You can keep just believe on me that when you just read about this university on this article this institute will be a dreamy university for you. Cause some great people and teacher in this world give the name of this university is “ the most Prospective and the best Economical institute in this world
So let’s come with us and just do know that what is the procedure of admission , education cost  , living cost and another a lot of important information about London School of Economics and Political Science.

Application procedure of London School of Economics and Political Science:-
LSE receives applications via UCAS; the do not consider applications made 'direct' to the School. Before you apply you should read all of the information and guidance on the application procedure section in this post.
The information about admission requirement for London School of Economics and Political Science:-
In this post we will see the huge information for admission on the London School of Economics and Political Science. Let’s check below for the information :
We welcome applications from all prospective students and want to recruit students with the very best academic potential irrespective of their background. In order to achieve this they encourage applicants from the widest possible range of schools and colleges to take advantage of the opportunities available at LSE.
You should read the following information carefully as it will help you determine whether you meet the necessary entry requirements. 
Each application received is carefully considered on an individual basis, taking into account the full range of information presented on the UCAS form including personal statement, academic achievement (including both past and predicted grades), subject combinations and references, before a final decision is made.
As you will see from the individual programme information, there is a great deal of competition for places at the School. In 2012, London School of Economics and Political Science received 17,500 applications for 1,200 places. This means that if you are predicted or if you achieve the grades set out in the standard offer, unfortunately this will not guarantee you an offer of admission.
Age requirements:-
Admission to the School is based upon academic merit and potential. As the School has a responsibility for safeguarding children under English Law, appropriate senior staff will be notified of an offer of admission made to anyone who will be younger than 18 years of age at the time of registration.
AS/A levels:-
London School of Economics and Political Science expect applicants who are studying A levels offer four AS levels (taken after one year of advanced study) and then proceed to three full A levels (A2s). If resourcing issues at your school prevent this then we advise you to request that your referee to indicate in your reference whether resources are available to teach four or five AS levels in Year 12, and whether timetabling arrangements allow the uptake of a wide range of subjects. They  normally make conditional offers based on three full A levels (A2s).
Unit grades:-
AS unit grades already attained are used as part of there decision making process for some of our mathematics based programmes. As competition for places at LSE is intense, it is important that applicants achieve consistently high grades throughout both years of their A level study. Please note that in cases where AS grades are not provided, it is likely that the Undergraduate Admissions Office will request these before a decision can be made.
For the majority of our programmes, admissions tutors will continue to make decisions based on predicted A level grades, as well as previous academic qualifications, the personal statement and academic reference.
Key skills:-
Students are not required to have the Key Skills certificate for admission to LSE.

General Studies/Critical Thinking at A level:-
If you are taking General Studies or Critical Thinking at A level, your grades in this subject will not be counted towards the requirements of any conditional offer we make. However, if we make you a conditional offer and you don't quite achieve the grades they have asked for, we might then take a good grade in such a subject into account when making there final confirmation decision.
A* grade at A level:-
Following the introduction of the A* at A level in 2010, LSE will include an A* in its standard offer for a number of there degree programmes.
Applicants applying for programmes requiring A* with A levels taken before 2010 when A* was not available will be considered equally alongside other applicants. Selectors may request to see unit marks in order to assess applications.
For programmes requiring A* in Mathematics, an A* in Further Mathematics in addition to an A grade in Mathematics would be an acceptable alternative.
Competition for places at the School is intense, so it is important that you achieve consistently high grades throughout both years of your A level (or equivalent) studies. Whilst grades can be improved by re-sitting individual modules, they prefer students who have achieved high grades in their AS and A2 examinations at their first attempt.
Extended Project:-
LSE recognises and values the addition of the Extended Project (EP) to the post 16 curriculum, although they acknowledge that not all applicants will have the opportunity to complete one. For this reason, it is not normally included in any conditional offer that they make. However, the skills of independent study and research which can be demonstrated through  the EP are clearly good preparation for undergraduate study. They therefore encourage those of you who are undertaking an EP to make reference to it in your application.
Whilst the grade that you achieve for your EP may not be specified in any conditional offer, it may be taken into consideration in the summer if you narrowly miss your A level grades.
Cambridge Pre-U:-
LSE will happy to to consider candidates applying with the Cambridge Pre-U Diploma or one or more principal subjects in combination with A levels.
At LSE offers are based on the achievement of specific grades in identified subjects. The School does not make use of the UCAS tariff. Therefore, where an A level student would be asked to achieve a grade A, we will ask for a Pre-U subject grade of D3. Where an A level grade B is required they will ask for a Pre-U principal subject grade of M1.

The Global Perspectives and Independent Research Project (GPR) is of interest but like the Extended Project, will not form part of the conditions of any offer that is made.
Further details can be found via UCAS Course Search
Advanced Diplomas
LSE will consider Advanced Diplomas in pathways which are relevant to the programme applied for on an individual basis. For instance, we might consider Society Health and Development, Business Administration and Finance or Public Services for our Social Policy or Sociology programmes. In such cases we would consider applications from candidates with the Advanced Diploma (including an A level as part of their Additional/Specialist Learning (ASL)) who are also taking an additional free-standing A level in a generally preferred subject.
VCE A level:-
Since the technical and vocational subjects currently offered in the VCE A level are not particularly appropriate to the subjects studied at LSE, LSE would normally expect such candidates to take, in addition, two A levels in traditional academic subjects. The conditions of individual offers may vary if the Admissions Tutor considers this appropriate.
Applicants taking the Access to Higher Education Diploma course are assessed alongside other applicants using the full range of information presented on the UCAS form, including qualifications (predicted/achieved), personal statement and reference. Those demonstrating potential are normally asked to sit the School's Entrance Exam.
The admissions decision is based on the Entrance Exam performance and the information on the UCAS form, as above.
All applicants should complete their Diploma with 45 credits at Level 3 ; specific entry requirements vary depending on the programme applied for: e.g., An applicant applying for a programme with A*AA A level entry requirements is likely to be asked to achieve 30 subject Distinctions, with the remaining 15 subjects at Merit. Where as an applicant applying for an AAA programme, they will be asked for 24 subject Distinctions, with the remaing 21subjects at Merit. Applicants for our AAB programmes will be asked for 18 subject Distinctions, with the remaining 27 subjects at Merit. Marks in specific units relating to the subject area applied for may be required.
Applicants should have achieved or be predicted to achieve the required level of attainment in their Diploma in order to be put forward for the Entrance Exam.
Foundation Courses:-
Applicants seeking advice on which foundation course to study, or its suitability for certain programmes should send details of their course content to UG Admissions. LSE would require details of the course content, assessment and duration for consideration. A list of foundation courses can be found at
Applicants offering the foundation course may also be invited to take the School's Entrance Examination, the results of which are used to determine whether or not an offer is made.
For consideration, those seeking admission to LSE on the basis of a foundation course should achieve a Distinction (75 per cent overall) with a minimum of 70 per cent in all units (or an equivalent score).

Applicants offering BTEC qualifications are considered for entry on our programmes (alongside one or two A levels). If you are considering applying to the School on the basis of a BTEC, please contact us for further guidance.
Other Qualifications:-

London School of Economics and Political Science accept a range of other UK and international qualifications, including the following:
  • International Baccalaureate 
  • Scottish Advanced Highers (normally three Advanced Highers or two, plus one A level)
  • Irish Leaving Certificate
  • Welsh Baccalaureate
  • European Baccalaureate
More details of the grades expected in these qualifications together with other information on other acceptable qualifications can be found in our information for international students.
If you have taken GCSE level qualifications, or the equivalent, these will also be taken into account in there admission decision.
Subject combinations and 'non-preferred' subjects
LSE are looking for evidence that you have academic ability and achievement in breadth. For some degrees they require Mathematics at A level or equivalent; details of subject requirements can be found in the programme entries.
The School considers not only the subjects offered by applicants at A level (A2) and AS level, but also the combination of them. Certain subjects are considered  by there admissions tutors to be a more effective preparation for studying at LSE. Admissions Tutors will normally consider one of the subjects listed as 'non-preferred' below only if it is offered in combination with two generally preferred subjects. For example, Mathematics, French and Economics would be a suitable combination for almost any of our degrees. Mathematics, French and Business would be acceptable, but they would prefer the first example. On the other hand, Mathematics, Accounting and Media Studies would not normally be considered as suitable as this combination includes twosubjects on the 'non-preferred' list below. You should also note that we are less concerned with subject combinations at AS level.
Successful applicants normally offer three A levels (A2s) in there generally preferred subjects, or two generally preferred subjects and one from the following list of subjects that are 'non-preferred.' The list is regularly reviewed by Admissions Tutors:
  • Accounting
  • Art and Design
  • Business Studies
  • Communication Studies 
  • Design and Technology
  • Drama/Theatre Studies
  • Home Economics 
  • Information and Communication Technology
  • Law
  • Media Studies
  • Music Technology
  • Sports Studies
  • Travel and Tourism
An A level (or equivalent) in your first/native language may not be counted.
Please note the following points:
Drama and Theatre Studies:-
The Departments of Anthropology, International History, International Relations, Social Policy and Sociology consider Drama and Theatre Studies equally with other generally preferred subjects. They will therefore consider Drama and Theatre Studies alongside one other subject from the non-preferred list.
However, the majority of departments continue to feel that Drama and Theatre Studies is not appropriate or relevant in content to their degree programmes and still consider it to be 'non-preferred.'
Music Technology:-
Music Technology is regarded as a non-preferred A level subject. However the School does accept A level Music as a generally preferred subject.
Business Studies:-
Whilst not necessarily perceived as the best preparation, due to its vocational content, a number of applicants offering Business Studies alongside two other generally preferred subjects like Maths or English, do receive offers from LSE every year. However, the combination of Business Studies and Economics as two separate A levels is best avoided.
Accounting and Law:
As with Business Studies, students offering either Accounting or Law as one of their A level subjects should not be put off from applying to LSE, as depending on their overall academic profile, they made be made an offer.
If you have taken GCSE level qualifications, or equivalent, these will also be taken into account when the admissions tutors assess your application. All applicants are normally expected to have at least grade B in GCSE English and Mathematics or the equivalent, although exceptions are made for applicants with extenuating circumstances.
Some programmes require grades higher than B in GCSE Mathematics and these are outlined in the individual programme entries. Certain departments look for a number of A or A* grades at GCSE. 
Usual standard offers:-
You will see that LSE express our standard offer in terms of A levels (by which we mean A2s) and the International Baccalaureate (IB). Predicted or actual grades which meet or exceed the standard offer will not guarantee an offer of admission. Furthermore, these are only a guide and in some cases candidates will be asked for grades which differ from this. In cases where the applicants for a given programme are of a particularly high calibre, competition for places can be intense and the offer you receive may be higher than there 'usual standard offer.'
It may also serve as a useful reminder that your application form is not solely assessed on your predicted/ achieved academic qualifications, but also on the basis of your personal statement and reference.
English language requirements:-
All students are required to be sufficiently proficient in the English Language to benefit from their studies at the School.
Although it is not necessary to have the required grade in an acceptable English Language qualification when you make your application to LSE, if you are made an offer of a place and English is not your mother tongue, it is likely that you would be asked to obtain an acceptable English Language qualification as a condition of your offer.
Cost of studying at London School of Economics and Political Science:-
2011-2012 fees table
The figures quoted are for one year of study (the 2011/12 session) at LSE only, unless stated otherwise. If your programme includes a period of study at another institution, eg MSc Global Media and Communications, the fees for that time will be set by the institution in question and payable there. Likewise, if your programme covers more than one year at LSE, the new fee levels for your second and succeeding years will be payable in due course.
Please note that fees are paid in each year (academic session) for which you are registered, and normally rise in each year. They do not stay the same as the year in which you started. LSE reserves the right to alter the level of fee. Changes in fee levels may occur over the year. You should check the following table for the latest levels. Where marked, fees are provisional.
