The London School of Economics and Political Science specialises in the social sciences and is the UK’s most international university, with half of its 10,000 students currently enrolled international. LSE is also part of the prestigious Russell Group, an organisation who represent 24 of the UK’s leading universities.
The London School of Economics prides itself on its student body being amongst the most academic and determined in the country, with the library at LSE – the largest in the world devoted to social sciences - currently holding a borrow rate which is four times that of the national average. Graduates from the University also enjoy some of the best starting salaries and employment rates upon graduation.
16 Nobel Prize winners have been staff or studied at the London School of Economics, and it regularly features at the top of league tables both nationally and internationally.
With around two-thirds of London School of Economics students arriving from outside the UK, it is among the most multicultural universities in the world. Because of this, the LSE is well placed to welcome, look after and offer the best advice and assistance possible for all new international starters.
The advice team at the Student Services Centre can provide information about all administrative services relating to courses and assessment, examinations, ceremonies and financial support.

LSE’s outstanding contribution to social science research was again recognised by the 2021 Research Excellence Framework (REF). LSE is shown as the top university (of multiple submissions) in the UK based on the proportion of ‘world-leading’ (4*) research produced. LSE is also the joint second-ranking university in the UK overall when considering research outputs, research impact and research environment.
The London School of Economics guarantees all first-year students a place in University Halls, provided you apply by the May deadline. A wider range of accommodation is available through its partner institutions in the University of London, and the Accommodation Office can assist you in finding the most affordable and suitable housing during your stay.
The London School of Economics and Political Science is centrally located in London, just a short walk from Covent Garden and the Thames River. London is served by five international airports, all of which are less than an hour away via the city’s numerous train stations.
London’s vast selection of museums, galleries, parks and other attractions, many of them free of charge, ensure that LSE students will never grow bored in one of the world’s most dynamic cities. The location of the university also presents the opportunity for internships and career networking at the 100’s of world class organisations based in the city, and the university’s excellent reputation and relationships with these companies ensures plenty of chances to make your mark.
My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
