Students are required to register to spend at least three months (one semester) at LSE, i.e. from October to December, January to March or April to June. Your first step is to contact the EDP Coordinator in your home institution, who will be in touch with the LSE EDP Coordinator. For a visit starting in September 2020, the application should be completed by Monday 4 May 2020. We suggest you contact your local coordinator by March. Once we have received notification from your EDP Coordinator that you have been selected to visit LSE, we will contact you with instructions on how to make a formal application.
EDP students visiting LSE do not pay tuition fees. However, there is no additional funding available for EDP exchanges.
EDP students visiting LSE are registered as Research Exchange students in the Economics Department. You can enrol in courses and take exams like other MRes/PhD students, but there is no route for progression onto the MRes/PhD and you are expected to return to your original EDP institution at the end of your visit.
