Creating the right learning environment is highly regarded at London South Bank University and that's why we think you'll find we're the right choice for anyone wanting to study health or social care.

We've invested heavily in the Faculty's infrastructure. Our facilities are impressive and make a big difference to our students' experience. We have spent millions to create a beautiful new building to house the Faculty on our Southwark Campus. It features specially designed lecturing and teaching rooms as well as a whole new suite of state-of-the-art skills laboratories with many of the latest health care innovations. The laboratories are the ideal place for you to practise your skills in an environment that accurately recreates hospital and community situations.
As part of your LSBU course you'll spend a significant proportion of your time on placement. The faculty has established links with a number of leading organisations that deliver health and social care services throughout London and the South East of England, including some of London's top institutions. Don't be surprised to find yourself on the wards of Guy's, St Thomas' or Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children or in community based services working alongside and learning from qualified, experienced and expert practitioners.
At LSBU we believe in working with leading healthcare innovators to enhance our student experience and to reinforce the reputation of our institution.We are always looking towards the next generation of healthcare provision. Recently we were chosen by the Chinese Government to site the world's first Confucius Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is a great honour for our teaching quality to be recognised in this way and we are delighted to be able to offer qualifications in authentic Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Two major reviews by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) have confirmed that our courses for allied health sciences, health visiting, nursing and midwifery are being delivered to the highest possible standard.
With over 23,000 students we see the value in strongly upholding our equality and diversity policy. Support is also very much at the heart of what we offer. Key to this is our Centre for Learning Support & Development (CLSD) that supplies a host of learning support services and specialist technologies.
CLSD can help with a range of issues that students may face. CLSD services include:
Our courses are recognised by leading professional bodies and where appropriate validated by them.
