Religious Holidays

If, due to the observance of a religious holiday, you are unable to sit examinations on specific dates, you should email the exams team as soon as possible, and before the publication of the course by course timetable, to discuss possible arrangements. Please include the following information:

  • your name
  • your student ID number
  • the courses you are taking
  • the dates on which you are unable to attend examinations
  • details of your exceptional circumstances

Please note that events such as weddings or other personal appointments do not constitute exceptional reasons for examination timetabling purposes.

Ramadan Observance

Ramadan will overlap with the LSE exam period in 2018. Specific guidance will be issued closer to the time.

For general guidance read Ramadan Observance during summer 2017 exams.

Daily Arrangements
for IEAs and Late entrants

Daily exam arrangements, for candidates with individual exam arrangements and late entrants, are available from the Individual Examination Adjustments & Late Entries web page.

For the LLB resit period these arrangements will be included in your personal timetable.

Working at the end of your studies

If you have a student visa, you can work part time during your studies and full time during the vacation. The vacation time starts after the official term end date, not after your final exam. If you are a one year Masters student and have to submit a dissertation, your vacation time starts after the official end of your programme in September. 

More details about working at the end of your studies are available from the LSE International Student Visa Advice Team.
