We’re excited to welcome you to the Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method! Tuesday 20 September marks the beginning of the Welcome week, which is your chance to meet the Department, get to know one another and get a taste of life at LSE before the serious (philosophical) work begins.

To help you getting started, we’ve produced introductory videos for each of our courses, so you’ll get a chance to hear about everything you’ll learn on your courses, directly from your lecturers, and before you even arrive on campus!

But what to expect of your first days here? Below you’ll find the full timetable for all new philosophy students, both undergraduate and master’s. All events marked with an asterisk (*) are organised centrally by the School, you can find further details about these on the main LSE Welcome pages and in the LSE Welcome Guide.

Important: Make sure to download the Student Hub app to view your Welcome calendar!

Let us know if you have any questions and we’ll look forward to meeting you.

Please note that the funeral for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has now been confirmed for 19 September, which will be observed as a public holiday. On 19 September, LSE will be closed with no access to campus.
