What Students Say:

"The time I spent at the LSBU was very fruitful and this experience really met – if not exceeded – all my expectations. Having already been a student I could compare LSBU to other higher education institutions. I must say LSBU has a really hands-on, fully practical approach to teaching the creative skills and it was the basis of my entire course. Having support from extremely helpful teaching staff also made a difference. I felt I could always count on my course director and the technical demonstrators and they always encouraged me to try to push my skills forward.”
