London School of Economics Information
The London School of Economics (LSE) and political science is an independent college of the university of London. It was established in 1895 and became a fully fledged member of the university of London in 1900.
Of all the universities in the UK the LSE is the most difficult to get in, with more competition from candidates per place than even the great Oxbridge institutions.
The LSE ranking is number 3 in the University Review top universities in the UK List. Similarly ranked colleges include University of Warwick, University of St Andrews, University of Oxford, and University of Cambridge.
Being a university that concentrates all of its study in one area means that the London School of Economics has only one faculty. However within its field the school offers many different study options, offering 34 different degrees at undergraduate level and 122 at post graduate level (mainly in the form of the MSc). Around 75% of the people taking undergraduate study at the London school of economics come from outside England.
Fifteen of the former faculty and alumni of the London school of economics have received the Nobel prize, these include one of the institutions founding members George Bernard Shaw, who won the Nobel prize for literature in 1925, another winner of the literature prize was Bertrand Russell. Other Nobel prize wins were mainly for the economics prize, these include John Hicks; Friedrich von Hayek; James Meade; William Arthur Lewis; Merton Miller; Ronald Coase; Amartya Sen; Robert Mundell; George Akerlof; and Leonid Hurwicz. Nobel peace prize winners from LSE include Ralph Bunche and Philip Noel-Baker.
