Switching to LCCM

We welcome applicants who wish to enter our undergraduate degrees in Year 2 or Year 3. This process is called the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). If you want to switch to LCCM from another university, or restart your higher education after a break, here’s what you need to know:

How to apply using RPL

Please contact us to discuss what you are looking for. We will then arrange an interview for you. During your interview you will need to demonstrate your current skills and discuss your aims, ambitions and why you want to study with us.

We will then map your current qualification (if you have one) or your practical experience to the undergraduate course you intend to study. This enables us to make you an offer that will give you the best chance of studying with us successfully.

Entering in year 2

Ordinarily you will need to show that you have gained or are studying for at least 120 credits at level 4 or above.  This may be the first year of a degree, a Cert HE or HNC from a recognised UK Higher Education Institution however we can accept you into year 2 where your previous experience can be shown to be equivalent to the first year of our degree.

Entering in year 2 from our Access Course

By successfully passing our Access course you will be eligible to join our degree in year 2.

Entering into year 3

You will need to show that you have gained or are studying for 240 credits, at least 120 of which must be at level 5. This may be the first two years of a degree, a Dip HE or HND from a recognised UK Higher Education Institution. The Open University will approve all entry requests at level 6.

Contact us for more information on switching to LCCM.
