Founded

1892

Description

Founded as the Borough Polytechnic Institute in 1892, the institution is located in the London Borough of Southwark and is among the five largest universities in the city.

The institution has had several different names but it did not become known as the London South Bank University (LSBU) until a century after it was originally founded, when the British government enacted the Further and Higher Education Act of 1992, granting full university status to all polytechnic institutions.

In 2015 the LSBU infrastructure was refined and today there are seven academic schools, namely the School of Applied Sciences, the School of Arts and Creative Industries, the School of The Built Environment and Architecture, the School of Business, the School of Engineering, the School of Health and Social Care, and the School of Law and Social Sciences.

Around three-quarters of LSBU’s 17,000-strong student population are undergraduates, and over 70 percent of LSBU students come from the Greater London area with 25 percent from south-east London. In the 2014-15 academic year, 83 percent of the students enrolled were over 21 years-old, meaning a significant proportion of mature students.

A lot of the university degree programs are vocational and are accredited by professional organisations, meaning that a high proportion of graduates are able to go straight into employment on completion of their course.

Since it was awarded university status LSBU has had three chancellors – Christopher Mclaren, internationally-renowned former newscaster Sir Trevor MacDonald and Australian investor Richard Farleigh, perhaps best-known for his role on BBC’s Dragon’s Den.

Very good academic level of university on masters level. Plenty of resources and support from academic staff in terms of academic writing and research. Also very convenient location in London and always plenty of things going on social life wise. Could highly recommend to everybody who already has some academic background and is ready to do also some independent research.

I consider London South Bank University, as a good university with modern amenities, located between Elephant and Castle (The closest tube station) , Borough, Waterloo and Southwark and with very professional teacher and staff in general , willing to guide you during your academic years and help you to improve yourself as a student and future professional. I decided to choose this university to study Business Management because I read very good reviews about the course and also because of the study plan ( the modules of the three years). The university is very interesting, with many buildings, from the old architecture to modern architecture, they promote the diversity, which I found very interesting, they try to incentive students to apply for internships to gain more experience. They try to help students getting in touch with different corporates, so they can start understanding their future careers. I don't know about the other courses, but LSBU is a good university to study business, the range of teachers, are very professional and competent.

The teachers are very friendly, they always answer my questions, help me to do all of the assignments, and give the students right time to have a break for 15 minutes. I know some of the security, and they are very friendly as well. I always get a warm welcome from the security and feels like they are my friend, not the security.
