Located minutes from the centre of London, LSBU has been preparing and developing students for their working lives for over 125 years. Here at LSBU we put our students first and almost 2,000 International students from over 130 countries have chosen this University.
We're committed to giving our students the very best opportunities and education. This means we give our students not only the qualifications but the skills and knowledge for their careers.
LSBU has been given the award for Entrepreneurial University of the Year at the Times Higher Education Awards.
Our teaching practice is informed and many courses offer work experience opportunities. With our strong employer links and numerous partnerships, all of our courses are professionally accredited or developed in partnership with relevant professional bodies. We are proud to be the only university to be awarded University of the Year for Graduate Employment for two years in a row (The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018, 2019).
Scholarships and fee discounts
We offer a wide range of scholarships and discounts for international students including Nationality Scholarships, fee-discounts for LSBU alumni, plus a 5% discount for early payment of Tuition Fees. To show our commitment, the University has committed over £1m in financial support to help well-qualified students from outside the EU meet their study costs.
Whatever the course, we have the facilities to fully support it. Whether you spend time in our research and skills laboratories, workshops, media centre, theatre, library or Learning Resources Centre we have the appropriate technologies and expert support to complete your experience.
We're committed to first-class facilities and have already invested over £50m in student buildings and learning spaces over the last few years. Our new Student Centre opened in September 2012 and The Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation opened in a stylishly-refurbished GradeII listed building in 2013.

Our campus is in the centre of London within London Fare Zone 1, where we have strong partnerships with the industries that surround us: finance, health, the arts, sciences, culinary, law, education, engineering, construction, architecture. The campus is convenient to get to on public transport, or even by bike or on foot from every direction. We're also minutes away from some of the capital's best bars, restaurants and clubs - our main campus is a 10-minute walk from the South Bank Centre, one of London's premier districts for nightlife, arts and culture - as well as moments from other world-renowned art galleries, world famous theatres and historic museums.
