Online Taught EMFSS students are welcome to apply to the 2nd year of entry of a relevant undergraduate degree at LSE. Please bear in mind that transfer is not automatic and admission is highly competitive as a limited number of places are available for both first and second year entries.
As a brief idea, generally departments would usually ask for an average of 60% in the diploma/degree foundation courses with at least 60% in three of the courses and a good pass in the fourth.
Another requirement for second year entry is that the courses taken via University of London Programmes (EMFSS) match the content of the first year of the internal LSE degree you wish to transfer to as closely as possible. Courses should therefore be carefully selected. You should also pay close attention to the start date of your programme and the dates at which you will receive your course results, and how this aligns with the application deadline and start date of the LSE programme you wish to transfer to.
Applicants need to apply through UCAS in the normal way, stating that they wish to apply for second year entry.
Transfer into the second year of the International Relations, BSc Management, International History & International Relations, BA History and LLB programmes is not permitted and neither is a transfer into the third year of any LSE programme.
If you’re looking to experience learning with LSE without transferring, you can take advantage of further opportunities to study at LSE, both on campus and online.
