Hello and welcome to London South Bank University! We are so glad you are thinking of joining us to study in September.


The 'Get Ahead' programme is designed to introduce you to the information and skills that you will need to succeed when you start your course at LSBU. We'll also be signposting the support, services and people that will be available to help you throughout your university journey.

The 3 day Get Ahead event includes sessions delivered by: 

  • Skills for Learning (Academic/Study skills support)
  • Information Skills Librarians (Library support)
  • Digital Skills Trainers
  • Mental Health and Wellbeing Advisors
  • Student Services Advisors

Come to as many or as few sessions as you like - all will be delivered live but remotely using Microsoft Teams (see far right of this page for more details).

View the sessions in the workshop calendar below and explore the tab pages along the top of this guide to find recordings of the live sessions, supplementary information and key contact details for different teams.

Join us on Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a video conferencing tool that allows people to meet online, wherever you are in the world. In the past year, we have used it to deliver a lot of teaching at LSBU! 

If you have not used Teams before, check out the instruction documents below. If you are having trouble, please email and let us know you are booked onto a Get Ahead session.
