LSE is committed to delivering face-to-face teaching in the academic year 2021/2. We are monitoring closely government guidance on the easing of lockdown, travel arrangements and the UK vaccination programme to help inform our planning for next year. The evolving situation means that it is not currently possible to state in any detail how LSE's graduate programmes will run in the new academic session.
During the 2020-21 academic year, LSE offered flexible teaching and learning which comprised both in-person and online delivery. In Michaelmas Term, we taught classes and seminars in-person on our campus, while lectures were delivered online. This was positively received by students and staff. As well as developing new ways of teaching and learning, we also invested in technical infrastructure and campus safety to support our student community throughout the pandemic.
While it is too early to say how the new academic session will look, we will be ready to welcome students onto campus for in-person teaching or offer a hybrid model of both in-person on-campus and online teaching and learning using state of the art technology designed around student needs. Our priority remains the health and wellbeing of our community and we will continue to follow government guidance to keep our students and staff safe.
