Those taking A levels next summer are already considering what universities they might want to apply to.
The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is opening its doors to potential undergraduates for 2001 with an Open Day on Wednesday 20 September, from 10am to 4pm.
LSE, located right in the heart of London, off the Aldwych, is the leading social science institution in the world, with high quality teaching complemented by world class research. Each autumn, 1,000 new undergraduates from over 100 countries, begin their studies at LSE.
At the Open Day potential applicants can listen to subject talks from LSE academics covering the whole range of undergraduate degrees including Economics, Law, International History, Management, Geography, Mathematics and Sociology. Visitors can also explore the LSE campus, look round one of the halls of residence, and meet current LSE students.
LSE encourages applications from all academically-talented students, irrespective of background, and has recently restructured its scholarship and financial support arrangements to enable a wider group of students to study at the School.
Tim Rogers, LSE's Student Recruitment Manager, said: "LSE is a very international university, and receives applications from all over the world. We are also a London university, and are constantly working with schools in the London area to encourage local students to enjoy the benefits of studying at such a world class institution."
