All Social Policy Courses are ‘Controlled Access’.  

Other than for students in the first category below, when applying for a course all students are required to provide a statement explaining why they wish to take that course. Statements are considered by the Course Convenor and, where merited by the statement, places are awarded in the following priority order: 

1)   Students for whom the course is a ‘core course’ on their Programme Regulations (these students should already be allocated to the course in LSE for you). 

2)   Students for whom the course appears as an ‘optional core course’ on their Programme Regulations (where students have to choose between a small number of core options). 

3)   Students for whom the course appears as an optional course on their Programme Regulations 

4)   Other Social Policy students 

5)   LSE students from Departments other than Social Policy 

NB: Students should be aware that other departments may operate differently. If Social Policy students wish to take courses taught outside the Department of Social Policy, they are advised to check with the department(s) concerned regarding their course place allocation process.

Students should note that no places will be offered on Social Policy Courses until 1pm on the Monday following the opening of Course Selection.
