GO LSE: Global Opportunities at LSE

LSE offers you the opportunity to study abroad during your undergraduate degree, gaining experience that will enable you to become an engaged global citizen.

The School has year-long exchanges with a number of overseas institutions. You can apply for these opportunities during the second year of your undergraduate degree.

Please note that year-long exchanges would be additional to LSE’s academic requirements so you must return to LSE after your year abroad to study the final year of your undergraduate degree programme.

For more information, visit the GO LSE home page.
