If you have been made an offer of admission, you may have been asked to supply evidence of qualifications by posting the original documents to LSE. However, many postal services are currently disrupted, and LSE’s Undergraduate Admissions team is currently working remotely. As such, you are able to verify your qualifications in alternative ways and we advise against posting any documents (particularly original documents). Do not bring them to the School in person.
Please note that these measures are being implemented to support offer holders, but the School reserves the right to amend this information and to ensure that original academic credentials are verified at a later stage.
Verifying high school documents
As we are currently unable to confirm receipt of, or verify, documents that have been sent to us via post, documents can be sent to us directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. However, in order for your documents to be accepted, such emails must:
- be sent directly by an official at your school/ institution;
- be sent from an official school/institutional email address (not Hotmail, Gmail etc.);
- contain the full name and job title of the official who sends the email;
- provide your final and not your provisional results; and
- include your name and UCAS or LSE ID number.
- include your date of birth.
Verifying English language test results
If you have been asked to demonstrate your English language proficiency, we may be able to verify your test results online if you have taken an IELTS, Pearson, TOEFL or Cambridge Advanced/Proficiency tests:
For IELTS, you can provide your Test Report Form Number or a scanned copy of your certificate to the Undergraduate Admissions Office at email@example.com
For Pearson, ensure you have sent your scores to LSE via your Pearson PTE account. You must contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org to enable us to retrieve your results.
For TOEFL, you can confirm your date of birth and your TOEFL appointment number with the Undergraduate Admissions Office by emailing us at email@example.com
For Cambridge Advanced and Proficiency Tests, email your Candidate ID No (3 Letters + 6 Numbers) and Secret No (4 digits) to the Undergraduate Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have completed another one of LSE’s accepted English language qualifications, such as IGCSE English, please refer to the information on verifying school documents above.
