Applicants should have completed at least two years of university-level study, to include the year immediately preceding entry to the programme, at an institution located outside the United Kingdom by the time they begin studying on the General Course.
However, we will also consider, on a case-by-case basis, applications from students who have directly entered the second year of university on the basis of A-levels or the International Baccalaureate Diploma, with grades that fulfil LSE’s requirements for entry to an undergraduate degree programme. Students who have directly entered their second year on the basis of Advanced Placement exams will not normally be considered for a place.
Students undertaking a degree through the University of London International Programmes with LSE as the lead college are eligible for entry to the General Course after just one year of study. You must have achieved a minimum of 60% across 3 modules, and a pass in the fourth module.
