One-to-one sessions

LSE LIFE Study Advisers

LSE LIFE study advisers are available to talk with you about key skills like reading, making notes, essay writing, research, exam revision, managing your time and other study-related matters. 

Sessions can be booked via the Student Hub, and are available Monday - Friday, 8am - 8pm (London Time, GMT), from 4 January. All of our 30-minute sessions are currently taking place online via Microsoft Teams.

Bookings open one week in advance and we're currently offering about 30 appointments every day. If you find no appointments available to book in the coming week, please contact us by email In order to ensure that personalised advice is available to as many students as possible, we ask that you do not book more than one appointment per day with a Study Adviser.  

Please note, from 11-15 January, to help ensure academic integrity during the exam period, we are not able to share or exchange any texts or files during our one-to-one appointments.  This applies to texts related to a 24-hour online exam, a longer online assessment, or any other summative work, including dissertation. Additionally, you may not have an appointment during any of your 24-hour online exams.

Research ethics team

Does your research involve human participants or personal data through which individuals could be identified? If so, you’ll need to think about ethics of working with participants, informed consent, and protecting data.
