All IR courses operate controlled access due to limited places and/or prerequisites required to study the course.
You will apply to courses of interest in LSE for You (LFY) with a written supporting statement of no more than 200 words which should succinctly address your reasons for wishing to take the course and how it fits with your overall research interests. TIP: be specific about why you wish to take a course, and note any research, dissertation or career-related reasons for your application. Statements are reviewed by course convenors who decide who will receive an offer to join a course.
You can apply for up to 4.0 units of courses, which is the unit value required for your programme. You cannot select more courses than you need.
If any of your course requests are unsuccessful you must request other courses during the course selection period, the total number of live course requests is displayed on your main course selection screen. It is recommended that you identify a couple of back-up courses, should a place on a first-choice course not be available.
In order to help course convenors understand and process your request, you should state under which Paper you are selecting the course.
- Keep your statement short and to the point. Write no MORE than 200 words.
- Indicate if the course is for Paper 2 or Paper 3.
