At LSE, we’re known for our excellent research in the social sciences. We’ve produced 16 Nobel Prize winners, and in the last Research Assessment Exercise we had the highest percentage of world-leading research of any UK university.
But we don’t rest on our reputation. We work to join – and shape – the global debate. We research and teach, we publish, appear in the media, blog and tweet.
Our future success will be built on the people who continue this work, pursuing our motto ‘rerum cognoscere causas’ – to know the causes of things. People from around the world who share our values: excellence, intellectual freedom, engagement and diversity.
Join LSE and you’ll find yourself in an exceptional university, at the heart of an exceptional city. Above all, you’ll be able to make a difference.
