Introducing the Global Experience - Global University Campus

Introducing the Global University Campus

Learn. Discover. Experience.

At Limkokwing University, we take a hands-on approach to learning. We collapse classroom walls and borders, nurture ties with innovative SMEs and multinational companies, and bring all these strands of experience to our students to ensure a truly global education.

By taking part in our Global University Campus programme, our students are exposed to the latest trends and practices of global companies, right at the heart of where it happens. They discover a practical approach to solving and handling different problems and situations through project-based research. They get to network and liaise with top experts in their respective fields of study.

And now, this opportunity is available to everyone1.

1 - Open to all students who have completed high school or are pursuing higher education

What is Global University Campus?

The Global University Campus programme provides students with a short but intense learning experience in the design and business capital of the world: London.

Students who sign-up for the programme will take part in specialised workshops, cultural visits, and lectures by guest speakers from leading industries. Expect to learn new strategies, design ideas, key business ethics and develop skills needed to give you an edge upon graduation.

Previous groups of Global University Campus students have visited and listened to industry speakers from HSBC, Adidas, Apple, Bank of England, Jaguar, Aardman Animations, BBC, Google and other multinational companies on top of visiting world famous historical and cultural landmarks in London.

The programme provides students with a short residency in one of the most multicultural, advanced and vibrant cities in the world. They will take part in industry workshops, cultural visits and focused-group lectures by guest speakers from specialised fields and prominent organisations.

New projects and experiences

“The whole programme was fun and educational. We learned so much through industrial trips, as well as from the staff of Limkokwing London and our respective supervisors. We learned to enhance our artistic abilities by working on projects to create something for the future. We had to think innovatively and come up with great ideas that would help the world in many different ways. Also, the trip allowed us to experience a Western lifestyle where people were friendly and traveling was easy.”
