What LSE courses are available to Intercollegiate students?
This will be determined on a case-by-case basis and will depend on a number of factors, including but not limited to, the number of students currently enrolled on the course and the previous study that the prospective intercollegiate student has undertaken.
Please see the Academic Departments web page for details on the subject areas taught at LSE. The individual course guides for undergraduate and postgraduate students will provide detailed information on every course offered at the School, including the method(s) by which they are assessed.
Intercollegiate students who wish to take an undergraduate course in the LSE Department of Economics should first consult Undergraduate Programmes.
How can I find out when the courses in which I am interested will be taught?
The timetables website provides the times and locations of every course taught in the current academic year.
How do I obtain the approval of the LSE academic teaching the course I would like to study?
You need to make contact with the academic directly and arrange a time for them to sign the form.
Many LSE buildings have restricted access, so it is advisable to make your initial enquiries regarding intercollegiate study by email.
The department teaching the course in which you are interested will have contact details on their website to which you can address your initial query.
Will I have to pay a tuition fee to the LSE for taking an intercollegiate course?
No, your home institution will agree to pay LSE's tuition fee on your behalf.
When and where can I collect my LSE card?
You can collect your LSE card from the Student Services Centre. Please see LSE Cards above for details of when you can collect your card. If you come outside of these times you will not be able to collect your card.
When you come to collect your ID card you will also need to formally register for study at the School. To do this, you will need to bring your passport and any visa documentation (including your BRP card if you are on a Tier 4 Visa). You will need to bring your passport even if you are not studying on a Visa, and are a UK/EEA student.
Why do I need an LSE card?
Your LSE card will provide access to School buildings, including the Library, and act as your library card. You will not be able to access LSE buildings until your LSE card has been issued.
Will I get an LSE email account?
All intercollegiate students will have access to an LSE email account and the LSE IT network. Once your application has been processed, you will be able to activate your IT account by following the instructions at Key Information for New Students. This will also allow you to create a login for the School’s online portal, LSE for You.
Providing we receive your completed application documents by 16 September 2019, you will be able to activate your IT account from 27 September 2019.
How can I access my timetable?
Intercollegiate student timetables will be available via LSE for You.
What happens if I fail an assessment?
It might be possible to fail an assessment but still pass the course overall depending on your other marks in those other assessments. Where you fail an overall course your Home Institution will first need to determine if you are eligible for a resit according to their programme rules and regulations. If they determine to allow you a resit your Home Institution will notify the LSE’s Student Services Centre who will re-enter you for that course. You will not resit/resubmit any assessment you have passed but your mark from a pass assessment will be banked and included to calculate your resit mark.
The undergraduate resit/resubmission period will take place in August 2020. Postgraduate students will resit/resubmit during the course of the next academic year.
