Social Sciences


Developed by academics at LSE, the Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE) in Social Sciences is a stand-alone qualification and a potential entry route to further undergraduate study.

If you are interested in our undergraduate degrees in Economics, Management, Finance and Social Sciences but do not currently meet all the entry requirements, the CertHE may provide you with an entry route to these courses.
