Finding Financial Support


Our student advisers can offer and range of advice and support concerning matters of financial hardship or difficulty.


How can I access financial support school offered by the school?


LSE offers a wide range of scholarships, bursaries and financial support to assist both undergraduate and post-graduate students during their time at LSE.   Information on all the financial support avaiable at LSE can be found on the financial support section of the school’s website.


If you are thinking of applying for financial assistance and would like to discuss the process or would like help completing the application then drop into the advice centre in room E297 during our open hours and one of the student advisers will be happy to go through it with you.


How can I access financial support offered by external groups and charities?


At the student advice centre we have access to a funding database, called ‘FunderFinder’ which details a wide range of external funding organisations and charities which students can apply to for financial assistance.  You can make an appointment to use ‘FunderFinder’ and one of the student advisers will guide you through searching the database to produce a list of funding providers which match your personal criteria.  You can then take the list away and apply too all these organisations in your own time.


Can I get advice on tax, debts, loans and fees?


As well as assisting you in funding applications the student advisers can offer advice and support on a whole other range of financial issues including the following areas: debts, grants, loans, overseas fees, council tax.  You may also find it helpful to look at the “useful links” page of this website as it lists a number of websites that can be of assistance to any student who needs financial support.
