Entry requirements

Undergraduate

The STTB SMA is not acceptable as an entry qualification for LSE. 

Entry requirements vary by programme, and are listed on the individual undergraduate degree programme webpages. We express our standard offers in terms of GCE A levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB), but we consider a range of qualifications. 

Accepted international qualifications

Whilst not an exhaustive list, the following are international qualifications with which applicants may be eligible for consideration by LSE:

• At least 4 ‘Group A' Advanced Placement subjects (see the College Board and UCAS websites)
• A University of London International Programmes qualification
• A foundation programme (See EducationUK for more detail)
• A year of university study from another institution* 
*Applicants to whom we make an offer on the basis of an undergraduate degree are normally expected to obtain a B+ or the equivalent overall, but higher marks in specific subjects may also be necessary.

Applicants offered a place on the basis of a foundation programme or university studies may be asked to sit the Undergraduate Admissions Assessment (UGAA).

Competition for places

Please note that, due to the intense competition for places, meeting or exceeding the minimum entry requirements does not guarantee admission. In addition to the general entry requirements, applicants should also refer to the individual undergraduate degree programme descriptions, especially for quantitative programmes, where the advanced study of Mathematics up to school-leaving age is often required.

Find out how to apply. Note that the closing date for applications is 15 January in the year that you hope to start at LSE.
