As London South Bank University (LSBU) celebrates 125 years of assisting students to become what they want to be, the University’s contribution to higher education has been recognised in Parliament.
Carshalton and Wallington MP Tom Brake supported an Early Day Motion to congratulate the University on the significant milestone and what has been achieved in the past 125 years.
The motion recognised LSBU’s leading role in providing access to high quality professional and technical education for people and employers and significant achievements in generating world-leading applied research with businesses.
The university was commended on its position as a pillar of the south London community transforming lives, businesses and communities for the better.
Tom Brake said:
“In the past year alone, more than 100 students from the Carshalton and Wallington area have chosen London South Bank University as the place to help them lay the foundations for a successful future.
“Over the years, London South Bank University’s contribution to the Carshalton and Wallington area has been outstanding, and no doubt the University will continue to be an important part of our community in the future, helping our young people to become what they want to be.”
LSBU Chief Operating Officer Ian Mehrtens said as Entrepreneurial University of the Year, the University had ambitious plans for the future.
“Our aim is to provide the very best student experience, deliver real world impact through our research and transform the campus for learning in the 21st Century,” Mr Mehrtens said.
“By 2020, LSBU aims to be London’s top modern university and it is great to know we have the support of our local MPs in reaching that goal.”
