General Course

The International History Department welcomes students registered for the LSE General Course programme and admits approximately thirty each year.

General Course students take four courses in one year, at least one of which must be within the Department. For a full list of the Department courses, consult the Undergraduate Course Guides.

General Course students are advised that HY3** level courses are best suited to those with a strong history background. If you are in any doubt about whether you have a sufficient grounding in historical methodology to follow one of these courses, please consult the course coordinator concerned.

Please note: It is not possible for General Course students to transfer to our degree programmes after completing their General Course year.
