Foundation Programmes

The Language Centre here at the London School of Economics and Political Science reflects the specialist nature of the School itself, namely, a world class institution where quality of research and teaching is paramount.

If your first language is not English and you are hoping to study Social Sciences at the LSE or another UK University you could consider our English Foundation courses to bring your English up to the level required.

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Language Foundation Programmes (LN901, LN902, LN903)

If you are thinking of applying (you may have done so already) to LSE or another UK university then you may wish to consider this programme particularly if your offer is conditional on improving your English for academic purposes.

  • Each module can be booked individually
  • Three modules can serve as a Language Foundation Year
  • When modules are booked together they constitute a programme of study
  • Separate undergraduate and postgraduate strands available (subject to numbers)
  • Geared to the specific needs of Social Science Students
  • Each 10 week programme has 20 hours weekly contact time (total 200 hours) and is designed to improve your English level by raising your IELTS score by 0.5
  • Tuition fee also covers course materials and full social programme
  • Maximum of 12 students per class

Please note this course is purely an English for Academic Purposes course. It is not a university foundation course and will not enable to you apply to an undergraduate programme at LSE or another UK university.
