We're a university that puts its students first and have been doing so for over a hundred years. Our central location is great for seeing all that London has to offer and our strong employer links keep our course content highly relevant. Our students are our customers and their achievements and satisfaction are paramount to us. So we continually develop and improve a truly integrated framework of student support that works across and between faculties. Get to know us and you'll see why we're the university of choice for over 25,000 students.
We give our students the talent to meet workplace needs to improve their career progression. Course content sees students carry out cutting-edge radiography examinations; design for international rugby league teams; start their own theatre company; create innovative products like the Tyligo or turn a hobby into a career. We won the bid to be the only London university to offer government staff both the Masters in Business Administration (MBA) and Masters in Public Administration (MPA).
We're always interested in finding out what our students think of their LSBU experience. The university was recently nominated for a top award for our pioneering Student Shadowing Scheme, which offers academics and staff the opportunity to experience the life of a modern University student first-hand.
As part of our ongoing campus developments, we created improved learning facilities and staff offices in our highly innovative K2 building, which was built with sustainability very much in mind. In the next wave of development, our brand new Student Centre opened late 2012 and our Enterprise Centre is set to open later this year. Find out more about our campus developments. Our facilities fully support all of our courses. Whether students spend time in our research and skills laboratories, workshops, media centre, theatre, library or Learning Resources Centre the appropriate technologies and expert support offer a complete experience.
Our staff greatly enhance our students' success. Their well-deserved reputation for creating personalised support, helps students identify and develop their achievements through individual and group tutorials, seminars and workshops. The university is also committed to help students with any financial, emotional and cultural challenges.
