About the London School of Economics
The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is a place of genuine intellectual excitement and cutting-edge research, employing many of the world's leading experts in their fields and attracting the very best students from across the globe. The General Course offers you a unique opportunity to experience all that LSE and the great city of London have to offer, whilst undertaking a year of fully integrated undergraduate study at the world's leading dedicated social science institution.

In one of the world’s most international cities, students will encounter cultural diversity in all aspects of their daily lives. They can enjoy the offerings of the LSE Student Union, bookshops in the shadow of St. Paul’s Cathedral, cultural events at the Barbican, or Sunday markets in Greenwich.
