The Place is committed to fair access and to supporting those from underrepresented groups to progress and succeed. Our Access and Participation Plan, submitted to the Office for Students, sets out how we are improving equality of opportunity for underrepresented groups in relation to outreach, student success, and progression.

Transfer Arrangement Statement

There may be instances where students have started their studies at a different university and would like to transfer to complete their studies at LCDS. There may also be times when current students may want to transfer courses. LCDS is committed to supporting students who are considering transferring for both undergraduate and postgraduate entry on a case by case basis and if places are available.

Student Protection Plan

The Student Protection Plan sets out information about how The Place protects students’ interests in the event of unforeseen changes that may affect study, including if a course were to close. The plan should be read in conjunction with the Refunds and Compensation Policy.

The plan has been approved by the Office for Students.
