The London School of Economics and Political Science is a public research university located in London, England and a constituent college of the federal University of London. Founded in 1895 by Fabian Society members Sidney Webb, Beatrice Webb, Graham Wallas, and George Bernard Shaw, LSE joined the University of London in 1900 and established its first degree courses under the auspices of the university in 1901. LSE began awarding its degrees in its own name in 2008, prior to which it awarded degrees of the University of London. It became a university in its own right within the University of London in 2022.
The General Course is LSE’s study abroad programme. It allows students from overseas universities to spend a full academic year at LSE. The university doesn’t offer any single semester/term options, largely due to the fact that most of modules span the full year, but also because university feels you need at least a year to get the most out of LSE and London! During your year at LSE you will have access to a full calendar of social events, specially designed and subsidised exclusively for General Course students. LSE is just one of many reasons to choose London, the best student city in the world.
You will be joining a culturally diverse population of 11,000 students, around 70% of whom join us from outside the UK, representing over 140 countries.
As a General Course student, you’ll be able to choose a combination of courses from more than 300 available covering the full range of social science subjects. You’ll have access to a range of resources to make the most of your studies, including the world-renowned British Library of Political and Economic Science.
Furthermore, as a fully integrated undergraduate student you will become an LSE alumnus after completing your year of study abroad, which will give you access to a range of benefits and a lifelong association with the School.
