Frequently asked questions

Q. My son/daughter is graduating this year, but I'm not sure what the arrangements are for the ceremony. Who should I speak to?

A. In the first instance, you will need to speak to your son or daughter who will have received all the necessary information about their particular ceremony. Following this, if you still require information, please visit this link which should provide you with all you need to know about graduation.

Q. My son/daughter is having trouble with their visa status, who can they ask to help them with this problem?

A. If your son or daughter is having problems with their visa status, visit visa help.

Q. My child would like to find a part-time job, preferably at LSE, can you recommend the best way for him/her to go about this?

A. There are a number of part-time jobs available on campus, especially at the beginning of the academic year. These jobs are in extremely high demand, so we would advise that your son or daughter complete applications to the best of their ability. They can visit LSE jobs, which will lead them to all the information about a part-time career and thereafter. The Annual Fund also employs students on a part-time basis as student callers - recruitment will begin again in Lent term, and information will be added to the student jobs in LSE Advancement page.

Q. I will be visiting my son/daughter in London soon; can you recommend a good accessible place to stay?

A. As a member of the Friends and Family programme you can enjoy discounted accommodation rates for a select number of hotels and lodgings. Visit here to find out more

Q. I've thoroughly enjoyed being a member of the Friends and Family programme, can I continue to be a member once my son/daughter graduates?

A. As of this year, if your child is soon to graduate you can continue to be a member of the Friends and Family programme. Please email friendsandfamily@lse.ac.uk expressing your interest in remaining a member.

Q. I received a call from a current LSE student recently, can you verify that this was a genuine call?

A. The LSE Annual Fund calls alumni and members of the Friends and Family programme throughout the year to update them about the progress of the School and answer any questions they may have, as well as seeking philanthropic support of the Annual Fund. If you are called and would like to find out if the call was genuine, please email annualfund@lse.ac.uk.

Q. I'd like to meet some parents who are part of the programme and live relatively close to me. Are you able to organise this?

A. We are working to build a rigorous network of parents, and will hopefully be able to effectively connect parents in the very near future.
