I wanted to know if anyone had applied for Social Policy at LSE, and if they could tell me the chances of receiving an offer and what they're looking for. Also, if there's any general advice that you could give, please feel free to!

We can't accurately comment on your chances, we aren't admission tutors. If you meet the stated course requirements (or are predicted to meet them) then you have a chance, nobody can say more than that. I'm sure there are Social Policy students/applicants in the dedicated London School of Economics forum. I suggest you look there for answers to your other questions. You can use the search function to find older posts that mention social policy, click here.

Hi . I graduated from the lse with a degree in Social Policy. Honestly as long as you have been predicted the grades that the course requires or have received the grades at as level then you should have the same chances as everyone else. Don't worry so much about your gcse''s or as grades and don't compare yourself to other applicants. At the moment focus on what you r going to write in your personal statement . Take a look at statements that u can find over the Internet n also look at what lse requires for u to write in your personal statement . Make a note on all of the things that cover letters could you should include such as your skills any society that you're part of any club that you're part of anything that you've done it outside of school the photos of voluntary experiences. Etc. Talk about why u want to study it . Also take a look at what your modules will require u to learn.
Also important thing is that your teachers will be writing your reference for you. Try to develop your relationship with them and also really sell your passion and make it look like that you're passionate about social policy to your teachers and hopefully they will write you a really good referenceLast edited by ExoKris; 21-10-2016 at 22:18.
