EU students pay the same Tuition Fees as Home students. Dedicated information for EU students is available on our Fees and funding website. Also, see our Fees Checker for individual course fee information.
Prospective Study Abroad students can choose from a wide range of subject areas. If you have spoken to our Course Enquiries team by calling freephone on 0800 923 88 88 or emailed email@example.com and still have questions about our courses contact the relevant Course Director. Check if they will allow you to take your chosen course. This decision will then need to be validated by your university in your home country if you are looking to have these credited to your final qualification. Their contact details can be found on each individual course entry. Complete a course search.
EU students studying at LSBU for the first time are guaranteed accommodation in our halls of residence for semester one if our Accommodation Office receives your application by 1 August. The Accommodation Office can also provide you with information about private housing or short-stay accommodation. For further information see our Accommodation website.
Enrolment and Orientation is the time you officially join university and we formally welcome you to LSBU.
Enrolment is a two-stage process. The first part is online pre-Enrolment and the second is face-to-face Enrolment at the University. You will receive an email with instructions about how to log onto and complete online pre-Enrolment weeks before your course starts and you must attend your face-to-face Enrolment here at the time you select online. We ask you to bring the original copy of your academic transcripts and your passport with you.
We know it's important you settle in quickly to being in the UK to allow you to make the most of your studies. We appreciate you may need support with language and cultural differences and the unfamiliarity of practical needs such as opening a bank account. That's why we help all our new EU students feel welcome and create opportunities for them to make new friends by holding separate EU Orientations a few days before the general student orientation. Run over two days, we provide information on the University, including our activities and societies, support services, IT and library facilities, further details on enrolment and tours of our campus and central London landmarks. Details of when this takes place will be sent to you in late July.
At your Orientation, new EU students are paired with more experienced Home students as part of our LSBU Buddy Scheme. The Home students provide varying support, such as a general university orientation, an introduction to London if necessary, advice and support to help you settle in and advice, feedback, encouragement and support appropriate to help you with life at LSBU. They will be your buddy throughout your time at LSBU, helping you to adjust to life in the UK.
If you are in the final year of a university degree in your home country you may be able to apply for direct entry to the final year of a very similar degree at LSBU, where you'll receive a Bachelor's degree after one year of study in London.
Applications for direct entry for full-time undergraduate degrees are processed through the Universities Central Admissions System (UCAS). Alternatively, find out how to apply to LSBU as a postgraduate student.
