The university is okay but as it isn’t a campus university it really does lack the whole university experience kind of feeling. The SU is the only place you can really hang out and it’s not the biggest but it still works! I had barley any lectures throughout my course which I was quite disappointed in (giving how much I paid) and I do think that there are better unis out there!

There is an infinite amount of support from the lecturers as well as the seminar tutors of the module that it is pretty impossible not to fail anything with their help.

The university is a good for its location. I have met loads of nice people and made really good friends fue to the university but the course is not good at all. The photography course is one of the worst in London, it’s also the only one that doesn’t have a dark room facility and promotes being all digital like it’s the best thing. The course has no direction and I don’t feel like I have learnt enough. I am not confident enough to go out in the world and work in photography even though the university promotes being one of the best for graduate jobs and preparing you for “life”.

I do not live on campus so I cannot comment on that. I am studying Children's Nursing, the facilities are great and the lecturer's are beyond helpful, you can tell that they have a strong passion for helping students succeed.

Location is great cause it’s in the heart of central London therefore there’s always lots to do, places to go and people see!

First living in London but it's s very pleasant location with everything local from 2 Tescos a Sainsbury and a 24 hour convenience store within walking distance. The learning is good with all lectures uploading lectures on moodle apart from one lecturer.

I study film practice. The course is engaging and the lecturers are professionals in their field which helps in class. I don't think there are enough contact hours and sometimes hiring kit was difficult as it's spread over three years.

Theres nothing that warrants a thorough complaint, could be quite hard if you're from a poorer background and not from the UK.

The university is located in a excellent location where the trains are and buses are running all the time efficiently. In my opinion south bank is a very good university because of the facilities they provide for the course, student union team are great and the employability team is great too.

Right in the heart of London, surrounded by every famous land mark and an easy walk or trip to everywhere else LSBU is in the perfect location for the creative. The uni is friendly, diverse and inclusive and full of real life opportunities. Lecturers can be looked up to as creatives doing well in their respective fields even outside of uni. The student union is constantly pulling new events to include everyone and keep things exciting. The facilities are top knotch especially for film and drama students with equipment and studios readily available to all.

the uni is ok nothing speical but it gets the job done. the courses are alright, luckly easier than other univercitys. lectures are good but the only real bad things about the uni is the lack of activitys and socitys as alot of socitys tend to be socitys that have died the previous year but still kept in the univericty website to look like the univercity has many socities

The campus isn’t really a campus it is just a couple of buildings. My course which is diagnostic radiography is pretty good in comparison to other unis. Have really had much experience of the student union, the services for dyslexia is pretty good and do offer a lot of support if you want it.

It's quite a small campus but has everything you need. Theres a lot of space for students to study! However, the course don't seem the greatest in comparison to other universities.

Campus is nice and welcoming. The buildings are big and there’s some nice shops. They could have more spaces for work in libraries - also if they had plug sockets underneath tables in lectures.

Good facilities, brilliant library. Friendly staff. Course is interesting however uni could be more organised regarding placements

If I'm honest the university itself isn't too bad, some of the buildings are a maze and some aren't great for Wi-Fi but overall it isn't too bad. I think it depends on the course you are doing and the member of staff in that sector as I have found in the healthcare sector a lot of great lecturers have left and then others have to job of taking over all of the lectures without the expertise as the original lecturer and sometimes the support is therefore lax.

I like the constant communication between students and lecturers, it makes it so much easier to bring up any issues with the course work. The course content is always engaging and encourages lots of participation, which I find makes it easier to learn and understand new concepts.

Good lecture theatres big enough to accommodate all of my course of 200+ nurses. Student union something always going on. Good clinical skills facilities

Campus is pretty small, food on campus is pretty expensive and not worth it. The gym is basic like it’s inconvenient as well. The printing is expensive. The learning resource centre is really good apart from the group work area, it’s always packed and loud which is annoying. The library is dull but has what you need but most of the time you’d just want to get out. Lived in mclaren house. It’s so noisy because of the first years.

Brilliant location, cheap halls, facilities could be better but are good enough for me to get all my projects done, my course is fun and my lecturers are very supportive and flexible. There is a dedicated room on the student center for job hunting. The student base is as diverse as you will find with many mature and international students mixed in with the local students

The Campus feels like a School/college Keyworth and K2 buildings are great and make you feel like a university Uni have too many mature students which makes it feel like colleges Lecture theatres are reasonably sized My experience has been great, especially with the Law department. One of the best in the U.K. according to Guardian and I feel like it is Union are very engaging Opportunity to meet a lot of different people especially international
