Widening participation

The Outreach and Widening Participation Team is passionate about breaking down barriers to study

We work to provide students with targeted support that suits their needs. We can visit your college to talk to staff about our Student Services or meet with your students and discuss the details of applying to university. We aim to provide a reassuring voice: "We’re with you all the way!"

We know that life as a student can be stressful. LSBU’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Team will be there to support students' health and emotional wellbeing. We are happy to talk to you and your students about the services we offer.

BME females into STEM

STEM skills gap is a current educational challenge. Women are significantly underrepresented in STEM-related career fields. We aim to raise awareness of STEM careers to female learners and provide them with role models of BME females in STEM careers.

Care Experienced

We support Care Experienced Students on their journey, providing support specific to the application process.

If you contact us directly, we'll break down the entire application process, giving a timeline of deadlines and helping you to find the right course for you.

Mature learners

It’s never to late to join LSBU. In fact, more than 50% of LSBU students are over the age of 25, and over 30% of LSBU students joined LSBU after the age of 30. We take into account alternative qualifications and can consider your work experience.  Please feel free to contact our Course Enquiries team for more information.  Why not visit us; join our next Open Day.

If you are studying towards an Access to Higher Education Diploma, LSBU has a Partnership Agreement for students at an OCN London College; we can provide you with a range of admission and progression benefits.  We also offer specific activities for students who require additional support when applying to university.  To find out more please have a look at our OCN Partnership Agreement (PDF File 384 KB).

Student health and wellbeing

We know that life as a student can sometimes be stressful. LSBU’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Team will be there to support students physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing; they are all connected and equally important.

Our designated team are happy to talk to you and your students about the service at LSBU.

Students with disabilities and dyslexia

We understand that every individual is different and that each person’s disability can affect them in different ways. This is why we work closely with the University’s Disability and Dyslexic Support Team to ensure we provide appropriate advice and guidance for each individual.

If a student has already made an application to the University, we advise them to contact our Disability and Dyslexia Support Team.
