I wish to accept my offer
The offer reply form is an online form which will become available on your LSE for you account once your offer is processed. Instructions are on the form. You should use the form to:
- Indicate your acceptance of the offer
- Inform us if you are disabled or have specific learning needs
- Provide your passport number (non-EU/EEA nationals)
- Provide a photograph for your student card
- Indicate your agreement to the terms and conditions of registration
You should submit this form to let us know whether you intend to accept your offer or not. You should also submit the Financial Undertaking Form as soon as you can.
We must receive the form to officially record your acceptance of our offer. The form is also used to:
- Generate your student card with the photo you upload
- Set up your LSE computer network account
We ask that you submit the form within six weeks of receiving your offer, if possible. If you are not able to submit the form within this time, DO NOT WORRY. You will not lose your offer, nor will we assume that you do not wish to take up your place. You do not need to contact us to inform us that you will be accepting, just submit the form when you can.
Please return the form as soon as you can to enable us to plan for the coming year, and to make the registration process easier for you when you arrive.
You may receive an email reminding you that the form has not been submitted; these are sent automatically. Once the form is processed, you will see your status updated online.
I wish to decline my offer
We are sorry that you have decided not to take up your place at LSE. We wish you all the best with your alternative plans. Please inform us of your decision
indicating in the relevant box on the offer reply form (accessible from the online status tracker) that you do not wish to take up your offer
using the online decline form if you have been made an alternative offer of a place at LSE and wish to inform us.
I wish to defer my offer to next year
LSE has a no-deferrals policy for offers for graduate programmes. The only exception to this is in cases of unforeseen illness or bereavement.
Instead, you may reinstate your application for entry in the following year at no cost for up to two programme choices. As an early applicant, it is very likely (although not 100% guaranteed) that you will be made an offer in the following cycle.
If your deferral is agreed in exceptional circumstances
We ask you to submit a deferral deposit as requested on your deferral letter, using the eShop to pay. The deposit must be received by the January 31st deadline to secure your new offer for next year. The deferral deposit is offset against your tuition fees once you register.
Your new offer pack will be sent to you once we start issuing offers for the new year of entry, usually in January. Please make sure that you inform us of any change of address via your LSE for You account.
I wish to decline and reinstate my application for another programme this year
Exceptionally, you may be considered for a further programme for the current session.
If you choose to be considered for a further choice and are successful, we will contact you to ask you which offer you would like to retain; it is not possible to hold more than one offer. If you wish to take up the new offer, you should use the decline form to tell us that you no longer wish to keep your first choice offer.
If you are not successful for your new choice, you may still take up your current offer using the online offer reply form on your LSE for you account .
If you have already been considered for both of your original choices (i.e. your current offer is for your second choice), you must pay a further application fee in order to be considered for a third or subsequent programme.
If your current offer is for your first choice and you wish to be considered for a second choice you do not need to pay a further fee.
Use the How do I add or amend programme choices form to inform us of your new choice and to submit a new personal statement.
I wish to decline and reinstate my application for another programme next year
You must inform us of your intention to reinstate before the deadline in mid November noted on the form at the latest, as all old application files will be destroyed after this date.
Please use the Offer Reply Form linked via the online application tracker to tell us that you won't be taking up your place this year.
Once you have done so, make sure you inform us of your intention to reinstate before the deadline in mid November noted on the form at the latest, as all old application files will be destroyed after this date.
Use the How do I..? form to inform us of your programme choices, and the LSE eShop payment form to submit your reinstatement fee. Please note that the reinstatement fee is currently £80.
Your application will be considered when the new application cycle begins.
Make sure that we are informed of any changes to your contact details via your record on the application tracker.
