Leadership Accreditation

The LSESU Leadership Accreditation is an award which recognises the students who have developed their skills as part of the LSESU community.

By attending skills sessions, organising new opportunities and ultimately having a significant impact on the student experience at LSE, you could receive an official LSESU skills accreditation and a bespoke award for your commitment.

There are three different streams, and four stages for you to complete in order to receive the LSESU Leadership Accreditation. If you’re not sure which stream is for you, then you can find more information at our FAQs tab on the left.

If you’d like any further information, then register your interest and someone from LSESU will be in touch to tell you how you can embark on the Leadership Accreditation!
