The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is known worldwide for its concentration on teaching and research across the full range of the social, political and economic sciences. It is a real-life laboratory for analyzing and evaluating social, political and economic ideas before sending them around the globe.
More than half of LSE’s students come from outside Britain, which helps infuse the university environment with fresh ideas and new perspectives. This urban university takes full advantage of its setting in central London, with close ties to business, law, and media in the city.
