London Brunel International College (LBIC) - Navitas UK

United Kingdom
Overview

Overview

London Brunel International College (LBIC) is a pathway college, offering a range of undergraduate and postgraduate preparatory courses that provide a direct route to degrees at Brunel University London (BUL).

London

LBIC is located on the University's campus in Uxbridge – a dynamic and rapidly developing suburb at the western perimeter of Greater London. Uxbridge offers a self-contained lifestyle, close to the English countryside and with a character of its own, yet only a 40-minute train journey to Central London.

As the UK's biggest city – with countless museums, art galleries, street markets, theatres, rooftop bars and luxury department stores and over 65 Michelin-star restaurants – you will never be short of things to do in London. It is also the highest-ranking UK city for overall quality of life (Mercer, 2019) and was voted the best city in the world for university students (QS Best Student Cities, 2019)!

Brunel University London

Brunel University London is a self-contained campus university, with everything you need in walking distance, so ideal for a lively student community. Many clubs and societies offer free membership and reduced-price activities, leaving you with more money to spend on exploring the city of London.

The University is focused on preparing its students for the world of work, and over 95% of undergraduate courses offer a work placement with more than one million businesses registered in London, you will be spoilt for choice! As evidence of these efforts, 93% of Brunel graduates are either in employment or further study within six months (DLHE 2016/17), and throughout your time at the University you can access the Professional Development Centre, voted 5th Best Careers Service in the UK (Student Hut 2019).

LBIC

As an LBIC student, you will share the campus and facilities with direct university students, as well as all the same clubs and societies. Integration into the university lifestyle starts from day one. Since the College opened, over 4,000 LBIC students have progressed and graduated from Brunel University London.
