Newsletter for New Students


Welcome to the Department of Media and Communications| at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

While you are making preparations to come to London, this Newsletter is designed to keep you up to date with events and activities for new students.  We hope this will help you to prepare for your year at LSE. 

Our teaching and research change from year to year, new staff are recruited and others move on.  We make every effort to ensure that the programmes and courses are offered as described here and that any changes would add to, rather than detract from, your opportunities.  We update these pages when necessary, so do please bear in mind that things may change between when you submit your application and when you start your study with us.

For the inside track on studying at LSE, you can read the Students@LSE| blog.
