London South Bank University

London South Bank University (LSBU) has been providing professional and technical education since 1892, with a vision to transform lives, communities, businesses and society through applied education and insight.

The University’s teaching is underpinned by its relationships with industry, often developed through collaborative research, providing access to industry standard facilities, and with courses accredited by professional bodies and designed with employers.

LSBU’s research is highly applied, focused on addressing real-world challenges and often conducted in close collaboration with industry, business, community and government partners. The University is the leading provider in London of business support for SMEs, funded by European Union structural funds; and its business incubation programme is ranked second amongst all UK universities. LSBU’s research focusses on four main areas: Environment and Sustainability, Health and Social Care, Social Justice and Digital, all of them committed to delivering real world impact. The University is part of the LSBU Group, a ground-breaking collaboration of education providers based in south London.
