Every student is charged a fee for their programme. For undergraduate students, there is a fee for each year of their programme.
Fees cover registration, teaching, classes and individual supervision, 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. It does not cover living costs or travel or fieldwork. If you receive an offer, you will be informed of the relevant tuition fee amount in your offer letter.
Fees are fixed each spring for the following session only, and will be published in the Table of Fees.
All queries regarding your fees and fee payments are dealt with by the Fees Office.
Tuition fee amounts
For graduate students, tuition fee amounts are listed on the individual graduate degree programme webpages.
For undergraduate students, the individual tuition fee amount is available on the individual undergraduate degree programme webpages.
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.
Scholarships, bursaries, loans and other funding opportunities
The School recognises that the cost of living in London may be higher than in your home town or country. LSE provides generous financial support, making available a total of £15.5 million in funding to UK, EU and overseas undergraduate and graduate students. Some support is also available from external organisations including the UK government and some overseas governments.
