Your First Weeks - 2017/18

The Your First Weeks section of our website, is designed to help you navigate the information that you will need to know as a new LSE student, starting in 2017. There is information about Welcome Week, Early Arrivals, Registration and getting ready for life at LSE and in London. There are also links to other key services and processes that you may need to interact with as you start your time at the School. 

Welcome Week is LSE's induction period. It is your opportunity to make friends, learn more about studying at LSE and living in London.  You will be invited to attend a number of events throughout Welcome Week. This year, Welcome Week will run between Monday 18 September and Friday 22 September 2017 (with some activities starting on Friday 15 September). Some MSc students will be exepected to arrive at LSE during August and Early September. There will be a specific programme of events to help you settle in during this time. 

Welcome Week 2016

There are a number of events taking place before Welcome Week kicks off! There is support for students on pre-sessional courses and those arriving early.
