Financial Support Drop-In Sessions

Michaelmas, Lent and Summer Terms 2020/21

The Financial Support Office holds regular Drop-in Sessions where a designated member of staff is available to answer student queries.

Prior to contacting us or attending a Drop-in Session it is highly recommended that you review the information on our current student web pages. If after exploring the information you still wish to speak to a member of the team, please do attend one of our Zoom Drop-in Sessions.

Drop-in Sessions 

We hold Zoom Drop-in Sessions to answer any questions currents students have about funding. We hold two types of Drop-in Sessions: one for General Queries and one specifically for PhD Funded students. Full details of both Financial Support Office Drop-in Sessions can be found below.

Drop-in Sessions are offered with a maximum time limit of 10 minutes; if you feel your enquiry will take longer it is recommended that you email us and we can arrange a longer meeting with you. 

We will be operating these meetings with a ‘waiting room’ – this will allow us to assist everyone on a first-come-first-serve basis in the same way that the drop-ins were run on campus. If you have not done so already, we encourage you to download Zoom in advance of attending the Drop-in Session. 

Please note the Fees Office within the Fees, Income and Credit Control Team (FICC) are separate to the Financial Support Office. Fees Office Drop-in Sessions can cover the following:

- All queries relating to the payment of LSE tuition fees

- Tuition fee refunds

- Sponsor invoicing

- US or Canadian student loans

Information on the Fees Office Drop-in Session can be found here
