“This is my first year at London South bank university and I can’t complain at all! Nice and polite staff. Clean and accessible building. Huge library. The canteen is full of choice. Thousands of interesting courses. Lectures and tutors seminars are very helpful and organised. Good social life, lots of societies, really good study abroad program could offer more career/service. There's loads of society's for basically anything you can think of, and they're really easy to join into. Everyone is willing to except new people at any time so it's a really friendly atmosphere. Very bad on careers my sister went to UCL and imperial to study. My sister had advice from lecturers re her CV and possible career choices. At least at Imperial they actually had speakers come in to talk about career routes nothing like that was offered at LSBU. I only hope they've improved.”

“London South Bank is university filled with countless learning opportunities for multiple students. It's a community of education that is both open and welcome to different cultures, races and religions as well to people that identify as a different sex and people with learning difficulties and disabilities. Attending LSBU means that you truly get to learn who you are.”
