Study skills support Throughout the academic year, there is a popular series of open lectures beginning with an introduction to Study at LSE and continuing with topics including essay writing, effective reading, preparing for quantitative tests and exam preparation. If you need more personalised support for any subject, the Teaching and Learning Centre offers one-to-one advice sessions with experienced study advisers.

Teachers and academic advisers For guidance about a particular class, there is the individual class teacher, and a teacher responsible for each course (who guides the class teachers). Each student has an academic adviser, who meets with you several times over the course of the year, receives regular reports from class teachers, and is able to advise on your progress. The academic adviser is also there to help with any academic, administrative or personal questions where you may not be sure who is the person or office responsible. Each department also has a Departmental
Tutor responsible for the day to-day running of undergraduate studies in the department and all members of academic staff set aside specified times when they are free to see any student.
Associate Dean for the General Course
In addition to your class teachers and an academic adviser, the Associate Dean for the General Course is available to deal with any academic, administrative or pastoral support issues you might have. These can include advice on housing, particular course choices, changing departmental affiliation and support for credit transfers to your home university. The Associate Dean also offers orientation seminars covering topics such as the grading system, academic progression and internships and careers. You are encouraged to contact the Associate Dean whenever you need assistance.
