Program Description:
Study abroad in the heart of London at the world's leading social science institution.

The General Course at LSE is a fully integrated year of undergraduate study in one of the most vibrant, diverse and historical cities in the world. General Course students may study any combination of the 250+ undergraduate courses taught at the School, in disciplines as varied as Anthropology, Geography and Social Policy.

Our study abroad students are guaranteed a room in our central London student accommodation, and are fully integrated, both in terms of our accommodation and teaching, with our undergraduate students, around half of whom come from over 140 countries outside the UK.

In addition to the 200 clubs and societies run by the LSE Students' Union, we offer a tailored calendar of social events and subsidised weekend trips to European destinations, exclusively for our study abroad students.

What we study

LSE offers a unique opportunity to study the social sciences in a university with a worldwide academic reputation, while enjoying the cultural, social and recreational facilities of one of the world's great capital cities. The focus of our teaching is on helping you learn some of the different ways to test your - and other people's - ideas and, in the words of our motto, rerum cognoscere causas, "to understand the causes of things".

The School offers courses not only in economics and political science, but also in the full spectrum of social science subjects, taught within a range of academic departments and interdisciplinary institutes.

Academic Departments

Students joining the General Course are assigned to one of the 16 academic departments that offer undergraduate degrees, and which together teach more than 250 courses.
However, General Course students may study any combination of undergraduate courses across our academic departments, and their host department need not reflect their major interest.
