Lectures are an integral part of your programme and will introduce themes and ideas on a particular topic before the corresponding class (undergraduate) or seminar (postgraduate).
Every lecture at the LSE is open to all students, subject to space in the lecture theatre, so if you would like to attend additional lectures out of interest, and your timetable permits, do take advantage of this opportunity.
Attendance at classes/seminars is compulsory and attendance is recorded.
Further information regarding the delivery of lectures and classes is available via the following webpage.
How to get advice on your teaching: Advice and Feedback Hours
The purpose of “advice and feedback hours” is to give students regular access to teachers. This gives you the opportunity to talk to your course teachers on a 1-2-1 basis. If you need clarification on a particular topic, are having any difficulties with the course, or if you are interested in their particular field of study and want to know more, you can book appointments with the course teacher during their advice and feedback hours. You can speak to any teacher during their advice and feedback hours, even if you are not a student on one of their courses.
All teachers hold advice and feedback hours at least once a week during term time. Information on how to book an appointment with a teacher from the Department of Social Policy is available via the People page of the departmental website.
Information on how to book an appointment with teachers from outside Departments can usually be found by checking their Department webpages. If you are unable to attend a particular advice and feedback hour, for example because of a timetable clash, you can contact the individual teacher to arrange an appointment at an alternative time.
