Prospective students


Study abroad in the heart of London at the world's leading social science institution.

The General Course at LSE is a fully integrated year of undergraduate study in one of the most vibrant, diverse and historical cities in the world. General Course students may study any combination of the 250+ undergraduate courses taught at the School, in disciplines as varied as Anthropology, Geography and Social Policy.

Our study abroad students are guaranteed a room in our central London student accommodation, and are fully integrated, both in terms of our accommodation and teaching, with our undergraduate students, around half of whom come from over 140 countries outside the UK.

In addition to the 200 clubs and societies run by the LSE Students' Union, we offer a tailored calendar of social events and subsidised weekend trips to European destinations, exclusively for our study abroad students.
