The LSE Methods Summer Programme, now in its 4th year, is a two-week summer school providing intensive training in social science research methods. We have a range of short courses suitable for undergraduate students, postgraduates, PhD students, researchers and professionals, all taught by LSE academics.

In 2017 we are excited to offer 10 courses across three areas of social science research methods.

All the courses are taught to LSE's high academic standards by world-class academics steeped in experience of social research and with an enthusiasm for the subject. Teaching takes place at LSE's central London campus, 5 minutes' walk from the West End. Courses will usually involve a daily 3-hour lecture and an afternoon seminar or practical computer class. A varied social programme will allow programme attendees to get to know their classmates outside of class. 

Most courses will be assessed via an optional 2-hour exam on the final day of the course. All participants are provided with a certificate upon completion of the course. Participants who take the final exams will also be provided with an official academic transcript to allow students transfer credit if required.

Applications are assessed on a rolling basis and course numbers are capped, so we strongly recommend you apply as early as possible to avoid missing out on a place on your preferred course. Tuition fees vary from course to course; please see the individual course pages for more detailed information. 

Accommodation for Methods Programme students is available at a number of LSE halls of residence.
