About London South Bank University
While much has changed, our original mission – to promote ‘…the industrial skill, general knowledge, health and well-being of young men and women’ and to provide employers with a highly skilled workforce – remains remarkably similar today.
Our current students, wherever they come from and whatever their goals and aspirations, can look forward to an education that develops them both academically and personally, reflects the needs of business and society and equips them for rewarding future careers
LSBU has focused on providing professional opportunity for all who can benefit for well over a century Established as the Borough Polytechnic Institute in 1892, the original aim of London South Bank University (LSBU) was 'to promote the industrial skill, general knowledge, health and well-being of young men and women', which remains remarkably similar today.
Our continuous focus on vocational education and professional opportunity allows us to produce graduates who can meet the challenges of today's workplace. We constantly use our links with industry to build knowledge that ensures our course content, facilities and equipment recreated the demands of the 21st century workplace. By doing this we strongly support our claim of being a leading applied university..
