This university is located in London, England. To learn more about this city and country, please visit:

The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is a world class centre for its concentration of teaching and research across the full range of the social, political and economic sciences. Founded in 1895 by Beatrice and Sidney Webb, LSE has an outstanding reputation for academic excellence. LSE is an unusual university. Few university institutions in the world are as international. The study of social, economic and political problems covers not only the UK and European Union, but also countries of every continent. From its foundation LSE has aimed to be a laboratory of the social sciences, a place where ideas are developed, analyzed, evaluated and disseminated around the globe. 


LSE guarantees university accommodation to all General Course students who have been accepted and apply for housing prior to the deadline. Participants will live in residence halls with British students who also attend LSE. Some student housing is close to the school's campus in central London while other residence halls are located in the closer suburbs. Further details can be found on LSE's website

Essential Functions of Study Abroad

OIE is committed to supporting students with disabilities who plan to embark on an international experience. Along with this one of a kind experience comes with the knowledge that there are different cultural viewpoints and legal standards for disabilities throughout the world. Contact your study abroad advisor for additional details about the essential functions of this particular study abroad program. Notify the Office of International Education and the Office of Disability Services about your accommodation needs as soon as possible, but at a minimum, we suggest at least six months before your expected departure. Please note, that depending on your needs, it may take longer to determine if accommodations are in place for the program that you have chosen.
