Fee reductions, rewards and support
Graduate Support Scheme (GSS) & LSE Awards
GSS is LSE’s major financial support scheme for study at taught master’s level. The scheme is open to all applicants, with the exception of those undertaking specific modular or executive programmes. Support ranges in value, and you can find out further details, including how to apply, by visiting the information page.
LSE also offers a number of other awards for taught master’s students, and if you have applied for the GSS scheme, you will automatically be considered for these.
MRes/MPhil/PhD applicants are automatically considered for LSE Studentships; there is no separate application process. Further information about these scholarships can be found on the Financial Support Office website.
A ten percent fee reduction is awarded to any LSE undergraduate student, who is starting taught postgraduate study at the School. Please find further details on this discount and eligibility on the Fees Office website.
Early Payment Reward
A reward for any early tuition fee payment is credited to your LSE sQuid Card. You can then spend the reward in the many LSE catering areas and bars on campus. Please check the information on the Fees Office website for further information, including cut-off dates.
If your application is successful, your fee status will be detailed on your offer of admission. If you feel that your fee status has been incorrectly assessed, please follow our guidance on Fee Status Classification.
