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 +1). All of our 25-minute sessions are currently taking place online via Microsoft Teams, and can be booked up to 7 days in advance.

We're running one-to-one sessions throughout Easter break and Summer Term. To help ensure academic integrity during the exam period, please note:

  • during the exam period from 10 May to 18 June, you may not share any text or send any files to discuss in your one-to-one chat.
  • If you have an exam lasting 24 hours or less, you may not have an appointment during the 24 hour period of your exam.

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 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.
