Information for international students


Students from all over the world have been welcomed at LSE since the foundation of the School in 1895. At present there are over 150 countries represented on campus, making LSE a uniquely international and cosmopolitan university. LSE provides you with an opportunity to study the social sciences from a truly global perspective, surrounded by an entirely international community.

As an international undergraduate student, you will be guaranteed accommodation in either an LSE or a University of London Hall of Residence, provided you apply by the deadline of 31 May. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a place for every graduate student, although places are available in LSE halls and intercollegiate halls. 

The British Council provides information for overseas students to help them make an informed choice about studying in the UK. For further information on the benefits and opportunities of higher education in the UK you should look at the website for Education UK  and also on the UK Council for International Student Affairs website.
