English language requirements
Your application will be considered on its academic merits. An offer of a place may be conditional on attending additional courses and/or passing qualifying examinations at a suitable standard, in addition to your degree. You should note that there are always many more applications than places available at LSE and possession of the minimum entrance requirements does not guarantee that you will be offered admission. It is therefore in your interests to apply as early as possible.
Entry to the programme in Autumn 2014 is now closed.
Applications will re-open in October for entry in Autumn 2015. We operate rolling admissions so we don’t have a closing date. However, we offer places on a first-come, first-served basis, and places on the programme are likely to fill by around Easter, so we encourage you to apply as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Our admissions process is managed centrally, so please visit the LSE Graduate Admissions Office website for queries about the application process and requirements.
