    Hi guys,

    I'm an potential international undergraduate student from Singapore, looking to apply to LSE during this cycle. I'm interested in applying for LSE's Social Policy degree, have a question regarding the choices in UCAS.

    LSE offers both of these:
    Social Policy
    Social Policy with Government

    Since both of these choices are from similar disciplines, am I allowed to apply for both? If I am, how does the offer work, since I don't see an option to indicate which would be my first/second choice? Would I only receive an offer for one of the two programmes?

    You could apply to both but as they re the same department it's possible if they don't have places on one course but still want you they could offer you the other anyway.

    LSE discourage applying to more than one of their courses.

    Choose your favourite and apply to that one only.
