Celebrating its 26th year in 2014, it is one of the largest university summer schools in Europe.
The Summer School programme offers over 70 intensively taught top-level three-week courses, in Accounting, Finance, Law, Economics, Management and International Relations.
Based on regular undergraduate courses taught at LSE and instructed by leading international faculty, the programme provides a unique learning experience and is the perfect enhancement to a degree or professional development.
LSE Summer School courses are full-time, intensive programmes, and consist of at least 48 contact hours over the three- week period, generally taking the form of 36 hours of lectures and 12 hours of tutorial or seminar-based classes.
Due to the intensive nature of the programme, students are expected to spend a full day on campus. Lectures are attended by all students on the course, and take place either in the morning (10am - 1pm) or afternoon (2pm - 5pm), at the same
time each day. They are supplemented by small one hour classes, during the following afternoon or morning. These are an opportunity to work through problem sets or case studies, or present and discuss seminar papers. In addition, students are recommended to spend 2-3 hours per day in self-guided study.
Timetables are issued at the beginning of the programme. It is not possible to know the expected hours of a particular course before the programme starts. It is not possible to change either the lecture time or the allocated class time, however course changes are permitted within the first two days of the session.
