International (non-EU) study abroad
We make coming to London South Bank University (LSBU) as easy as we can
LSBU’s International Study Abroad programme brings students together from all over the world. By studying at LSBU, students become part of an integrated Study Abroad community on an incredibly diverse campus.
As an International Study Abroad student you will be able to choose modules from across the University. In addition to the three modules chosen, all Study Abroad students take one of our Study Abroad specific modules: ‘London: City of Change’ or ‘Made in London’. These allow students to learn about the history, culture, and fashion of London with specialist teaching. Within these, there is the opportunity to take tailored trips exclusive to international Study Abroad students to places such as The Royal Museums Greenwich and Shakespeare’s Globe.
Please see our key dates (PDF File 221 KB), which have been tailored to accommodate your studies both home and abroad.
LSBU are proud to offer credit-earning internships to all international Study Abroad students in a variety of businesses and institutions. After a successful interview, you will be placed in a role that best serves your individual needs, interests, ability, and academic background within commuting distance. You will have the chance to become a professional member of the team that you are working in, which means you will need to attend your placement each week during your stay (unless agreed otherwise with your internship provider). To learn about the internship application process, please visit the MyLSBU Study Abroad pages.
To complete an internship at LSBU you will have to obtain a Tier 4 visa. For more information about visa application see our visas page.
