SUMMER ceremonies 2021:
There will be no formal in-person graduation ceremonies this summer. There will however be optional in-person departmental receptions taking place in July, where you will have the opportunity to catch up with your friends and faculty from your department to celebrate your year.
These are not intended to replace your graduation - the formal ceremonies will be taking place at a future date once restrictions allow. You will have received an email from LSE with details, but you can find more information on these here.
Wearing a gown is entirely optional but should you wish to do so and feel as though you are not in a financial position to afford the cost of the hire, we have a fund which can support you with this, details of which can be found here.
Due to unprecedented demand, the LSESU Hardship Fund has unfortunately now run out of money.
If you are in need of financial assistance you are therefore advised to contact the LSE's Financial Support Office for help.
Due to the pandemic, the Advice Service will not be on campus during Summer Term 2021.
We are, however, very much still open for business. If you need advice during this time, please either:

"There was a period of time when I was unsure if I would be able to finish my masters due to an unexpected change in my financial circumstances.
Without the vital support provided by the LSESU hardship fund during an unexpected change in my financial circumstances, I would not have gone not onto be awarded a first-class master's degree and then commence Ph.D. studies and become a teacher at London School of Economics.
It is because of the amazing funding that LSE can provide students from poorer backgrounds that ensures first-generation university students can get by."
