LSE Summer School offers over 80 three-week courses taught by LSE’s world-renowned faculty. All courses take place on our campus in the heart of Central London.

The LSE Summer School has the world's largest intake of international study abroad undergraduates compared with other summer schools across the globe. Visiting students are often able to transfer credit from LSE's rigorously assessed summer courses towards degrees at their home institution.


English is the major language of international business. The pressure is on for the ambitious individual to not only maintain a good standard of English, but to increase fluency and overall competence.

This three week-programme is designed to improve your confidence in speaking, reading, writing and listening in a business context. The focus will be on the language you need for business activities, and will provide a British perspective for creative discussion.

There is also a topic and theme-based syllabus delivered by LSE academic staff and external business practitioners.

The timetable's emphasis on collaborative projects and tasks will enable an improvement of key integrated language skills. Regular practice in class will further extend your capabilities in the way you actually use and manipulate business English.
