Program Description:

The London School of Economics and Political Science

LSE Library

LSE offers a unique opportunity to study the social sciences in a university institution with a worldwide academic reputation, while enjoying the cultural, social and recreational facilities of one of the world's greatest capital cities. Many influential developments in thinking about society, economics and politics have originated in work done here, including the basis of the modern welfare state and the development of free-market economics.

Debate on the proper place of the state in the promotion of prosperity and welfare has been a recurrent theme throughout LSE's history. LSE aims to be the place where these issues, and the solutions to the questions they pose, are debated. These include: intensifying globalisation; the changing nature of the nation state; new opportunities and problems for global business; the transformation of world financial markets; the emergence of new ethnic divisions and conflicts; shifts in geopolitical power; the impact of climate change. We study not only British areas of interest but also those of other countries, many of them in a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective. Few institutions in the world are as truly international as LSE.

LSE Summer School offers over 60 three-week courses taught by LSE's world-renowned faculty. All courses take place on our campus in the heart of Central London.

Courses can often be taken for credit towards degrees at other institutions, and are examined to LSE standards. Summer School courses are drawn from across the university, and are divided into six subject areas:

Accounting and Finance
English Language
International Relations, Government & Society

Course Levels

100 level courses (e.g. AF101, IR160) are equivalent to introductory level university courses. They have no specific prerequisites in their own subject but may require some mathematics or other related subjects.

200 level courses (e.g. IR201, EC260) are equivalent to intermediate level university courses. They have prerequisites in the form of university level introductory courses in the same, or a closely related, subject.

300 level courses (EC351, AF360) are advanced and equivalent to either final year undergraduate or first year graduate courses. They have prerequisites of university level intermediate courses.


While abroad, students continue to pay their Case tuition rather than the tuition at their new institution. In addition there are several expenses students’ financial aid can potentially help to fund. These are listed in the attachment below.
