Academics

 

Academics

For students who want to be immersed in the excitement of modern Britain, living and studying in London is the obvious choice. The cultural life in London is one of the richest and most diverse in the world. Studying in England is very different than what you might be used to. Students are expected to study outside of class to retain a large portion of their subject matter.  Unlike universities in the United States, the majority of each student's grades in England is based on one or two large assignments or solely on the final test - not on class participation or attendance.  This study abroad experience  provides Emory students an independent experience with the opportunity to get to know students from Britain and all over the world.

The Study Abroad program at LSE is fully integrated, so you will attend the same classes and live in the same accommodation as any other LSE student. It is critical that you are prepared for immersion into the UK academic system. Here are some important characteristics we think it will be helpful for you to know about the UK academic system
LSE's module request form is not a registration form; it is a guideline to let LSE know which courses (modules) you are interested in taking abroad. You should have several backup choices in mind as you will not officially register for your courses until you arrive on campus.

Note: Every effort will be made to place you in the courses you request. However, neither LSE nor Emory University can guarantee placement in any course. Your first choices may not be available due to schedule changes, time conflicts or cancellations. Alternate course approval and flexibility is extremely important.

Housing

 

Housing

LSE is an urban university; expect a daily commute anywhere between 30 minutes to one hour; this is the nature of studying in a large city like London!
  • Accommodations are guaranteed for General Course students
  • Students live in residence halls with other LSE students, including both British and international students
  • Some student housing is close to the LSE campus in central London while other residence halls are located in nearby areas easily accessible by public transportation
  • Please find additional information about housing here
