The semester and academic year curricula offer courses and internships. Courses are taught at London South Bank University (LSBU). Internships are organized at various companies, NGOs, and humanitarian organizations. Students can enroll in a maximum of 4 courses, or 3 courses plus an internship per semester. Students must select at least 2 courses from the same LSBU School: Arts & Creative Industries (ACI), Applied Science & Psychology (ASP), Built Environment & Architecture (BEA), Business (BUS), Engineering (ENG), School of Health & Social Care (HSC), or Law & Social Sciences (LSS). Most courses and internships are the equivalent of 3 to 4-semester credits in the USA.
The term “module” in the U.K. means “course” in the U.S.A.; The term “module guide” in the U.K. means “syllabus” in the U.S.A.
You can search the LSBU Module Directory for specific modules (courses), or
You can filter the module list by:
LSBU School and/or Subject – We recommend that you do not limit the course list by ticking specific Schools and Subjects. Universities in the UK and USA organize their academic departments/units differently. For this reason, you should look for courses in all of the LSBU Schools and Subjects.
Semester – Tick Semester 1 for Fall; tick Semester 2 for Spring.
UK Level – You may select any of the levels. We suggest you do not tick any boxes.
Core or Optional – Leave this criteria un-ticked. It does not have relevance for study abroad students
Assessment Type – Leave this criteria un-ticked. It does not have relevance for study abroad students.
Academic Year – Select the AY when you plan to study abroad. If your desired AY is not available, select the previous year and check back periodically for updates.
Make sure to select Level 4, 5, and 6 modules. Do NOT select Level 7 modules because these are at the Graduate level. The module level is specified in the course number/code. For example, the course number/code for International Marketing Experience is MMP_7_SIM. The _7_ indicates that this is a Level 7 module.
Syllabi are available for download in Dropbox folders for Fall (Semester 1) and Spring (Semester 2). Syllabi (called Module Guides in the UK) are organized by LSBU School. If you are unable to find a syllabus in the Dropbox folders, check the Course/Syllabus Reference section below. If the syllabus is not in the Course/Syllabus Reference section, contact KEI and we will request the syllabus from LSBU.

Internships allow students to learn from practical experiences not attainable in a classroom setting. Internships require a commitment of 120 to 240 hours. Placement is based on professional interests and availability. Previous placements include Lloyd’s TSB, Accenture Plc, Air France, Working Titles Films, and BMW. Actual placement maybe with a different organization.
Positions are available in the following professional fields.
Fashion (design, styling, etc.)
Sports (science, management)
Internships are organized by KEI in cooperation with Anglo Educational Services. Students earn 3 to 6 credits for the internship, depending on completed hours. An internship fee of $1,800 will be added to the KEI program fee. Students participating in an internship can take a maximum of 3 courses at LSBU.
Credit and transcript for courses are awarded by London South Bank University (accredited in UK). Credit ad transcript for the internship is awarded by KEI and Lincoln University of Pennsylvania (accredited in USA).
