Our family

We've established a family of like-minded education providers providing better access to both further and higher education

For 125 years we've provided professional and technical education for the people and businesses of south London. However, education today is more complex than ever before and this mission can no longer be best achieved by one organisation alone.

So we've established a new family of like-minded specialist education providers, offering learners the opportunity to transfer between technical, vocational and academic pathways and creating clear progression routes into and through the middle tier of highly skilled technical and professional roles.

The LSBU family consists of South Bank University Academy of Engineering, South Bank University Engineering UTC, LSBU and South Bank University Enterprises Ltd.
