Financial Support Drop-In Sessions

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 your enquiry will take longer we may need to arrange a separate meeting with you, outside of the Drop-in Session times. 

We will be operating  Drop-in Sessions with a ‘waiting room’ – this will allow us to assist everyone on a first-come-first-serve basis. 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. The Fees Office can assist with 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 contact details can be found here.
