LCA Business School was founded in 2000 by Ravi Gill FCCA as the London College of Accountancy. The School’s initial focus was on professional courses leading to awards by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). Both full-time and part-time ACCA courses were offered and continue to be offered. LCA is the first accountancy college ever to win the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in 2006 and a second award in 2010.
Anglia Ruskin University formally awarded LCA Business School 'branch campus' status in early 2012. All undergraduate and postgraduate degrees on offer to new students are validated by Anglia Ruskin University. With some 31,000 students and campuses in Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough, Anglia Ruskin University is one of the largest universities in the East of England; LCA students who successfully complete a degree course have their degrees conferred at a graduation ceremony at Anglia Ruskin University and receive an Anglia Ruskin University degree certificate; Anglia Ruskin University acts as the Tier 4 sponsor for LCA students requiring a visa to study in the UK (under UKBA regulations) and confers the right on such students to work up to 20 hours a week during term time and full-time during university vacations.
