How can I submit an application?

If you are an overseas student (and a national of a country outside the EU) or an EU national that does not have settled status, you can complete the LSBU Online Application Form. It is very important to upload all the necessary supporting documents as they are required to process your application.

You will be able to make 1 application and choose up to 2 courses to apply to.

Alternative application systems

If your course is not listed in our LSBU Online Application System you can apply via the following national application services:

  • International undergraduate students (full-time and part-time) can apply via UCAS.

What happens next?

Once you have submitted your online application you will receive an email confirming that it has been successfully received and that your application is being checked by our International Admissions Team.

Your application will be reviewed by an International Admissions Officer and you will then receive an email stating your ID number to be used for any questions you may have about the status of your application.

Receiving a decision

The International Admissions Team will contact you once a decision has been made or if further information is required.

The decision will be made on the standard entry criteria for the course you have applied for (in accordance with our Admissions Policy) but we will also take into account your immigration history if you require a Student Sponsor visa.
