I had a great time studying at London South Bank University. During my time studying I had the chance to go to China for a placement which was a great opportunity given by the Univeristy. My student life experience was simply amazing and I met some great people and made friends for life.Not only have the lectures and seminars been resourceful and well-organised the student life experience is not lacking anything either. It is an allround great experience to study at LSBU. I can only encourage everybody to come and attend an open day and find out what this univeristy has to offer. I promise you you will be surprised about the resources and facilities. As I m a european student I also loved the fact that this univeristy has such a variety of different people from all over the world. show less

The ennrolling process was a cold experience. The university seem more interested in money than people though they did give me ALF fund small change when I applied. sometimes lecturers didnt turn up and at times seemed sarcastic and cold. true friendship etc was never encouraged between students only superficiality. there was always a feeling of intimidation from staff and an unfriendly atmosphere. not enough was done to crush racism and prejudice and many students told me they felt victimised by staff. there was also a sense of injustice about the entire system there and would discourage anyone from enrolling there until severe changes are made. show less
