About

Established: 1895

The London School of Economics and Political Science (informally the London School of Economics or LSE) is a public research university specialised in social sciences located in London, and a constituent college of the federal University of London. LSE joined the University of London in 1900 and first issued degrees to its students in 1902. Despite its name, LSE conducts teaching and research across a range of social sciences, as well as in mathematics, statistics, philosophy and history.

LSE is located in Westminster, central London, near the boundary between Covent Garden and Holborn in an area historically known as Clare Market. It has around 9,500 full-time students and just over 3,000 staff. The School is organised into 24 academic departments and 19 research centres. LSE's library, the British Library of Political and Economic Science, contains over 4 million print volumes, 60,000 online journals and 29,000 electronic books.

LSE is a world leading social sciences dedicated institution. The 2013 QS World University Rankings ranked LSE 2nd within the discipline of social sciences and management and 4th for employer reputation. The Times Higher Education's 2014 World Reputation Ranking placed LSE 24th.
