Data protection

Any information you provide may be held by LSE on computer in accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998. Among other purposes, this information will form the basis of records of registered students supplied to the Higher Education Statistical Agency (HESA), which is owned and managed by the universities to provide statistics for the Higher Education Funding Councils and the universities. All information supplied to HESA is subject to strict confidentiality safeguards, and is published only as statistical tables.

In addition to the HESA requirements LSE, like all other UK universities, collects and processes information on its students for various essential administrative, academic and health and safety reasons, in order to pursue its legitimate interests as a university. When you register as a student of the School, we will tell you what data will be collected, the purposes for which the data will be processed, and the recipients to whom the data might be disclosed.

You have the right to obtain a copy of the current personal information held on you by the School. A fee of £10 is payable for each enquiry, which should be addressed to the Data Protection Officer at the School (Data Protection).
