Where to live if on a child nursing course at LSBU

Hi, Im due to start the child nursing course at LSBU in september 2010 and am looking for somewhere to live. I have emailed SWAN housing regarding their accomodation and am awaiting the reply. Does anyone know the best place to live with regard to placement proximity and parking a car as i would ideally like to bring mine. Which of the uni accomodation is the best placed for nursing students? Do the majority of students go for the uni accomodation or through swan housing or private (if so any ideal areas?). Would be better if i went somewhere with nursing students so that everyone understands the shift patterns and demands of the course. Cant wait to start!! Any suggestions appreciated, thank you!

Nursing at LSBU.

Im an Adult Branch Student Nurse at LSBU.

Kings is fine, dont listen to all the guff about "The LSBU Degree is only as hard as the Kings Diploma" as thats crock - the NMC will accept your pass no matter what Uni its from, and a Dip or a Degree wont matter - you all come out the same staff nurse at the end.

KCL has a reputation of being an old, well established Uni, and so has the rap to go with that (posh may be a word you'd like to use!) LSBU is a realativley new Uni, but none of that matters at all when it comes to nursing - its all about the quality of your tutors, and the Trust where most of your placements are.

For Childrens nursing definatley go to LSBU - They have Great Ormond Street Childrens Hospital as their main host trust for child branch students, KCL does not.

Uni is alright

I have known a couple of people who work at the Uni. The Uni is good, but the area is a bit dodgy. A car in London is not at all advisable!

Reply from South Bank


I am a research student here at London South Bank University. Welcome to joining us. Here it is quite international and the main campus is situated near Elephant and Castle, which is not a safe place. Generally it is okay. Actually there is no real campus as you expect, because this is in London. Buying a car sounds nice, but you have to pay a lot for the car parking. Considering the easy and 24-hour public transportation here. I do suggest you come and check before you make a decsion to buy a car. There are some American students here, but not much. Al the best wishes and luck to you. If you like to hear more, please email

How is it there regarding having a car (I enjoy driving more than most)? Are there many Americans in that area? And what is safetly like?

Thank you very much.
