University advert on the tube

Further evidence that British universities are at least semi-trading in semi-markets:


It's an advert in the tube, meaning (for non-Londoners) the London Underground railway. A bit blurry I'm afraid. Taken on the move. But you can just about make out that it's London South Bank University, and that this is their website.

Also a sign is the way they have rebranded themselves from being South Bank University, London to London South Bank University.

...and I forgot to add means new e-mail addresses for everyone!

I've been on New York City subway trains where it seems as if half of the advertisements were for various schools and colleges.

Yes, much public transport in Australia is swathed with advertising for various universities.

Actually, I've seen a fair amount of adverts for universities on the Tube over the last few years. I've had the "Ooh, didn't know that one even existed" moment many times. Good signs.

Thanks for all these comments people.

I normally wouldn't bother to say such a thing, but my comments notification system has been behaving oddly, and this is part of checking it out.
