Collaborations and partnerships

Our students can study for qualifications at our partner colleges in the UK and abroad

Through our academic partnerships in the UK and overseas we offer a diverse range of courses in some inspiring locations. These important partnerships build on the existing expertise found at LSBU and give our students an extra enriching dimension to their studies.

In the UK the School of The Built Environment and Architecture partners with several colleges:

LSBU also works closely with more local schools and colleges. This relationship ensures we align our outreach and recruitment activities with the mission of these institutions to ensure their students make well informed and appropriate decisions about their future. We organise activities and projects for young people that encourage their participation in higher education. We also support older students as they go through the process of applying to LSBU and help them and others who may be the first in their families to come to university make the transition to student life.

International partners

Another key partner is the British University in Egypt, where LSBU validates a number of programmes including BEng (Hons) Construction Engineering and Management, BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering and BSc (Hons) Architectural Engineering.

Another key partner is the Applied Sciences University Bahrain, where LSBU validates a number of programmes including BEng (Hons) Architectural Design Engineering and BEng (Hons) Civil and Construction Engineering.

Another new partnership is with Chongqing Jiaotong University in China, which will see their students completing their final year at LSBU and LSBU academics teaching in China.

We’re also working with The Federal University of Technology Akure in Nigeria to organise academic exchanges, including 2016’s international conference on 21st century human habitat.

Architecture students and staff have been invited to take part in Polyark 4, an international collaborative design project operated by RIBA. Architecture academics form part of international validation panels, reviewing academic standards at a wide variety of schools.
