LSE presessional English course?


Magiur

Hi!
Does anyone know if LSE offers (and accepts) presessional English language courses if the applicants level of English doesn't meet the language requirement?? I suppose not, since I haven't found anything on the homepage...

Is it easier to get 114 in the ibT or 7.5 in the IELTS? How difficult is it to achieve this scores if someone has an IELTS score of, for example, 6.0?

Thanks

Hi!

in my opinion IELTS test is easier. It is very likely that if you fail to receive 114 points in TOEFL exam, your application will be rejected. I thought about applying for LLM at LSE, but I did not meet this requirement (I received 107 points in TOEFL exam), so I called LSE and I have been told that if I apply I will be rejected.

I think that no other law school in the world has so high language requirement (even Harvard requires only 100 points).

Best of luck,

Thanks for your answer! Indeed, its a very high TOEFL score and as far as I know no other law school requires such a TOEFL score.

But I think its quite difficult to achieve 7.5 in IELTS, too. And if there is no possibility to do pre-sessional for the LSE LL.M. it could become a problem.

Nobody knows if LSE offers and accepts pre-sessional English courses for LL.M students???

Magiur, the best and most reliable way to get the information you need is to call the LSE.

That's probably true! I tried it first on this thread to check if there is someone who had or has similar problems. Now I'll try it directly at LSE...

Thanks and best regards

I dont about LSE cause im not going there but I did take the IELTS twice because the first time I got an overall score of 7 and I needed 7.5 for UCL per example so I did it again and got the 7.5 and 7.5 and 8 in each band,,,,i think you need to practice and study before doing the test at least thats why I did.

Thank you, Pucca! Well, I'm sure that I'll have to study for it. How much did you study for getting from 7.0 to 7.5? It certainly depends from person to person, but an indication would be helpful for me...

Not that much i studied more the first i did the test but maybe it was easier for the second time cause i need already how the test worked etc and i also think the topics where more interesting to me the second time

@ Pucca: Thanks! I hope I'll be able to get 7.5, since there is still a lot of time for the 2010 application. The nasty thing is that LSE (although I'm not 100 % sure about that) doesn't offer pre-sessional English courses. My English skills are the crucial point, whereas for the rest I could have good chances to get in the LSE LL.M. We will see...
