We offer a range of Bachelors and Masters degrees, as well as a structured doctoral training in economics. The size of the Department ensures that all main fields of economics are represented in the teaching programme, and our strengths in research and policy formation feed through to the teaching programme.

Our student body is very diverse. Across all programmes, the ratio of men to women is roughly 2:1. Non-UK students make up approximately 65% of the undergraduate and 85% of the postgraduate populations.

The LSE's undergraduate and postgraduate prospectuses contain detailed information on programmes, studying at LSE, student life in London and how to apply. For more information,  please see Study at LSE.
