Hi, hope everyone's safe. Im wondering if I am able to get into LSE's Data Science undergraduate degree without any prior experiences in the subject Economics (in GCSEs and A-levels) even though it doesn't specify Economics as a required subject but some of the modules in the course focuses on Economics. Cheers!

Yes! A-Level Economics isn't even required for BSc Economics at LSE. I really don't think they discriminate against anyone without experience with Economics - you will take a different module if you haven't taken A-Level Econ (eg you will take Econ A/B depending on if you have done A-level or not), and you will quickly catch up. Some people say they prefer people without as A-level Econ is infamously very different to university level economics anyway. LSE is much more interested in your experience with maths (eg further maths is a must for quite a lot of their courses) than econ. Best of luck!

Yes, LSE have always leaned towards maths as an important subject and Economics as something they're able to teach you proactively. The course modules only show that there are micro/macro economic content. Therefore, it does seem that the course will not be so heavy into economics. Just ensure your Mathematics A Level has a good predicted grade.

There is no Economics requirement. We expect applicants to demonstrate interest in the programme content in their Personal Statement, but aside from Mathematics there are no subject specific requirements. Please see the programme page for guidance.
