I’m about to start my masters application to study behavioural science at LSE. I was wondering if anyone else has applied/ is planning on doing so? And if so, a little bit about your background/ future plans?

Hello, I am also in the process of applying for the behavioural science program.

Have you found any information/reviews from others who have already started?

I guess they're processing undergrads at the moment. Well done for getting it done early tho and good luck! How did you find writing the statement of purpose? I'm currently procrastinating

It was a bit tricky I didn't know exactly what to talk about in the section on related work experience since I'm an economics major working in a startup incubator. I don't think it was the best but hopefully good enough! I think start with something and you'll find the words come quickly.

Hey all! I also applied for MSc Behavioural Science and received my ID on 5th December. My transcript hasn't dropped yet, I think that the department is still processing undergrad applications. I'm hoping for the best. My personal statement was quite long, but it all poured out of me the second I started writing it. The words will come naturally once you get to writing it. Hope that we'll all get to meet in LSE this October!

Hey guys! I applied to this program around November 10 and received an offer on December 17.

I'm Canadian and studied poli-sci in undergrad. I subsequently studied law and practiced for a couple years before quitting. I'm interested in behavioural science and its application to law and public policy. I hope to eventually pursue a PhD after gaining some research experience!

If anyone has any questions about applying to the program, just let me know!

Congrats!

Did you have to apply through UCAS or just through the LSE application system?

Thank you! I applied through LSE's regular application system. I think UCAS is only for undergrad programs, but I'm not British so I might be mistaken?

Great alright. I was thinking the same thing and was concerned that my application did not go through or something because of UCAS. How long did it take you to hear back from them?

Around 5 weeks or so? Not too bad.

On my graduate application portal, a new thing popped up under the documentation section around 6 weeks after I received my ID: "UKBA progression check." Does anyone else have this on their portal or know what this might mean?

There was a FOI request about last year’s numbers (see the link below). Only around 16.5% of applicants were given an offer for the MSc Behavioural Science course. It seems like the programme is becoming quite popular. I wonder what the numbers for this year are like.

Thanks for sharing. It seems to be quite a lower offer rate compared to the rest. Hopefully they allow more space given it's the second year of running the course.

Congratulations!! That sounds like it will be an interesting focus - good luck. How long did you spend writing your personal statement?

Hey there! I applied and received my offer on just about the exact same days as you. Look forward to meeting you in September I'm a third year finance major student studying in the UK. I'm more interested in the behavioural aspects of finance and economics, so I decided to give Behavioural Science a shot. Hopefully it takes me to someplace good!I spent a few days thinking and writing up the personal statement; it ended up being quite a long-winded essay of me just trying to portray myself in the best light possible. The structure was something like my academics-my (limited) internship and volunteering experiences- how the LSE is a great school and the school of my dreams (...)I also briefly quoted from one of the books in the recommended readings.Good luck to those who are applying!

Congrats! Sounds interesting, I'm sure it'll take you some place good and hopefully (if I get my act together and write the damn thing) see you in September.
