Any offer of admission that the School issues to you is only valid for the specific programme for which it is made. Where an applicant has applied to multiple programmes, they will only be eligible to receive one offer. It is not LSE policy to make more than one offer to applicants in the same admissions cycle.
You can only request a programme substitution if one of the following conditions applies:
- you have not yet received a decision from LSE (in which case it is a relatively straightforward substitution of one programme for another)
- you have been unsuccessful on the programme to which you originally applied BUT you have not used all your five programme choices (in which case it is an additional programme choice)
Please note, however, that it is not possible for us to re-consider your application in the same admissions cycle for a programme for which you have already been unsuccessful that year. Neither is it possible for you to make a substitution if you have already been rejected by LSE for your original programme choice and you have used all your five programme choices.
If you satisfy the above criteria you should submit your application via UCAS before 26 January 2022 and your application will be considered alongside all other on-time applicants for that programme. If your request to change programme arrives after 26 January 2022, your application will be classed as late. Once this programme change has been made and a decision issued, you cannot then revert back again to your original choice.
