London School of Economics Summer School
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.
Study in one of the world's most exciting cities
London is one of the most exciting and culturally-diverse cities in the world. Being a part of LSE Summer School will give you the opportunity to study and live centrally in one of the leading global cities in the world.
While the main focus of your time at LSE will be your studies, you will also have the chance to relax with your fellow students outside of class. An organised social programme will give you a chance to see some of the sights of London. Some of the events held in 2014 included trips to the theatre and day-trips to Cambridge and Oxford.
Mix with students from all over the world
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 2014 we welcomed students from the top universities around the world, including Harvard, Yale, Bocconi, Copenhagen Business School, EDHEC and many more.
While the majority of our students are undergraduate students, we also welcome a large number of postgraduate students and professionals each year. In 2014, over 500 professionals from a variety of fields attended the Summer School. Each year we welcome groups from organisations such as the Bank of England, the European Commission, Dutch Ministry of Finance, Bank of Italy and the United Nations.
Gain credit towards your degree
Institutions all over the world grant credit for Summer School courses. While ultimately it is up to your home institution as to how much credit is awarded, generally our courses are awarded 3 credits in the US system and 7.5 ECTS in the European system. For details, speak to your Study Abroad advisor.

It is only possible to apply for accommodation once a formal offer of a place at the Summer School has been made.
Students pay LSE Summer School tuition and student fees, not UGA tuition and fees. Financial Aid such as HOPE, Zell Miller and student loans can be applied to the program. See the financial aid section of GoAbroad.uga.edu for more information.
