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. 

Appointments can be booked via the Student Hub, and are available Monday - Friday, 10am - 6pm (London Time, GMT +1). We currently offer sessions online, via Microsoft Teams, and on campus in LSE LIFE Workspace 1.

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, or if you have difficulties making use of this resource, please contact us by email at, or stop by the LSE LIFE reception on the ground floor of the Library.  If there has been a cancellation, we are sometimes able to arrange a short meeting on the same day where you can check in with a study adviser with a quick question.

To help ensure academic integrity during the summer exam period, please note:

  • during the exam period from 7 May to 14 June, you may not share any text or send any files to discuss in your one-to-one chat.
  • if you have a 24-hour online exam, you may not have an appointment during your exam.

LSE LIFE does not provide proofreading services. We can talk with you about how you can learn to proofread your own work better, though! The Language Centre offers a paid proofreading service, as do other service providers.
