Every graduate student is charged a fee for their programme.
Fees cover registration, teaching, first entry to examinations, the use of the Library and membership of the Students' Union. They also normally cover teaching and the use of student common rooms at other colleges of the University of London, if your programme has intercollegiate arrangements. If you receive an offer, you will be informed of the relevant tuition fee amount in your offer letter.
Tuition fees amounts
Tuition fee amounts are listed on the individual programme pages. You can also refer to the table of fees below.

See the table of fees for 2017/18 entry [PDF]
In some cases the amount of tuition fees you will need to pay, and any financial support you are eligible for, will depend on whether you are classified as a home (UK/EU) or overseas student, otherwise known as your fee status.
LSE assesses your fee status based on guidelines provided by the Department of Education.
The UK Government has confirmed that the fee level for EU graduate new entrants in 2017/18 will be the same as Home UK for the duration of their degree programme. The UK Government has confirmed this will also be the case for graduate new entrants in 2018/19. Further information can be found on gov.uk website.
Fee reductions and rewards
Students who completed undergraduate study at LSE and are beginning taught graduate study at the School are eligible for a fee reduction of 10 per cent of the fee. Some programmes, such as executive programmes, are excluded from this fee reduction.
For 2017/18 entry, there is also an early payment reward for self-financed students who pay their tuition fees by specific dates.
This is not available for 2018/19 entry.
