London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)
LSE is the world’s leading dedicated social science institution, with many departments achieving the highest ratings for teaching quality and research. Situated in the heart of London, students from around 150 countries join those from all over the UK. This creates an unequalled cosmopolitan student body, bringing a diverse and challenging perspective to graduate study in the social sciences.
LSE offers 140 taught graduate (MSc) programmes across 30 departments or institutes. As a 'laboratory of the social sciences', the School's academic profile spans a wide range of disciplines, from Accounting to Law, Management to Urbanisation. Graduate research degrees (MPhil/PhD) are offered by all of LSE's departments and institutes. Students are invited to submit applications that complement the academic interests of the School's staff. Entry requirements vary depending on the programme.
LSE makes over £14 million of need and merit based financial aid available to its students each year. Awards range from a contribution to tuition fees to full coverage of all expenses and are usually awarded to students from a certain country or region or to students on a specific degree programme.
