Outbound PhD Student Exchange

Information for outbound PhD student exchanges 

The Global Opportunities LSE (GO LSE) team coordinates the PhD Mobility Scheme which enables students to visit one of our partners while working on their project.

More about the PhD mobility scheme

This scheme enables LSE PhD students to undertake research for two to three months at one of the institutional partners listed below.

It offers our research students a wonderful opportunity to visit another institution, to benefit from additional research resources (archival and advisory) and to experience the academic culture and professional networks of another country. Successful applicants may also work on related publications/presentations, or attend conferences and workshops both at the host institution and within the wider national academic community. 


Where can I study? 

Students interested in applying for visits taking place during the 2022-2023 academic year can apply to visit the following partners : 

  • European University Institute
  • Central European University
  • Sciences Po 

PhD Academy

The PhD Academy hosts a number of workshops with in house professional writers but also outside providers. They will keep you informed of funding opportunities and are located on the fourth foor of the library. 

Your departement may have a specific exchange scheme, like Anthropology with Columbia. For more information contact your doctoral programme director and/or your doctoral administrator, a full list is available here.
