WLCI – an International Experience
The WLCI experience has a uniquely global character, offering students the opportunity of benefitting from a global curriculum, international inputs and interaction with faculty and students from around the world. The objective is to expose the students to global learning environments. This offers them the benefit of a cross-cultural experience, deepening their understanding and knowledge.
A key advantage of studying in WLCI is the option it provides to students to study abroad. WLCI follows the UK system of education, widely accepted in universities across the world including in USA, Australia, Canada and South-east Asia.
All students of WLCI are offered the option of completing their studies in UK. This provides them with the added advantage of having access to global education.
WLCI offers three options to its students:
- Students can complete their chosen academic programme in any WLCI campus in India, leading them to career paths in the industry within the country.
- Students can complete the last semester of their undergraduate/postgraduate courses in Wigan & Leigh College in UK.
- Students may complete the third year at UK to obtain a Bachelors’ degree at affiliated universities such as the University of Huddersfield, the University of Central Lancashire in UK and several others.
(For details, refer to individual sections on the courses.)
