Academic Information

As GO LSE students at SGH Warsaw School of Economics will be part of the CIVICA Engage track, they will be expected to take an Engage course as part of their programme.

The exchange is additional to the requirements of your LSE degree. Having completed the year at SGH Warsaw School of Economics, you will then return to LSE to study the final year of your programme. Your year overseas will not count towards your final degree classification at LSE, but you will be issued with a separate transcript providing details of your results.



SGH Warsaw School of Economics has accommodation available on a first come first served basis. 


Warsaw, being a big metropolitan city, offers numerous possibilities for off-campus living with accomodation available to suit most student’s budget.


The scheme is open to all second year LSE undergraduate students (or third year BSc Philosophy, Politics and Economics students) who have been accepted onto the CIVICA Engage Track. Generally we require applicants to have passed all of their first year exams (without resits) and to have achieved a 2:1 average across their courses.
