LSE's new School of Public Policy to launch
in September 2018

In September 2018, LSE’s School of Public Policy fully replaces the existing Institute of Public Affairs. The School of Public Policy will be the home for LSE’s Master of Public Administration (MPA), Executive MPA and Executive MPP degrees.

If you have visited our website before, you will notice our web presence is now updated to reflect our new name and purpose. Our degree programmes will seamlessly transfer to the School of Public Policy from September 2018.

From mid-2019, the School of Public Policy will be located in the new LSE Centre Building on Houghton Street, where it will sit alongside departments such as Government and International Relations. The LSE Centre Building is designed by the world-leading architects Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners, and is one of LSE’s largest ever capital development projects.
