Programmes for universities

LSE Custom Programmes provides customised education experiences at undergraduate, graduate and executive levels.

The LSE staff that we interacted with were absolutely second to none. We learned not what to think, but how to think

We work with numerous education providers, such as universities, business schools and private foundations. We provide customised programmes for undergraduates, graduates and executives to enrich their studies, as part of a study tour at LSE.
