International student - MSc in Construction Project Management. LSBU have a centrally located campus. Their applications process (when I applied) was good and fairly quick. The enrolment process was badly managed, badly communicated and incredibly frustrating. The facilities are terrible, classrooms poorly heated and awful. Assuming you can find one, the bathrooms are badly maintained and dirty. The wayfinding and pathways to get around the campus are convoluted, impractical, frustrating and difficult. The library is dreadful. Poor DDA, poor facilities (those unclean toilets again), awful student study spaces, ill-equipped print rooms and too few catalogues. The library website is even worse, clearly designed by people who have never heard the phrase 'user experience'. The teaching staff are not particularly driven, nor is my cohort. Assessment seems arbitrary and slap dash. Strap in for a frustrating ride.
I don't know where to begin with this Uni, I studied Business for two years with them as a part time student. The only good thing about this Uni is the location. The staff are disorganised, the toilets are never clean, and there IT infrastructure and support is a joke! Although I met a couple of nice teachers along the way, this Uni is so badly organised that it really should not offer part time study. I wouldn't recommend this Uni to my worst enemy. There are other Unis that offer way better services for less money!
As with everything, there's ups and downs. The uni is quite good for subjects like engineering, health and social care/ nursing etc. but may be lacking in some other areas. They have great emphasis on practicals, we did engineering labs almost every week, and most lecturers have worked in industry. The careers advice is good, they have a 'job shop' and business/ entrpreneurs hub' which helps student startups with office space and mentoring.
I did my first degree in Engineering and few years later I returned to do a masters degree. The quality of education is great, the facilities are well maintained and lecturers are helpful. It’s true that the majority of lecturers are foreign but I must admit they are bright scientists from advanced industrial countries such as China, Japan, Iran, Russia and Malaysia. Some were from Cambridge University. Degrees are as good as you invest in them, so the tutors give students the opportunity to learn to pass and also learn to excell hence minimum expectations are always clear and it’s up to the student to exceed expectations. I graduated with First Class and got a higher merit for my masters. I excelled in the industry being equipped with everything they taught me. Couple of years later, I was granted a full scholarship for PhD in a top university after competing with 3000 students. London Southbank gives you freedom to evolve based on your capacity, time and effort.
Centrally located in London, but other than that it's not a great university. I'm sure it's good for subjects like Nursing which it ranks highly, but on the more academic subjects you are let down by the calibre of students (no discipline or drive) and a 'do the minimum' type attitude that comes from staff and students. You are not set up to succeed.
I was very excited to go to Uni as a mature student, I attended Digital Film and Video, BA. Now called Film Practice. I was very disappointed with this course. I found LSBU to be badly organised. In 3 years I Iearned very little at Uni. Some tutors were very unhelpful, I learned more from other students, including editing than I learned from the tutors. Many students said they had learned more at college. They arranged collaborations with other Uni's and Depts which they did not oversee, leading to very stressful situations. Boasted of connections with The London Studios but no evidence of it ever seen. Industry speakers promised but only a couple came in at the end, after class complained. They did supply some internship opportunities after graduation but overall I would not recommend LSBU.
Has the feel that they tried to make it modern but still feels very outdated, Over 10+ people I know have already dropped out from their course, if you check the stats then you know not to come to this uni, not even a uni feeling more like a relaxed college.
Loved my three years here, campus is really central you couldn't be more in the middle of everything. The halls are amazingly priced for London rental and the transport links are amazing buses to all over, every few minutes and there are Northern and Bakerloo line stations all over the area. The SU are great and there's always events going on in the SU bar, and there's a good number of coffee /food stops all over campus. The only negatives from my experience were (1) the organisation of course works, deadlines and feedback - but theses are a subject or lecturer based issues. And (2) the societies; there's a great number of sports available and there's the gs like LGBT, subject and political/religious groups but we didn't seem to have any 'fun/silly' societies like Real Ale, Harry Potter or Gaming; so the societies available might not appeal to everyone but you are in London so chances are there's something outside of the Uni for you.
