Industry projects and internship provide unequalled experiences
Industry collaboration is a unique part of a Limkokwing education. We work closely with famous names like Eric Way who is a top fashion designer and other well-known commercial brands like Laura Ashley, the Corus chain of hotels, Nestle and L'Oreal. In London, being close to the top-end of all the main economic activities gives us the perfect opportunity to connect our students to industry relevant experiences that can end in entrepreneurship.
The campus is extraordinary because of the ancient building interiors which further accentuates the learning. Computer labs provide Internet access and there are lecture halls for presentations and academic discussions. An international lifestyle cafe is a unique addition. The London campus brings invaluable European experiences that add value to a student's pursuit of a new kind of 21st century learning.
