LSE and Sciences Po launched an undergraduate exchange scheme in the 2011-12 academic year. This student mobility scheme enables up to 10 undergraduate students from each institution to study at the other for one academic year thus enhancing their study experience and potential career prospects. For LSE students the year at Sciences Po is in addition to the requirements of their LSE award.
All LSE students who are currently in the second year of their undergraduate programme plus undergraduate PPE students in their third year are able to apply to this school-wide undergraduate Erasmus exchange programme to spend a full year at Sciences Po.
Information sessions are generally held in the Michaelmas term, for more detailed information on the application process and the deadline, click here.
Other undergraduate exchanges
In addition to the two School-wide undergraduate exchanges listed above, some departments (Anthropology and Management) also offer their own exchanges.
The Department of Anthropology runs a Year Abroad Programme with the University of Melbourne. This Year Abroad programme has been running since 2016. The programme is for one academic year taken between Year 2 and Year 3 of the BA/BSc in Social Anthropology degree. There are around 2-3 student exchange places open to LSE Department of Anthropology students each year. Students interested in studying at the University of Melbourne are required to submit their Year Abroad application during the second year of their degree. Planned course selections form one part of the application and LSE Anthropology students are required to take at least 50% of their full load study in Anthropology programs at the University of Melbourne.

The Department of Management offers a BSc Management during which students have the opportunity to apply for an exchange year abroad. The exchange year takes place between the second and third year of the programme. The current exchange partners include the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania (USA), University of Michigan Ross School of Business (USA), University of St Gallen (Switzerland), HEC Paris (France), Bocconi University (Italy), and HKUST Business School (Hong Kong). Exchange places are limited and subject to a competitive application process during the second year of the BSc Management programme.
