 What we offer

Our research critically interrogates relationships between economic, political, social, spatial and cultural change

LSE is one of the world's leading social science universities. Students benefit from the interdisciplinary environment, an international student body and a global perspective. 

PhD students are very much part of the department's research culture. They are active members of our community and are involved with staff in relevant seminars and research workshops. 

Our Programmes 

We also offer a Visiting Research Student programme which allows students pursuing research at other institutions to attend courses and benefit from the expertise of the LSE faculty, Library and academic support services. 


Funding is available from a variety of School administered sources. For more information, please visit our MPhil/PhD admissions frequently asked questions page.
