Every graduate student is charged a fee for their programme.
Tuition fees 2018-19: £32,000
This tuition fee covers:
- course materials
- some meals and events in London
Please note that travel and accommodation for the London teaching modules is not included in the fees.
There are several payment options available to pay your fees once you are a registered student. Please contact the LSE Fees Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
For this programme, there is a pre-registration fee of £2,500 to gain early access to online programme materials (this will be deducted from the overall tuition fee).
Fee reductions and rewards
Currently there is an early payment reward for self-financed students who pay their tuition fees by specific dates.
Please refer to the Fees Office website for updates.
Funding for your programme
Executive Programmes are not eligible for financial support from LSE, as the programme is designed for students to continue working and earning a salary while they study. However there are a range of other financing options available for the programme, outlined below.
We provide customised professional development related to each student’s current employment role, and the programme can therefore be hugely beneficial to your company or organisation. The return on investment for your organisation at the end of the programme will be a fully developed employee with a unique skill set, and the talent to drive growth, success and innovation.
We encourage you to discuss this directly with your employer and make a case for their financial sponsorship if this is appropriate, as they will gain valuable return on their investment in sponsoring you.
External funding opportunities
A wide range of funding opportunities are available to students from across the world who plan to study on a postgraduate programme in the UK, provided by a number of organisations and charities. We recommend that you search our Awards pages and apply for any appropriate funding available to you, including scholarships, grant schemes, and fellowships.
Bank loans and government loans
- UK residents: Professional and Career Development Loans (PCLDs) are available to students who have lived in the UK for three years prior to taking out the loan (regardless of whether they are employed or not).
- non-UK residents: For non-UK students, banks in your home country are also likely to offer student loans. Contact large banks based in your local region to find out about your options.
- your government may also have a student loan scheme, for example with Federal Student Aid in the United States. Contact the Education Ministry in your home country, or your national Embassy in London, to find out more about any government loan schemes available to you.
Make sure a loan is right for you
If you’re considering taking out a loan to fund your studies, make sure you think about this decision carefully and choose an option with repayment terms which will be affordable and reasonable for you after you graduate.
