Every degree programme offered by the School has a set of programme regulations, which outline the courses available to students. Course guides provide descriptions of every individual course taught at the School, including a brief synopsis, the number of teaching hours, the method(s) of assessment and any recommended reading. Both programme regulations and course guides for the new academic year will be available from September in the School Calendar.
The following sections provide details regarding the selection of courses. Course selection is undertaken using the School's online portal, LSE for You (LFY).
If you are a new student joining the School in October, you should receive instructions on how to activate your LSE for You (LFY) account from the Undergraduate Admissions Office. You can collect your password after your account has been generated in early September.
For the 2014/15 academic session, the online course selection facility will be accessible from 8 September 2014 and you are required to register for your courses by 31 October 2014.
For instructions on selecting courses, please see Course selection tutorials.
If you have not yet completed all of your admissions paperwork (such as your Financial Undertaking Form or Confirmation of Conditions) then the option to select your courses will not be available to you on LFY. Please contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office to finalise your admission to the School, and allow one working day for the 'Course Selection' option to appear in LFY.
From the beginning of Lent Term week 9, Monday 10 March 2014, you will be able to make your course selection for 2014/15 online via your LFY account. Please ensure that you attend any departmental course selection meetings and seek advice from your Academic Adviser or Departmental Tutor before making your selection.
Course selection and changes: 31 October 2014
Changes for Lent term half units: 23 January 2015
Some departments have capped courses, which means that places on these courses will be limited to a specific number of students. On the LFY course choice system these courses are labelled as 'capped'. As soon as the number of students registered reaches the capped number, the status of these courses will change to "full" and no one else will be able to select them.
Please see the list of capped courses. Students are advised to contact their departments for further information
