldwide can transfer these to Acsenda. In this case, degrees courses at the college can take up to 2 and half years to complete. While studying at Acsenda,  international students can work up to 20 hours a week. After finishing their programme they can apply for a post graduate work permit, enabling them to work in Canada for as long as they had studied on their degree course.

We feel that this new pathway agreement presents an exciting opportunity for both current and future LSI students.  Our students can continue their studies whilst acquiring highly marketable skills in business management.
