LIPC will provide all the support you need to achieve success with your on-going degree studies.  For undergraduate studies, you will study either Stage 1 (IYZ) or Stage 2 (IFY) of your degree within the College, before joining Stage 2 or Stage 3 at DMU to complete your undergraduate studies. For postgraduate studies, you will study Stage 1 (Pre-Master's) within the College, before joining Stage 2 at DMU to complete your postgraduate studies.

LIPC is based at the heart of DMU’s campus - a few minutes’ walk from the vibrant, multi-cultural city of Leicester and just over an hour away from London by train. From the day you begin your studies at LIPC, you automatically become part of DMU - a truly international university with students from more than 130 countries.
