The essential General Course

A simple guide to the most important facts

  • LSE offers no single semester study options; you spend a full academic year at the School

  • You must have completed at least two years of university level study prior to joining LSE (unless studying on the University of London External Programme).

  • If you wish to study qualitative courses (eg, government, management, law) you should have a GPA of 3.3 or above. If you wish to study quantitative subjects (eg, economics, mathematics, statistics) you should have a GPA of 3.5 or above in related subjects. Your grades should put you in the top 10-15 per cent of your class

  • If your two years of university education prior to joining LSE haven’t been undertaken in English, you are required to provide evidence of your proficiency in the English language

  • You choose courses from a list of over 250 but need only take one from the department to which you are assigned (two if in Economics). Your departmental choice need not reflect your major interest

  • Applications can be submitted either on paper or online

  • Applications are considered from January 2011 onwards and will continue to be looked at until all the available places have been filled. The deadline for receipt of applications is 2 September 2011

  • There is no application fee when applying directly to the School

  • Three LSE General Course Scholarships, worth £7,000 each, are available to all accepted students.

  • University housing is guaranteed to all General Course students.
