Request a Summer School visa letter

If you are required to apply for a Student Visitor Visa, you will require a Summer School visa letter. Please fill out the form below in order to receive a Summer School visa letter.  Please be aware of the following:

  • In order for us to produce a letter you must have paid your tuition fees in full.
  • Most students will need a letter including details of their accommodation.  If you are staying in LSE halls, do not order a Summer School visa letter until your accommodation has been confirmed by the Accommodation Office and paid for in full.
  • Requesting a letter before accommodation is booked or fees paid could well result in the letter you receive being insufficient to obtain a visa and you being refused entry to the UK.  If in doubt check with your local consulate or embassy BEFORE requesting a letter from LSE.
  • If you are unsure of any of the details contained in the form you will not be able to order a Summer School visa letter.
  • Multiple requests for letters will not be processed.

Do not request a Summer School visa letter if you have not yet paid your tuition fees or accommodation fees (if staying in LSE accommodation).

Delivery of your letter

When requesting a Summer School visa letter, you will be given two options for delivery:

  • Courier deliver - we will send you your letter via DHL. This will cost £50 and can be ordered through the LSE E-Shop (see below). If you wish to arrange for multiple visa letters for different students be sent out in one order, please fill out the request form with the first student's details then when it takes you to the Shopping Basket, click on View/Edit questionnaire and fill out the details of the second student. You can do this as many times to correspond with the number of letters to go out in one DHL order.
  • Collection from our office by yourself or someone you know.

International Hall students

If you are staying in International Hall please note that this is not LSE accommodation therefore please check the 'No' box for the question 'Are you staying in LSE Accommodation'.
