Overview

Undergraduate study at LSE is designed for students who are keen to engage critically with their chosen discipline and who want to apply their learning to real world situations. This means you’ll be taught core theory related to your programme of study alongside specialist disciplinary and research skills, and have opportunities to use those skills in real world contexts as you progress through your degree. 

You’ll be exposed to state-of-the-art social sciences research, often through teaching from the very academics who have carried out that research. You’ll have opportunities to participate in projects, discussions and events that are part of LSE’s daily intellectual life. 

Whichever degree programme you choose, you’ll have access to a range of support, both within your department and beyond. This will enable you to make the most of your LSE education and help equip you, professionally and personally, for whatever you do after you graduate.

Our degrees

Our degrees are intended to provide students with a sound intellectual background rather than professional training. LSE graduates go on to a range of careers which are rarely restricted by the choice of degree subject. Success in your degree and in your subsequent career is best achieved by choosing subjects that interest you and that you are good at.

Financial support

We recognise that the cost of living in London may be higher than in your home town or country. That’s one of the reasons we provide such generous funding for undergraduate students. Help isn’t limited to UK students. Our funding is available to eligible UK, EU and overseas students. You may also be able to apply for funding from your own government.

How to apply

You need to make your application through UCAS. We don’t consider applications made in any other way.
