All of our courses are accredited or developed by leading professional bodies. In the latest Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 90% of our postgraduate students said they were working or in further study within six months of graduating from LSBU. We offer a range of flexible study options, in state-of-the-art teaching facilities and support student funding for our full and part-time students with various financial opportunities. Here are some of our affiliations:
"Of all the universities I applied to, LSBU was the most approachable and supportive. I liked that it offered a very practical course, including working on case studies based on real life scenarios. We were motivated to get in touch with professionals in the industry for help which was great for job hunting. Just one week after I handed in my dissertation I found my first job at a digital marketing agency."
– Leonardo Cavalcanti, MSc International Marketing
LSBU's scholarships offer a range of fee discounts and our alumni discounts for postgraduate study help recent LSBU graduates take a postgraduate course here. With the majority of postgraduates being self funded, eligible students receive flexible payment options to help spread the cost of their studies and can receive Government initiatives, such as Career Development Loans and childcare benefits. Details about funding opportunities from research councils, educational trusts and charities plus employer sponsorship funding options are on the LSBU website.
We have a proven track record of helping businesses train their employees, focusing on developing professional skills. Most of our sponsored students study part time. We're expert in providing relevant training for the modern market and our flexible approach ensures our delivery suits workplace needs. Our courses are kept up to date by highly qualified staff who maintain strong links with employers, professional bodies and public and private sector enterprises.

The supervision quality and training of our research degree students is highly important to us. Research students discuss their work in monitored one-to-one sessions with their supervisor. A postgraduate course can be a stepping stone to doctoral research, helping you develop valuable technical skills and the ability to critically analyse others' work.

Our main campus is in the heart of London, just over the river from the city's major commercial sector and legal centres. Sitting on a major public transportation hub, we're easy to reach and unlike many sprawling city centre universities, our major campus buildings are compactly located – see our map.
Whatever the course, we have the facilities to fully support it. Whether our students are in our research and skills laboratories, workshops, media centre, theatre, library or Learning Resources Centre we offer them the appropriate technologies and expert support to complete their experience. We're committed to first-class facilities and have already invested £50m in student buildings and learning spaces over the last few years. We're continuing these campus developments by opening our Student Centre in September 2012 and Enterprise Centre in 2013.
