Summer School at the London School of Economics
Summer Program Information

The internationally renowned Summer School offers over 80 three-week courses taught by LSE's world-renowned faculty.

The extensive range of courses covers the breadth of the social science expertise available at the LSE. Courses range from traditional core Economics and Finance subjects to those concerned with contemporary politics and management practice. Whichever course you choose will provide you with a valuable contribution to your chosen field, whether it be studying for a degree or in your professional career.

The programme is based on regular undergraduate courses taught at LSE and therefore you will find the courses academically challenging and intellectually stimulating.

You will find that the opportunity offered by Summer School extends further than world-class teaching. The programme is a learning experience made unique by  a truly diverse mix of participants drawn from over 80 countries and with an eclectic range of backgrounds. Whilst many participants are current graduate or undergraduate students, the programme attracts significant professional representation. We regularly host representatives from the United Nations, European Union, and leading international banks.

Lecturers are experts in their chosen fields and committed to providing the very best traditional rigour with contemporary relevance. Our faculty are actively involved in academic research and  many act as advisers and consultants to companies and Government bodies. Most of our teaching is located in our award winning building, Clement House.

All Summer School participants are considered part of the wider LSE community and are afforded the same rights and privileges as regular students, so you will quickly feel integrated into the heart of the School.  There is an organised social programme affording opportunity to meet and relax with your course teachers and fellow participants. The atmosphere around campus is convivial and interactive, you may develop friendships which will last well beyond the programme.

Information About Courses

Students interested in a more immersive, academically-rich experience should consider the year-long program. Students in this program have access to more than 250 courses offered at the university, with a range of social science subjects.

Courses at the School are year-long in duration, with teaching taking place in the fall and spring terms, and examinations in the summer term. The year-long structure means that students are able to cover topics in considerably more depth and breadth than in an equivalent single-semester course. General Course students will take four courses (or equivalent half-unit courses). These courses will include lectures and smaller discussions, and students are expected to pursue independent study as well.

Students can join any of LSE’s 200 social, political and cultural clubs and societies. The university also organizes various social events for year-long students throughout the year. All study abroad students are guaranteed a place in one of LSE’s central London residences.
