As a student at the London School of Economics you will study in the heart of a multicultural city alongside students from across the world. Major cultural attractions such as theatreland, the West End, the Royal Opera House, the British Library and British Museum are right on your doorstep. Whether you are into art, architecture, dance, film, music, theatre, sport, shopping or even green spaces and the great outdoors, London really does have it all.
Spend your summer at a world-class institution. Courses taught during the Summer School are based on regular LSE undergraduate courses, and taught to the same standards by leading LSE faculty. Lecturers are experts in their chosen fields and committed to teaching with academic rigour and contemporary relevance. Our faculty are actively involved in academic research and many act as advisers and consultants to companies and Government bodies.
At LSE you will be given the chance to interact with students from a diverse range of backgrounds and cultures, both in and out of class. You will be exposed to a variety of insights and opinions, and form friendships and networks that span the globe. In 2011 LSE welcomed more than 4,400 students from over 115 countries.
LSE Summer School offers over 60 three-week courses taught in English by LSE's world-renowned faculty. All courses take place on the main campus in the heart of London. Each session consists of one course, worth 3 S/N Carlson School International Business (IBUS 5100) credits.

The course list is available on the LSE website.
LSE Summer School students have the opportunity to book accommodation in LSE's Halls of Residence, where regular year LSE students live while studying.
