Religious Observance

If, due to the observance of a religious holiday, you are unable to sit exams on specific dates, you should contact 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 exams
  • details of your religious observance (you may be asked to provide a supporting letter from a religious leader)

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

The Holy month of Ramadan will overlap with the LSE Summer Exam Period in 2020/2021. Guidance about sitting exams during Ramadan can be be found here.

Arrangements for Central Exam Adjustments

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.
