The brighter choice

We’re LSBU. We’ve been putting knowledge to work for more than 100 years.

Through our unrivalled connections with business and the professions, through practice oriented teaching, and through our real-life problem solving research, we have a proven track record in equipping people to make a meaningful and significant contribution to business and society.
We’re enterprise driven and enterprising, and for under- and postgraduates seeking professional career success, we’re the brighter choice.

Our education is relevant, accredited and professionally recognised. Our track record on employability and starting salaries is first rate. And our students tell us our environment is fun. Whether it’s helping you find the right course, establish a more flexible means to study; whatever it takes, we’re focused on your accomplishment and achievement.

Our location in the dynamic Elephant & Castle means we are on the doorstep of commerce in the City of London and next to the cultural vibrancy of the Southbank. Our proximity to the world of work and diverse cultural influences shapes our approach to teaching and learning.

We’re home to more than 3,500 international students from over 1,200 countries. It’s a rich and enriching cultural community. We provide all the support required to happily and successfully arrive, live and study in the UK. Through our unrivalled and accessible location, through our understanding of all the practical requirements, and through our appreciation of the small things that make a big difference.


Facilities: All the support you need

Having the right environment to learn and space to think are key ingredients for success. Whatever the course, we have the facilities to fully support it. Whether you’re in our research and skills laboratories, workshops, media centre, theatre, library or Learning Resources Centre you’ll find the appropriate technologies and expert support to complete your experience. We're committed to first-class facilities and have already invested £50m in student buildings and learning spaces over the last few years. We're continuing these campus developments by opening our Student Centre in September 2012 and Enterprise Centre in 2013.

Student Centre

Opening in Sept 2012, the Student Centre will bring together many of the University's non-academic student support services and house our Students' Union. The development will take a prime location, with a vibrant and exciting ground floor foyer, with a first floor area perfect for meeting friends, social learning and group working. The architect for the project is London-based Hawkins Brown, a past Higher Education Architect of the Year.

Enterprise Centre

At LSBU, we're committed to business start-ups and knowledge transfer. We appreciate the space and resources new businesses need so our dedicated centre will bring resources together in a prominent  hub for our campus and London's commercial needs. The development will transform this local landmark into an open gateway for the campus and make it fit for the 21st century. The Grade II listed Georgian Buildings at St George's Circus will be transformed to become the University's Enterprise Centre. It will house incubation space, allied retail units, meeting rooms and an open public reception space, gallery and café.


With Tuition Fees changing from September 2012, our package of financial support
could make the difference. We offer a range of scholarships / fee discounts and if you’re recent LSBU graduate you can take advantage of our alumni discounts .You can also choose to spread the cost with our flexible payment options and eligible students can receive Government initiatives, such as Career Development Loans and childcare benefits. Details about funding opportunities from research councils, educational trusts and charities plus employer sponsorship funding options are on the LSBU website.
