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, writing, research, exam revision, managing your time and other study-related matters. This also includes many aspects of your dissertation - planning your research, finding your narrative and structuring your writing, or just as a sounding board for any new ideas you might have.

These 30-minute sessions take place online via Microsoft Teams. Sessions are available Monday - Friday, 8am - 8pm (London Time, GMT +1), all summer long. Book a session with an LSE LIFE Study Adviser on the Student Hub

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

For undergraduate students only 

Please note that we've made a few adjustments to our one-to-one offer for undergraduates during IRDAP, from 27 July to 17 August. To help ensure academic integrity during the exam period, we are not able to share or exchange any texts or files to discuss in our one-to-one chat. This applies to texts related to a 24-hour online exam, a longer online assessment, or any other summative work, including your dissertation. Additionally, you may not have an appointment during any of your 24-hour online exams.
