The School provides generous financial support, in the form of bursaries and scholarships to UK, EU and overseas students.
Although the terms of the UK’s exit agreement from the EU have not yet been finalised, LSE will continue to make funding available to all students regardless of fee status.
Undergraduate students from the UK and EU students are eligible for an LSE Bursary assessed according to household income.
For new students starting in 2019, the maximum Bursary available is £4,000 per year for those students with the lowest residual incomes. The Bursary value tapers to £750 for those students on higher incomes to a maximum of £42,611.
LSE Discretionary Bursaries
A number of Discretionary Bursaries are available for UK and EU LSE students who face exceptional financial need. The value of the award may vary according to need, but is not expected to exceed a total of £4,000 combined with the LSE Bursary.
LSE Accommodation Bursaries
An LSE Accommodation Bursary is designed to encourage students from lower-income households to apply for accommodation in halls. Available for UK nationals, the value of the award will vary depending on the number of recipients and their financial need.
Each year LSE awards a number of scholarships, funded by private or corporate donation, to our students. The number, value, eligibility criteria and type of awards vary from year to year.
All the scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need in the first instance, and then academic merit.
