  • Guaranteed conditional places on many degree courses through a progression agreement for LBTS6 students who apply to Kings College and  London South Bank University
  • A mentoring scheme across a number of businesses and Industries so that you will benefit from a long term mentor relationship with someone directly linked to your future ambitions.
