London South Bank University Facts

  • Founded as the Borough Polytechnic Institute in 1892, the institution is located in the London Borough of Southwark and is among the five largest universities in the city.
  • The institution has had several different names but it did not become known as the London South Bank University (LSBU) until a century after it was originally founded, when the British government enacted the Further and Higher Education Act of 1992, granting full university status to all polytechnic institutions.
  • In 2015 the LSBU infrastructure was refined and today there are seven academic schools, namely the School of Applied Sciences, the School of Arts and Creative Industries, the School of The Built Environment and Architecture, the School of Business, the School of Engineering, the School of Health and Social Care, and the School of Law and Social Sciences.
