Applicants under consideration


Explore the menu links on the left for useful tips and information for students who have submitted their application for graduate study at LSE, but have not yet received the decision.

Decision timeline

Decisions on applications are made by individual department selectors, and the time until a decision is received can vary. As a general guide, you should expect to hear the outcome of your application within eight weeks of our acknowledgement of your complete application for master's applications. Research programme applications are likely to take longer, as they are considered by panels of selectors.

As soon as any decision has been made, it will be reflected in your online application tracker.

Further guidance

If you haven't submitted your application yet, you may find the pages for prospective applicants and applicants in progress helpful. If you have already received an offer to study with LSE, please check our guidance for offer holders.
