About London South Bank University

Established in Central London in 1892, London South Bank University (LSBU) offers a learning experience where students receive tuition only from professionals and specialists with extensive working experience in their fields, outside of the academic setting. The campus’ location and LSBU’s strong employment statistics go hand-in-hand, as the majority of learners are able to find work placements or even full-time employment through the Employability Service office on-site. Living in their residence halls provides the most social experience, but living off-campus is also a viable option thanks to the extensive public transport options nearby.
