LSE is currently remodelling the structure of its academic year to improve students’ teaching and learning experiences.  Under the new model the Michaelmas and Lent Terms will each be a week longer, and the Summer Term will be three weeks shorter.  This means that the School’s teaching terms will be longer, the summer examination session will be shorter and the academic year will finish earlier.  The new model will be run for the first time in academic year 2015/16.  The dates below – and thereafter – are based on the new academic year model.

Attendance and employment

Students on full-time 12-month taught Masters programmes are required to study for a full calendar year.  This means that students are expected to study beyond the end of the Summer Term to prepare their dissertations in time for September submission.

Taught Masters students who are Tier 4 visa holders will continue to be restricted to term-time levels of permissible hours of work during the summer, paid or unpaid.  More information on working during studies can be found on the School’s International Students Immigration Service website|.

Disclaimer

On rare occasions, UK universities experience industrial action by staff which may prevent the full range of services, including teaching, being offered to students. The right to take industrial action is permitted by law and the members of staff concerned have legal protection if acting within the law.

If services are affected by industrial action or other events beyond the School's control, the School will use its best endeavours to provide alternative facilities, not necessarily at the time of the action or event. Students should be aware that the School will not issue refunds of fees where industrial action or other events beyond the School's control affect teaching or other services
