Transcript

Unidentified Speaker: Sir I would also appreciate if you could give us some insight into LSE’s exact role in the programmes offered at ISBF under the University of London. What is the academic direction do we need?

Dr. Abdey: Okay. So, the University of International programmes been established for many, many years and indeed all of the academic content is as great and migrates under the academic direction of the LSE. And, indeed what does this mean some people may not entirely sure. Well, that means all of the study materials, subject guides, the actual syllabus, the content in every single course has been developed by LSE academics.

And, for the most part they reflect the courses towards internally at the LSE. So, mine has been statistics, the students studying for example the statistics 1 and statistics 2 at first year courses, they’re modelled on the equivalent courses I teach to students at London School of Economics.

So, what does this mean? In practice for ISBF students say, well, that means the material we are studying is identical, I know because I lecture it internally, identical to what students are learning campus in London, because the advantage of studying through the international programmes is that you don’t have to have the costs of actually studying in London, it’s a very expensive city to live in, but you still get the benefit from that same excellent quality of education and upon graduation where you have your University of London degree due to the academic direction of the LSE, it gives the awards a gravitas and credibility in the wider world because we’ve been going forward for over 150 years I believe, it’s very well established, well respected qualification of the world over, so whether a student is looking to go straight into the world of work after graduation or they wish to pursue post graduate studies, masters degree in elite universities in the UK or the US or anywhere else then University of London degree is really possible to success and that’s all due to the academic rigour which we have in these programmes and that’s a direct consequence of the development by the academics at LSE.
