Digital Essentials and Pathways
Digital Essentials and Pathways are student support sessions to introduce new students to the educational technology and systems used at the institution. We have a designated online area to help you learn more about the range of tools and technologies we use at your own pace. They are available to all students and can be accessed at: http://canvas.lsbm.ac.uk

You will be assigned an institutional email address when you enrol and this email address will always be used to communicate with you. Help with your institutional email account can be found at: http://www.lsbm.ac.uk/its-email
You will have access to the University of London's Birkbeck Library where you will have lending capabilities to borrow books and other resources. LSBM students cannot access Birkbeck’s online learning facilities.

London School of Business and Management provides academic support through the Centre for Academic Support and Enhancement (CASE). The resources and contact information about the available academic support can be accessed at: http://www.lsbm.ac.uk/case
CASE provides all students with free support, guidance and tuition in all areas of academic skills and English language. The service provided is aimed to improve your academic performance, regardless of your existing level: good students who want to be excellent ones are catered for equally with struggling students who want to achieve a pass level result.
Plagiarism Avoidance Course
Lectures on Plagiarism Avoidance are offered through CASE (see above).
Additionally, the University of Northampton Plagiarism Avoidance Course (UNPAC) has been designed to enable you to be prepared for the journey through your studies. It explains academic integrity, and tells you all that you need to know to make sure the work you produce is plagiarism free. UNPAC can be accessed at: https://nile.northampton.ac.uk/webapps/blackboard/content/listContent.jsp?course_id=_11_1&content_id=_431097_1

CfAP is a unique resource for all students, where you can receive expert guidance and tuition on any academic skill including essay writing, dissertations, critical analysis, presentation skills, etc. or Maths and statistics.
Although CfAP offers a diverse range of teaching methods and resources, from study packs, to online and class-based workshops, to one-to-one tutorials, there are clearly travel implications for LSBM students.
As such, we recommend that you take advantage of CfAP’s excellent online study packs.
To access these resources and services go to the CfAP web pages.
The Student Engagement and Success Division (SES) provides a range of services to ensure students get the most out of their time here at LSBM.
SES arranges extra-mural activities, employability events and one-to-one pastoral support, working in close collaboration with students to improve their learning experience at the institution.
Additionally, SES co-ordinates and manages a range of service to support students and staff with disabilities and long-term medical conditions.

We provide all students with a Personal Academic Tutor who will be available for academic advice and directing students to appropriate support provision and staff who can help.
