LSBU Future Global Graduate Awards

In recognition of the continued commitment of international students to London South Bank University we are proud to launch the LSBU Future Global Graduate Awards.

The awards are given in the form of a tuition fee discount to international students on acceptance of their offer and receipt of their deposit by a set deadline. Students may only accept one of the awards.

The Vice-Chancellor’s International Merit Award

The Vice Chancellor’s International Merit Award recognises outstanding academic achievement of students obtaining grades equivalent to AAB and above at UK A-level (approximately 75% or above in other international school leaving certificates) and comprises an award of £2,000 for each academic year.

The Global Success Scholarship

The second award, The Global Success Scholarship, is worth up to £4,000 and awarded to international students to provide them a springboard to kickstart their global career at LSBU, meaning the practical career-focussed courses provide even greater value.
