London South Bank University


Recommended Posts

London South Bank University (LSBU) is celebrating 125 years this year. Established as the Borough Polytechnic Institute in 1892, the original aim of LSBU was 'to promote the industrial skill, general knowledge, health and wellbeing of young men and women', which remains remarkably similar today. Our continuous focus on vocational education and professional opportunity allow us to produce graduates who can meet today's workplace challenges.
We continuously use our links with industry to build knowledge that ensures our course content, facilities, and equipment recreated the 21st-century workplace's demands. By doing this, we strongly support our claim of being a leading applied university. Browse or search our Case Study Finder for facility information. It's full of student experiences and detailed insights into what we offer. Plus, each entry in our Course Finder has facility information associated with each course.
If you would like to speak to us about hiring any of these facilities, find more in our venue hire section. If you're looking to hire meetings and conference facilities in our Keyworth Centre, contact our Senior Manager, Corporate, and Recruitment Events by calling 020 7815 6706 or emailing gordons8@lsbu.ac.uk.
We're always thinking of new ways to improve our campus facilities. In the past ten years alone, we've spent well over £60m in new buildings, location infrastructure, improved teaching facilities, and enterprise initiatives. Read what's planned in our latest campus developments. LSBU's Corporate Strategy 2015-2020 sets out how the University will achieve its vision of becoming London's top modern University by 2020. The strategy builds on the University's strengths by focusing on enhancing student success, delivering real-world impact, and providing genuine access to opportunity through academic activity and links to business and the professions.
London South Bank University (LSBU) considers financial sustainability, particularly in the current climate of uncertainty and change, as absolutely fundamental to delivering its mission of supporting students to achieve professional success. As well as the efficiency program that has saved £6m, we have also developed plans to deliver a prudent sustainable annual operating surplus, which has enabled us to manage uncertainty as we invest in the future and continue to strengthen the quality of support given to students.
The University is continually looking to develop and extend the benefits of its location and its varied landscape features. This leads us to create innovative new buildings, redevelop Grade II-listed properties, and carry out changes and improvements that continually enhance our student offer. Read more about campus developments.
The University has several core policies relating to academic matters and a set of general policies that govern our approach to student affairs and life on campus (for both students and staff). Please take the time to familiarise yourself with these critical resources – and use this section as a reference point to return to throughout your time at LSBU. These regulatory documents support and clarify how we, the University, ensure that students are fairly treated – and cover the entire contractual student relationship from accepting an offer to study here, through assessments to your final award as a graduate.
The Academic Regulations of the University provide the means through which the standards of our academic awards, including research degrees, are assured. The Academic Quality and Enhancement Manual of London South Bank University (The University) sets out the University's educational provision, including validation, examinations, and student engagement. The University's Admissions and Enrolment Procedure details University admissions, complaints, and appeals about admissions decisions and University enrolment.
The Assessment and Examination Procedure covers University assessment procedures, examinations procedures, examination boards, academic misconduct, certificates, and transcripts. The University Fitness to Practise Procedure covers all students in the School of Health and Social Care. They are undertaking a program of study which involves patient or service user contact. It allows for registration to practice as a professional. The Fitness to Study Procedure is intended as a supportive procedure that can be used by staff when a student's health, wellbeing, and behavior have a detrimental impact on their ability to progress academically and function at University.
The University holds a Tier 4 sponsor license, which allows it to sponsor students under Tier 4 General of the points-based system. The University takes its license very seriously. The regulations, policies, and guidance listed here concern both applicants who require sponsorship under Tier 4 and current students who hold a Tier 4 visa. The University's Research Degrees Code of Practice covers academic awards, the application process, registration period, research and professional development, supervision, progression, examination, Ph.D. by published work, higher doctorates, appeals on examination result, and graduation.
This Code of Practice applies to the following awards: Masters by Research (MA/MSc), MPhil, Ph.D., Ph.D. by Published Work, Professional Doctorates, Higher Doctorates. The University's Student Appeals Procedure describes the processes for students to appeal against the university's academic decisions, in other words, decisions relating to the administration of the marking process, progression, and the awarding of qualifications.
