You must ensure that you provide accurate information on your UCAS application. Your name should be as it appears on your passport and your contact details up to date, to ensure that we can send you information pertaining to your application.
The Undergraduate Admissions Office will also make a fee assessment based on the information in this section according to the guidance disseminated by UKCISA (UK Council for International Student Affairs). You can find out more about fee status classifications here.
Relevant criminal convictions must be declared on your UCAS form. The School's Admissions Policy states our procedure in this area.
If you have a disability, you should disclose this as early as possible during the application process. This will have no bearing on your admission decision, which is made solely on academic merit/potential. However, early disclosure does allow the School's Disability and Wellbeing Service to make 'reasonable adjustments' for Open Days and Registration, should you be offered a place. It will also allow you to talk to them in confidence, before you decide which university you would like to attend, if you so wish. This is a good opportunity to inform us of any additional support you may require if you have special needs from dyslexia to a physical disability.
You may find it useful to list a parent or teacher as your nominated contact on UCAS. This will allow us them to speak to us regarding your application on your behalf. LSE cannot provide details to third parties without the permission of the applicant.
Please note, LSE does not take the following information into consideration when reviewing your application:
- ethnic origin and national identity
- activities in preparation for higher education
- parents' experience of Higher Education
Further information regarding how your application is assessed can be found in our Admissions Policy.
