Information for teachers and schools

Find out how you can support your students interested in studying at LSE

The LSE webinar was a great experience for my students. They appreciated how Dan tailored his speech to their background. The technology was simple and worked very well.

Events for teachers


Do you want your students to find out more about LSE, but can’t make the trip to London? We are now pleased to offer a virtual webinar service for schools. 

On a date and time to suit you, we will give a presentation and Q&A session over the internet. Students will be told about the subjects we offer, student life at LSE, and applications. They will then have the opportunity to ask their own questions.

Our webinars are a great alternative to visiting the LSE campus, and along with our Virtual Open Day, will help students get a comprehensive idea of what LSE has to offer.

Taster courses, campus tours and more

There are a lot of different opportunities for your students to find out more about LSE individually: from visiting the campus or attending an event to ways to find out more about LSE from home, such as through our webinars, videos, student blog or student video diaries.

Visit LSE

There are a range of ways for teachers and schools to visit LSE.

We offer campus tours each month, or visitors can also go on a self-guided tour, and drop into Student Marketing and Recruitment with questions about applying to or studying at LSE.

Taster courses are also a great way of discovering more about a particular subject as well as experiencing life as a London student. 

We also host two Undergraduate Open Days a year, and welcome individual students or school groups.
