London South Bank University (LSBU) is one of London's largest and oldest universities. Since 1892 we have been providing students with vocationally relevant and professionally recognised education. A cosmopolitan university with over 25,000 students, we draw students from over 140 countries.

Location-wise, our main campus is a short walk from many major London landmarks and is at a hub of local transport with Waterloo and London Bridge our nearest stations and the London Underground on our doorstep.

Academically, LSBU has seven Schools of study covering a wide range of subject areas and specialisms: Applied Sciences; Arts & Creative Industries; Built Environment & Architecture; Business; Engineering; Health & Social Care; Law & Social Sciences.

Our academics are leaders in their field, most with industry experience meaning their teaching and research are professionally focused and relevant.

Some of LSBU’s most attractive features and achievements include the following:

*LSBU is the no. 1 London Modern University for both graduate starting salaries and graduate employment prospects (The Times Good University Guide 2016)

*Awarded the highest possible rating for the quality of our education by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA).

*The top modern university in London for research in General Engineering (REF 2014) and the only London university to have an undergraduate programme in Petroleum Engineering.

*Internships and/or placements embedded in many programmes.

*All courses accredited or developed in association with leading professional bodies. For example, LSBU is a Gold Status ACCA Approved Learning Provider and an IBM partner for Informatics and Computing.

*Alumni in leading positions within diverse sectors such as governance, media, health, marketing and engineering/construction.

*Over £50m invested in modern facilities over the past five years, including a brand new Student Centre and the Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation.

We have an important, enduring and consistent mission to create student opportunity for future success, and this is encapsulated by our vision: To be the most admired UK university for creating professional opportunity.
