Posted On May 30, 2017
Home for more than 2000 international students originary from over 130 countries, London South Bank University (LSBU) has been teaching students for over 120 years, shaping brightly their future. Recently, LSBU was awarded the “Entrepreneurial University of the Year” at the Times Higher Education Awards confirming its high status among other universities from London. In 2010, LSBU received the highest possible rating for the quality of the education provided so far. Summing up, LSBU is the best place for students to create a path towards success.
LSBU is currently offering diversified scholarships and discounts for international students as it follows: fee-discounts for LSBU alumni, Nationality Scholarships, and a 5% discount for the early payment of tuition fees. Because LSBU believes that education is a powerful resource which should be granted for everyone no matter their religious, cultural, social, economical, and political status, has committed over £1m in financial support. This financial support goes to well-qualified international students meeting their study costs.
A particular scholarship which was initiated to meet the academic needs of international students is the Vice Chancellor’s International Excellence Scholarship.
