Accreditation and recognition

Today we are the university of choice for many students entering the architecture and construction industries throughout the UK and much of the world. We have always been at the forefront of surveying. We have awarded the first Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) professionally accredited degrees and diplomas and have been running our Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) accredited degrees in Construction Management for almost 40 years.

Many employers actively seek graduates holding accredited degrees. Accreditations are a mark of quality assurance and professional relevance, which is why it's highly relevant that all construction, property and surveying degrees at LSBU are accredited or developed in partnership with all the leading professional accrediting bodies.

The University's location in the heart of central London is a major asset for all our students. Close to the banking and commercial centres, next-door to the city's Southbank and on the doorstep of the £1.5 billion 55-acre Elephant and Castle and Borough re-development area, this forms a rich ground for applied project work.

Construction, property and surveying students benefit from our well-placed and considered investment which brings students access to highly specialist equipment. For example, our construction laboratory includes the only tensometer in London that measures material strength in very high detail.
