Graduate study options

LSE's has developed graduate programmes to fulfil your needs whether you intend to pursue a career in industry, business, government, NGOs or academia, and whatever your background. It is also possible to join LSE for short periods as a visiting research student. Many programmes also offer a part-time option, allowing you to work alongside your studies.

A unique feature of many LSE programmes is the opportunity to link your studies with other institutions around the world, giving you a truly international perspective.

Meet, visit and discover LSE 

To help all potential students make an informed choice about coming to LSE, we organise visits by academic and administrative staff to UK and overseas events and hold a Graduate Open Evening. You can find out about other opportunities for speaking to LSE representatives by visiting Meet LSE.

Email an Alum

The Email an Alum service gives you the opportunity to contact recent graduates and find out more about LSE from those with first-hand experience. Our former students are in a unique position to answer your questions on their experiences prior to, during and since their time at the School. Featured alumni can be found at lse.ac.uk/emailAnAlum
