Get Ahead 2023: How to use this guide

Hello and welcome to London South Bank University! We are so glad you are 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 comprehensive programme will feature sessions from LSBU's Academic Skills Tutors, Digital Skills Trainers, Information Skills Librarians and Mental Health & Wellbeing Advisors.

We will be running this event, online, for one week in September:

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.
