The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is a world-renowned university specialising in the social sciences. Its campus can be found in the centre of London, a global hub for political, commercial and cultural activity.
The university is unique in its academic focus on social science and has a wide range of postgraduate taught and research courses for students to choose from, offered across 29 different academic departments and institutes.
LSE has been providing education in the social sciences since 1895, offering today’s learners over 125 years of expertise as a result. The university continues to invest in its campus, and in 2021 was accredited as the first carbon natural university anywhere in the UK.
LSE has an international reputation which is supported by its continued performance in social sciences and management, with the school being rated 3rd in the world for those subjects (QS World and Subject Rankings 2022).
The university has a history of achievement, counting 18 Nobel prize winners and 37 world leaders amongst its alumni. By choosing to study at LSE, students will be joining an expansive network of 165,000 alumni across 200 countries.
Students at LSE will live in the heart of London during their studies. The city is a focal point for economic and research activity at national and international levels, so students will be able to access a wide range of professional and academic opportunities in the UK capital.
Student life in London offers LSE students an almost unlimited number of cultural, entertainment and nightlife activities to choose from, which are all easily accessible from the university’s compact city campus and its nearby halls of residence.
