News and events


We aim to keep you up to date throughout the application process, and to provide you with information regarding events that may have an effect on the progress of your application.

You should also familiarise yourself with how we process your documents and how the decision making process works.

Current headlines 


95% of our calls currently are from offer holders enquiring as to the status of documents they have sent in - either to meet conditions or to obtain a CAS.  We are currently working weekends to process the large volume of documents being received, and will also be amending our phone service to the below, to ensure we can prioritise processing documents, applications, decisions and CAS.


From Tuesday 2 August, our phone service opening hours will be:  10am-2pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. On Thursdays, our phone service hours will be 11am-2pm. 


Please only call if your documents were received before our current processing date and you have not had notification from us. We cannot confirm receipt of documents until they are processed - see How we process your documents.  We thank you for your patience.


To call us please call +44 (0)20 7955 7160. We use an automated system to direct your call to the most appropriate person.


Our normal phone service opening hours are 9am- 5pm UK time, Monday to Friday. The phone service will be closed each Thursday between 10am-11am for team meetings.

EU Referendum

LSE would like to reassure EU students who are currently registered at the School or who register in 2016/7 that our intention is to continue to charge the home rate for tuition fees for all subsequent years of their programme.

Exceptional Circumstances

  If circumstances beyond your control are having an adverse effect on making your application or meeting your offer conditions, whether you are in Nice or elsewhere, you can let us know using our extenuating circumstances form.  We will offer what practical advice and help we can.
