The semester and academic year curriculum offers 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 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.
TABS at the bottom of the Course Offerings file allow you to switch between the six LSBU schools and departments.
Course titles are listed under the UNIT column of the Course Offerings file.
Course descriptions are listed under the DESCRIPTION column. You may have to move the lower border of the description cell to view the entire description.
The SEMESTER column indicates when courses are offered: 1 means Fall semester; 2 means Spring semester; B means both semesters.
Disregard the LEVEL and CREDIT columns as they do not apply to study abroad students.
Syllabi for Fall (Semester 1) and Spring (Semester 2) are organized by department within each LSBU School. Click on the department to view courses and syllabi. Syllabi for the most commonly requested courses are linked to course titles. Contact KEI to request syllabi for additional courses.
