Making Requests

You can request information about yourself by completing the Data Protection Form

Send the completed form to the School’s Data Protection Officer at You will need to include:

  • Scanned copy of any of the following proof of ID: LSE student card, staff card, passport, driving licence or UK birth certificate. 
  • If someone is applying on your behalf, please supply (in addition to evidence of your identity) a signed statement that authorises us to release the requested data to them. This can also be scanned.

The form can also be used to request that information about you is updated, changed or deleted or to restrict further processing of your data, to object to marketing and automated processing.

Once all the appropriate proof along with the form have been received, the School has one month from the date of receipt to respond with what information we have that meets your request. However, it may take longer depending on the complexity and number of the requests. If we will need more time to process your request, we will inform you as soon as possible.
