We welcome applications from all qualified prospective students and seek to recruit individuals with the very best academic merit, potential and motivation, irrespective of their background. We carefully consider each application on an individual basis, based on the full set of information presented on the UCAS application form, including an applicant’s academic record, subject combination, educational circumstances, teacher’s reference and personal statement.
How to apply
All applicants who wish to study at LSE must apply through UCAS. We do not accept any direct applications.
Although UCAS allow students from outside of the EU to apply up to the end of June, given the competition for places at LSE ALL applicants are strongly advised to submit their UCAS application by the 25 January 2023 deadline.
It's rare that we will have places remaining on our programmes after the January deadline.
Please see our How to apply guidance.
Our entry requirements vary by programme, and are listed on the individual undergraduate degree programme webpages.
Our usual standard offer and entry requirements are listed in terms of A-levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB), however we accept a wide range of international qualifications. Please visit our Information for international students page to check country specific entry requirements.
If your qualification is not listed, please contact us.
Applicants applying with certain qualifications may be asked to sit our Undergraduate Admissions Assessment (UGAA) before a final decision can be made on their application. The Admissions team will invite applicants to take the assessment if is required.
If you are made an offer you may have to provide evidence of your English language proficiency, although you don't need to provide this at the time of application.
