Morley College and LSBU strengthen educational ties

Morley College London and London South Bank University (LSBU) and have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to improve education opportunities for Londoners, in particular those local to the University and College in Lambeth and Southwark.

The MOU, signed by Morley College Principal, Dr Andrew Gower and LSBU’s Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Pat Bailey cements a three-year commitment from both parties to build on their mutual interest to develop opportunities in the community and local area.

In particular the MOU aims to further strengthen the existing relationship between the two institutions by:

  • creating scholarship, learning, teaching and cultural experiences for people aged 17 and over
  • enhancing profile and engagement levels within the local community through joint activities
  • assisting and supporting current students to develop their skills
  • creating extramural learning opportunities for LSBU students in the arts and languages
  • supporting students’ transition into higher education and degree apprenticeships.

Both Morley College and LSBU will benefit from shared resources and facilities, combined networks and links to industry, and a joint vision for providing education to the people of south London.

The brilliant thing about LSBU and Morley is that we have a common mission to serve the community.

Professor Bailey

Professor Bailey continued, “This MOU will mean we can work together to provide the local area with valuable and focused events, which will provide more opportunities for people to come through as learners.

“The MOU will also allow students at LSBU to identify additional education opportunities at Morley, and vice versa.

“This is a very exciting time for both institutions and is just the beginning of a whole series of community and student-focused activities over the coming years.”

Dr Gower said, “We’re delighted to sign the MOU between LSBU and Morley College London.”

With a shared commitment to high-quality, local learning for Londoners, this collaboration will create exciting new opportunities for people in Lambeth, Southwark and beyond.
