London School of Economics Business Management

London School of Economics and Political Science  April 18, 2020 – 08:23 pm
  • Founded by Fabians, Beatrice and Sidney Webb, Graham Wallas and George Bernard Shaw in 1895 to specialise in the advanced study of the social sciences.
  • Subjects pioneered at LSE include anthropology, criminology, international relations, social psychology and sociology.
  • LSE has produced 35 world leaders and heads of state, and 16 Nobel Prize winners in economics, peace and literature.
  • 37 past or present world leaders have studied or taught at LSE and 31 current members of the UK House of Commons and 42 members of the House of Lords have also either taught or studied at LSE.

Location and Transport

  • Located in the heart of central London, LSE's departments and institutes are concentrated on one campus.
  • Communication and travel links are excellent, with access to multiple bus routes and tube stations.

Entry Requirements

  • LSE welcomes applications from students with the best academic potential, from around the world and irrespective of background.
  • Excellent grades at A level (including A* for some subjects) are required in traditional academic subjects plus good GCSE grades.
  • Our standard minimum A level entry requirements range from AAB to A*AA.
  • LSE believes that AS levels offer significant benefits, both for the student and for universities. Our evidence indicates that AS levels are an effective indicator of performance at undergraduate level and for this reason we continue to use AS grades (and in some cases the associated UMS scores) in our admissions assessments.
  • We recommend that, wherever possible, students sit AS level examinations at the end of year 12. These AS results will help the LSE selectors better assess the application in a fair, consistent and transparent manner and will ensure that more subjective indicators of academic potential such as predicted grades are less important factors in the decision making process.
  • LSE understands that there will be some schools and colleges that are unable to teach AS levels alongside the new linear A levels and we will not disadvantage students who submit an application without AS level grades as a result. In these circumstances we will use the information presented on the application form to make our decision (possibly in conjunction with some form of additional assessment).

  • New areas of study are frequently introduced to keep pace with changes in the social sciences.
