The admission committee reviews all applications and offers a place to those candidates with sufficient research potential.
Applicants who have questions about their eligibility for applying to research programmes at the LSE should consult the LSE Minimum Entry Requirements and the programme-specific page for the programme to which they intend to apply. Meeting the minimum requirements is not a guarantee of admission. In fact, most successful candidates exceed one or more of the requirements.
Also see additional information for international students.
We regret that we cannot provide any further information or comment on an individual's chances of admission prior to receiving a complete formal application. The committee will make their decision based on all the information submitted with the application, which should be submitted online to the central Graduate Admissions Office.
