London School of Economics and Political Science:
How to Apply

Binghamton University nominates candidates to study at the LSE; the LSE makes the admissions decision. Candidates must have completed two years of university study by the time they enroll in the program. Generally a 3.3 grade point average is required with academic strength in the field that will be the major discipline at the LSE.

All prospective candidates should make an advising appointment with a study abroad advisor in the Office of International Programs. Candidates should submit a complete LSE application form, two letters of reference (one from a faculty member), and transcripts of all university work to the Office of International Programs by November 1. The nominations committee conducts interviews and forwards the applications of Binghamton's nominees to the LSE as soon as the fall semester grades are available.

The initial online application will be available in September 2014.

The November 1 deadline allows ample time for OIP to guide students through the application process and forward completed applications to LSE early in their selection cycle. A secondary deadline of February 1 is available for students who do not learn about this program in time to meet the November deadline.
