I have seen all sorts of review about LSBU and will give my honest 50 cents. I graduated from the Uni from the Masters program at the School of Communications Engineering and built environment in 2009. To be honest it was not an easy task. LSBU may be rated low . Entry might seem easy but graduating without hardwork is not possible, the reason why lots of people drop out. It's harder for international students who may need to work and study. They have all the facilities you need. If you put in the right work and time, there is so much to learn and discover at LSBU. I learnt from the likes of Prof.Larrissa Fradkin,Dr.Perry Xiao, Dr.Benznov Goran, Dr.Murkejee to mention a few. After my studies there, I got a job at Glaxo Smithkline in Stevenage that has taken me around the world and currently in Canada. If you are lazy and put no effort, you just wont graduate. If you are committed and willing, you will for sure graduate and at least with a merit. And honestly if you master your subject, there's just about no job you wont get.
