Established as the Borough Polytechnic Institute in 1892, London South Bank University (LSBU) has focused on providing professional opportunity for all who can benefit for well over a century. Our original aim 'to promote the industrial skill, general knowledge, health and well-being of young men and women' remains remarkably similar today. Our continuous focus on vocational education and professional opportunity allows us to produce graduates who can meet the challenges of today's workplace.
