Academic direction for these courses is provided by Lead College – London School of Economics and Political Science.

LSE welcomes applications from International Students for entry into the second year of one of its degree courses. Students should apply through UCAS (www.ucas.co.uk), stating that they are applying for second year entry. A place is not automatic, however, and you would need to do very well in your examinations in order to be considered. You should also be aware that LSE has a limited number of places available and competition will be strong. LSE does not accept students into the third year of any of its courses.

It may be possible to take one or more of our units from a full programme and study them individually as short courses. If you successfully complete the assessment for a short course, you will receive a University of London transcript. A transcript of the grades achieved is available upon request. Please note that credits obtained from units cannot count towards a degree as a student has to be fully enrolled in a degree program for credits to be recognized.
