The London School of Economics and Political Science – LSE – offers a unique opportunity to study the social sciences in a university institution with a worldwide academic reputation, while enjoying the cultural, social and recreational facilities of one of the world's greatest capital cities. Many influential developments in thinking about society, economics and politics have originated in work done here, including the basis of the modern welfare state and the development of free-market economics.

LSE Registration Form, Course Choice Form and a Photograph
Students will be sent an online student registration form to complete by mid May (term 1 students) and mid August (term 2 students). The data will be used to generate student records, ID cards and email accounts.
In addition to this, students must also attend an official registration session at the LSE before the start of term.
Official registration session dates:
Term 1: Student services Centre on Friday 19 September 2014, 11:00 - 12:00.
Term 2: Student services Centre on Wednesday 7 January 2015 from 11:00 - 12:00.
Term 1 students will be able to officially choose courses from 10:00 on 3 October 2014 to 17:00 on 20 October 2014 (dates tbc). Term 2 students can register for courses from 12:00 on 7 January 2015 to 17:00 on 25 January 2015 (dates tbc)
The vast majority of courses are 2 hours per week for 20 weeks (i.e. in total 40 hours of classes). As the language classes usually last 3 terms, it is unlikely that CEMS students would be able to enrol on these courses as they are only here for 1 term.
