Welcome to LSE Philosophy! Monday 20 September marks the beginning of Welcome, which is your chance to meet the Department, meet one another and get a taste of life at LSE before the serious (philosophical) work begins.

For this year’s Welcome we’ve tried to strike a balance between online and in-person sessions. Although the majority of the UK’s domestic COVID-19 restrictions have now been lifted, we’re aware that some of our new students may not be able to make it onto campus in time to attend our in-person events, so we’ve tried to provide online alternatives wherever possible.

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

We’re also very happy to announce the return of the (in)famous LSE Philosophy Welcome Soirée! This will take place on the top floor of the New Academic Building on Friday 24 September and will feature drinks, nibbles, not-exclusively-philosophical conversation and a live jazz band!

Below you’ll find the full timetable for new philosophy students, both undergraduate and master’s. Just follow the links for further info. 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.

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