Once submitted, your application will be assessed by an academic in the relevant field. You will be notified of the outcome within a week of submission.
If successful, you will be emailed an offer and details of how to accept it. For offers made more than 8 weeks before the course start date, a place on the course is guaranteed for 14 days, and is confirmed upon full payment of tuition fees. Fee payments must be received within this time, otherwise your place will be made available to new applicants. For offers made within 8 weeks of the course start date, immediate payment is required to guarantee your place. By accepting your offer, you also agree to our terms and conditions.
Once notified that your place is confirmed you can begin making plans for your time at LSE. Pre-course reading materials (if any) will be made available to confirmed participants from two weeks prior to the start of each course.
Equality and diversity
Equality and diversity are central to the aims and objectives of LSE. The School actively promotes the involvement of all students and staff in all areas of School life and seeks to ensure that they are free from discrimination on the grounds of gender, race, social background, disability, religious or political belief, age and sexual orientation. At LSE we recognise that the elimination of discrimination is integral to ensuring the best possible service to students, staff and visitors to the School.
