All applications are made online, and all supporting documentation may be uploaded with your application.
You do not need to complete the form in one sitting; you can return to your partially completed application by logging in to the system using the email address and password you created at the start of the process.
Please note, your application will not be processed until we have received all the required documents for the programme(s) you have applied to.
If you are unable to complete an online application because of a disability or medical condition please email firstname.lastname@example.org
You are strongly advised to apply early as competition for programmes at LSE is intense. The most popular courses will start to fill up in March each year, and once a course is filled we cannot accept any more applications.
The application process begins in October every year and as we operate a rolling admission process for the vast majority of our courses, continues until the programme has allocated all of its places.
Applying early will also allow time for you to make the necessary arrangements for accommodation and funding should you be offered a place.
Please note, some programmes (e.g. some MPhil/PhD and MRes/PhD) do have deadlines for applications. These are published on the programme pages and the availability of programmes page.
Before applying please check the availability of programmes page to ensure the programme is still accepting applications.
Please note, there is no clearing and we do not accept applications once a course is closed - we have built-in mechanisms to take account of late drop-outs.
