How many hours do I have to study?
In addition to your lessons, we would recommend five or six hours a day of private study. Pre-reading is required for all seminars and lectures. In addition, you may be required to prepare topics or presentations related to the seminar themes.
What is the format of the programme?
You will attend several LSE master's-level lectures on European Political Economy and Innovation. You will need to read for each course. In addition, you will have a minimum of two seminars with the course teacher, requiring in-depth preparation for discussion.
You will also have a weekly seminar with the Academic Coordinator, who will set readings and topics. This will also provide a forum to discuss your individual objectives and required assessments.
You will attend a series of guest lectures and public lectures.
How will the course be assessed?
The course will be assessed via one written essay of 2,000 words, a book review of 800 words and two ten-minute oral presentations. All documents need to be submitted via Moodle before 5pm on the agreed deadline.
All successful participants will receive an LSE Custom Programmes Certificate at the end of the course.
What if I have a problem?
The Academic Coordinator will act as your teaching mentor and is your first port of call if you have any difficulty with a topic or a class. They will help you overcome any issues and may refer you to extra lessons or readings.
