This successful event is open to 30 bright Year 12 pupils from London state schools and from backgrounds which means they don’t always consider university as the natural next step.
Management is a broad and rewarding degree programme which encompasses many disciplines, and we are hoping to offer places to students with an interest in Management, Economics, Finance, Accounting, Marketing and Human Resources.
The day includes:
An introduction to LSE and the Management Department
Specialist admissions advice tailored to those interested in applying to Management
Two interactive taster seminars where students can gain an insight into some of the topics they would study as a Management student
A guided tour of the LSE campus
The opportunity to network with current LSE Management undergraduate students and staff
This event is free of charge and lunch will be provided for all students attending the Taster Day.
Students that are considering applying for a Management or a related degree and who have the grades/predicted grades to attend a top university (A* to B grades) should apply for the conference.
To be eligible students must:
• Attend a state school or college in London
(preference is given to applicants attending schools/colleges performing below the national average or with FSM at 35% or above as defined in the DfE Performance Tables)
• Meet relevant academic pre-requisite criteria (where specified)
We will give priority to applicants who meet at least one of the following:
• In receipt of free school meals and/or pupil premium
• Looked After Child
Or two of the following:
• No parental experience of Higher Education (HE)
• Parents/carers employed in low socio economic categories
• Parents/carers in receipt of means tested benefits (details should be provided)
• Live in an area of low participation to HE as defined by POLAR 3 Quintile 1 (http://www.hefce.ac.uk/postcode/).
• Have a disability
• From an ethnic group which is under represented in Higher Education.
We review all applications in a holistic manner and whilst we prioritise students who meet the above criteria we will consider all the information contained in an application. We therefore encourage applicants to include any additional information in the application. Where teachers are required to provide a reference as part of the application process we request that this includes as much contextual information as possible to support us in our selection process.
Applications for the programme will open in March 2016.
