Tuition Fees

Every undergraduate student is charged a fee for each year of their programme. Every graduate student is charged a fee for their programme.

The fee covers registration and examination fees payable to the School, lectures, classes and individual supervision, lectures given at other colleges under intercollegiate arrangements and, under current arrangements, membership of the Students' Union. It does not cover living costs or travel or fieldwork.

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. Further information can be found on our fee status classification page.

Further information can be found on the Fees and Student Finance Office website. See the Table of fees for tuition fees per year and the LSE Student Fees Policy.
