How to Get Accepted at LSE

Posted on November 21, 2019 by Kritika Gadhvi  | Academics | Blog

The London School of Economics and Political Science is one of the most acclaimed higher education institutions in the world, renowned for offering a world-class, cutting-edge curriculum in Economics, Management, Finance and Social Sciences. Acceptance of your application to study at LSE is a golden opportunity that can only lead to brilliant future prospects.

However, with the top talent of the world competing for a limited number of seats, getting into LSE is a tough nut to crack.

For an LSE aspirant, the most important thing to bear in mind is that the earlier you start preparing your college application, the better chances you have of getting that coveted acceptance letter in the mail. If you are applying for an undergraduate programme, ensure that over the years, you have not only excelled academically but have also been an active participant in extra and co-curricular activities at school. LSE has a thriving student life, therefore, if you have dabbled in various other activities other than studies, it’s going to stand you in good stead.

For students applying for the graduate programmes (or postgraduate programmes, as we call them in India), you have a buffer of 3 years of undergraduate college to build the perfect application! Achieving consistently good grades at college examinations is, of course, a necessary requisite for a good application. However, apart from being a start student, your involvement in the college societies, associations with causes outside the college, part-time work experiences and internships with firms and companies that are in line with your career and course interest – all these activities work in your favour and demonstrate you as a confident, diverse and a pragmatic personality.

Undertaking internships, work opportunities, taking up a hobby that you are passionate about or simply working with a cause that you care about creates a bank of experiences for you. This bank, over the years, gives you concrete material and vision to write your statement of purpose. The SOP is your voice to the admissions committee since there are no interviews. This is the only chance you get to show the selectors why you deserve a chance to be a student at LSE.

During the entire application process, it’s also important to remember that al LSE programmes are highly rigorous and intense. They require a lot of prework year-round. Though LSE offers numerous resources that help make your time at LSE easier and seamless, the teaching and learning process is in stark contrast with the Indian institutions which can be quite challenging for most students. The experience, though, is extremely rewarding, with the courses and the application-oriented curricula training your mind to think analytically and solve real-world problems.

While most students aspire to study in at LSE’s campus in London, it might not always be possible due to the cut-throat competition for the limited seats and other reasons like finances and personal limitations. As an institution, LSE believes in providing access to students all over the world to its education, and therefore, has designed various routes, such as the LSE Summer School, through which students can get the LSE experience.

Further, it has collaborated with teaching centres all across the world to teach its curriculum. For instance, in India, the Indian School of Business & Finance teaches undergraduate and graduate programmes in Economics, Management, Finance and Data Science from the London School of Economics. This essentially means that the students enrolling at ISBF receive an LSE education and a University of London degree. The courses are designed, examined and assessed by LSE and the students here are exposed to the same teaching standards as at LSE.

This is one of the most attractive ways to pursue an LSE education for Indian students. Live local, study global!
