What Make Us Different?
LSST is a new concept in higher education that is designed to integrate study into the life that you lead.
Gaining higher-level skills and qualifications is really important, but sometimes it can be difficult or virtually impossible to fit traditional study into your life.
That’s why we’ve designed this new approach to learning. LSST is designed specifically for people who want to benefit from high quality courses but who have decided that the traditional student experience is not for them.
We provide a focused teaching and learning environment that will lead to academic and professional qualifications. And this is precisely where our commitment lies.
As well as making sure that our courses meet the criteria for an academic qualification – wherever possible we have designed our courses around the standards for professional qualifications.
We want every single student that leaves LSST to have the relevant skills and knowledge that will help them secure employment in their chosen profession – so you have the potential to achieve an academic qualification plus a professional qualification, which could help make you even more attractive to employers.
We offer a structured teaching week with the flexibility to choose morning or afternoon classes, wherever possible and numbers permitting, to help you study around your other commitments. This can be an ideal option if you are a mature student returning to education or need to fit your studies around your job. LSST puts you in charge. You manage your studies to suit your work responsibilities, your personal commitments, your lifestyle – working towards an academic qualification is challenging but it shouldn’t be a chore.
Quality of teaching
Our course teams contain both academics and practicing professionals. Their aim is to work together to help you discover your subject from all angles, the theory and the practice. And unlike many other institutions, our tutors maintain high levels of class contact and offer support to help ensure you are learning throughout your time at LSST.
LSST validates all of our awards, so you can be confident that you are studying at university level and be assured that the content is of high quality.
The fees that you pay at LSST are significantly lower than those at many other comparable institutions. Fees cover all of your classes, online tutorials, some of the learning materials and access to the College Learning Resource Centre. As a student at LSST you also have reading rights to LSST.
We firmly believe that LSST gives you access to a quality and relevant learning experience at a price that represents excellent value for money. We also believe that you will be able to judge the returns on your investment through your improved career prospects.
