LSE Online Application System
Welcome to LSE's Graduate Application System. Once you start your application, you will become an 'Applicant in progress' - you will find all sorts of useful information and advice in that section of our website. You should use this system to submit your application form and all your supporting documents, including your references and administration fee.Please make sure you have read the advice on our website before starting your application.
Please read carefully the instructions on each tab and check out the tool tips for help with individual questions/sections. You will be able to submit your application once you have supplied everything we need.
Advance notice of closure period: Each year our application form closes for essential updates and maintenance. This year the closure dates will be 16 September - 1 October inclusive. If you intend to apply for an executive programme for entry in December 2017, you must EITHER complete your application, including submission of both your references, before the closure period begins (ie by 5pm BST on Friday 15 September), OR wait until the new application becomes available on 2 October and apply then.
You should only submit an application via this system ONCE in the application cycle (October 2016 – September 2017). If you submit a duplicate application using a different email address we will match it to your previous record. You may be liable to pay an additional administration fee of £35 to be considered for additional choices, and we will not refund any payment made via the online application. To be considered for additional choices if you were unsuccessful initially, please do not use this application: you should use the New Choices form here.
Once your application is submitted you will become an 'Applicant under consideration' and any changes to your application must be made via our How Do I…? pages.
LSE expects all applicants to complete their application materials without the use of:
- paid agents
- credentials services
- other paid professional assistance
The use of such services may lead to the rejection of application materials, the revocation of an admissions offer, cancellation of admission, or involuntary withdrawal from the university.
