LSE term dates / length: 9 or 12 months?


Hi there everybody!

I gladly received an offer from LSE (2012/2013) and I heard confusing information on the term dates.

I sometimes hear that in fact it is possible to stay in London only for 9 months, even though the term lasts 12 months.

In conclusion, to save some money, it could be wise no to sign an accomodation contract for 50 weeks.

Is that correct?

Thx.

Yes. Based on last year's course, the teaching starts end Sept / early October. Most of the teaching (i.e. all except for one or two revision classes) happens in the first two terms and the second term finishes in early April... then there's a gap for studying, and exams from late May to mid to late June. Then your dissertation is due towards the end of August, but you don't need to be physically in London to complete that, depending on what library resources you might need (a lot of stuff is available online).
