Welcome from the Executive Dean

Just like our students, the academic staff members at GSM London come from a diverse range of backgrounds and therefore, they bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the classroom. Meet our Faculty>

Many staff members have spent years working in industry, others are involved in leading-edge academic research, and some offer extensive experience in both areas. What they all share is a passion for education and a determination to ensure that every student fulfils their potential, in the classroom and beyond.

Key to this is GSM London’s progressive, inclusive and highly supportive approach to teaching.  We understand that every student has different needs and abilities, so traditional lecture-based learning is complemented with an innovative strengths-based approach. This identifies students’ natural abilities and builds on these innate skills to create confident learners.

Furthermore, we support this strengths-based philosophy with active learning methods: hands-on exercises and collaborative, team-based tasks that engage and inspire students, in a way that more formal teaching methods may not.

We also offer a Foundation Year Programme for students, who perhaps do not have the appropriate academic qualifications, or have been away from education for some time. This programme enables them to develop the study skills needed, to embark on a degree programme with total confidence.

Finally, we place enormous emphasis on employability and entrepreneurship. Therefore, all our degree programmes feature practical, career-focused learning opportunities, while resources such as the Formation Zone are available, to help enterprising students to develop their own business ideas. At GSM London, everything we do is designed to help students to achieve real-world success.

For us, it’s all about unlocking potential. That’s why we offer our Foundation Year programme, which lets you access higher education even if you have no formal qualifications or haven’t studied for years.
Liz Larner
Dean of Education and Development
Active learning methods are a key part of our strengths-based approach – anything from role playing exercises to group projects like making a video. They’re a great way to engage our students and build their confidence.
