Global Opportunities

Find how and where to broaden your horizons 

Over the years, LSE has developed a number of multi-faceted partnerships with prestigious universities abroad. With some institutions we have dual and double degrees as well as faculty mobility schemes; with others we have developed unique opportunities for our undergraduate students.

LSE has a range of double/dual degrees and exchanges. For more details, read the sections below.

Double degree programmes

Double degree programmes are normally of two years' duration with students studying one year at LSE and one year at the partner institution. Upon successful completion of the programme, a student is awarded a master's degree or equivalent from both institutions.
