One university has been building its reputation as one of the world’s leading social science universities in the world, the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). It is a public research university and is a constituent college of the federal University of London. Despite its name, the school houses 25 academic departments and institutes which conduct teaching across a range of legal studies and social sciences. Those who graduate here earn higher on average than those of any other British university. It has produced many notable alumni in different fields such as business, economics, history, law, and literature.
Graduate Support Scheme (GSS) is a scholarship that aims to aid students who doesn’t have enough fund to continue their studies. LSE offers student grants around £2.6 million every year in the form of awards under the scheme to the outstanding students. The awards vary in value depending on the financial need per student, including miscellaneous fees. It ranges from £5,000 to a maximum of £15,000, with an average value of £7,350.
The priority of this student grants are UK students who are applying for their first Master’s degree program and to fresh graduates who were qualified for a maintenance grant when they were taking their undergraduate studies. However, this scheme is open to all students worldwide. Students who are taking up executive programs such as MSc Finance or MSc Health Economics, Policy and Management are excluded in this scholarship.
LSE offers a wide range of degree programs being offered. You can go from topics in financial reporting up to data analysis and statistical methods. If you’re undecided about the track you want to take, they have Course Guides and Course Finders in their website to assist you. Students must take a certain number of courses per year as recommended by the program regulations. This is usually the equivalent of four full units per year.
GSS awards are intended to aid funding which are expected or secured already, and not to cover the full funding to the applicants. Securing financial support from other sources is approved by the university.
