Offer Holder FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions...

Congratulations on receiving an offer in the Department of Statistics at LSE. If you can't find the answer you are looking for here, then please email us at statistics@lse.ac.uk and we will try and help you! 

What does a 'Conditional offer' mean?

If you haven’t already, you would find it helpful to look at the LSE Offer Pack for Undergraduates or Graduates.

A conditional offer refers to: 

‘You do not yet satisfy the academic conditions required before entry but you plan to do so. Your conditions are given in the offer letter and may include tests such as English language as well as degree results, or attendance at Pre-sessional/ Introductory or LSE Summer School courses.’

In the event that you failed to meet one of the offer conditions (i.e. your degree result was not what you expected) you should still send your results and the Selectors will consider whether your offer can be confirmed.

How do I change my mode of study?

If you are a MSc offer holder and you want to change your mode of study i.e from full time to part time, then you need to complete a “Change of Circumstances Request” which will then be processed by Graduate Admissions and they will issue a revised offer email.

Please note that there is no part time mode of study at Undergraduate level. 

How do I contact LSE Accomodation? 

Any queries about accommodation are answered by the LSE Accommodation Office. Therefore we would advise to contact the Accommodation Office for further support and information.

You can find their website here: http://www.lse.ac.uk/student-life/accommodation  

And their email address is: accommodation@lse.ac.uk

Do I meet the English Language Requirements?

You can find out whether you meet our English language requirements at the link below:

http://www.lse.ac.uk/study-at-lse/Graduate/Prospective-students/Entry-requirements/English-language-requirements

If your offer is conditional, pending the English language requirement, it isn’t usually possible to change a condition once it has been set. Therefore if you have insuffient time for a retest and feel that you have a good reason, you will need to submit a waiver request here.

How do I apply for my visa?

Here you will find information on applying for your Tier 4 visa. This should answer all your queries but if you are still unsure about anything after this, then please contact our Visa Team, ISVAT as they are the only team authorised to provide immigration and visa advice at LSE. Regrettably, the Department of Statistics is not able to advise on visa queries.

How do I provide proof of degree? 

You can find more information here on proof of degree:

I am currently on a waiting list. When will I receive a final decision? 

Please see our Graduate Admissions page.

Graduate Admissions advise that any places will be offered from mid-August onwards, as there is no possibility to issue final decisions before then. 

If you do not receive an offer, you can reinstate your application to the next admissions cycle. Please see here for more information.
