Student Shadowing

Year 12 and 13 students spend half a day at LSE

Student Shadowing participant

Student Shadowing provides a unique opportunity for Year 12 and 13 students from schools and colleges in the UK to gain an insight into studying at LSE. Students spend half a day at LSE shadowing an undergraduate student. As part of the day, they will:

  • attend an undergraduate lecture
  • have a tour of the campus
  • quiz students on their university life

Students also have the opportunity to speak to someone from Student Marketing and Recruitment with any queries or concerns they have about admissions and other aspects of studying at LSE.

We hope that shadowing a student will allow participants to make an informed decision about whether to apply to LSE.

In 2017/18, over 500 students took part in LSE's Student Shadowing Scheme.

Student Shadowing runs from October to March each year and applications are now open for 2018/19. See Eligibility and How to apply for further information below.
