I would encourage every nurse to come onto this course, especially nurses who want to make an impact on the lives children and young people.

I’m Australian actually and so working in the centre of London both studying at London South Bank and working at Great Ormond Street provided me with an absolute dream.
Studying at LSBU is an absolute delight as we have great lecturers that have so much to offer. The Faculty of Health and Social Care also has a wonderful learning environment with its new facilities in the K2 building.
The best thing about the course has been learning about Chinese culture and language, as well as the opportunity to do a study placement in China.
The thing which I most enjoy on my course is the placements and it’s because I’m very much a hands-on person and I can really apply my theoretical knowledge from the lectures and the seminars to practice. It also has given me a real taste of my future profession.
LSBU offers one of the oldest and most established occupational therapy courses in the country. It's also one of the best and is convenient for me to travel to. I found the university has an incredibly supportive environment – especially for mature students. We have access to a lot of materials off campus, which makes it easier to juggle other commitments.
I found the placements really complement what we learn in the classroom and give us some insight into the real world of occupational therapy.
As a social work student I value working with people from different cultures and walks of life. One of LSBU's greatest strengths is the diversity of its student base, and because of this I have met people from a huge range of backgrounds.
I've really valued the range of approaches and specialism among the teaching staff and I've found the University's study support services particularly good.
There are students from many health care professions at LSBU, such as nursing, radiography, physiotherapy, midwifery and many others, working in placements in hospitals all over the capital, like Tommy’s, Great Ormond Street, Kings, and Whipps Cross.
Having studied my first degree at a red brick institution, I was keen to see how LSBU compared. I really enjoy LSBU's teaching style. Their class sizes are smaller so I get more personalised attention and the teaching staff are very experienced and dedicated.
I've been really impressed with the variety of teaching on offer and their emphasis on cutting edge research that drives the sector.
