THE LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND POLITICAL SCIENCE is one of the Colleges of the University of London.

The object of the School is to provide for all classes and denominations, without any distinction whatsoever, opportunities and encouragement for pursuing a regular and liberal course of education of the highest grade and quality in the various branches of knowledge dealt with by the Institution, and especially those prescribed or required by the University of London from time to time. With this end in view it supplies liberal courses of education specially adapted to the needs of persons who are, or who intend to be, engaged in any kind of administration, including the service of any government or local authority, railways and shipping, banking and currency, international trade, and any of the higher branches of Commerce and Industry, and also the profession of teaching any such subjects.

The lectures and classes of the School are arranged so that students can pursue a full University course, extending over not less than three years, and including the subjects required for the B.Sc. and D.Sc. Degrees in the Faculty of Economics and Political Science (including Commerce and Industry). All courses for a first degree in this Faculty are so arranged that students, who can attend in the evening only, can meet the full requirements of the University. In co-operation with University and King's Colleges, the School offers also a complete course of study in the Faculty of Laws. Many of the courses have also been recognised by the Senate of the University in the Faculty of Arts, those for instance in Geography, History, Economics and Sociology.

The lectures and classes of the School are also open to those who are not "Internal Students," and cannot, for various reasons, pursue a full University course. Scientific training is provided for (i) different branches of public administration, central and local, (ii) trade and commerce, (iii) accounting, (iv) railways, (v) library administration. Many of the courses are useful to candidates for the Civil Service, especially the Consular Service, and for such examinations as those of the Institute of Bankers, the Institute of Chartered Accountants and the Society of Accountants. For fuller information regarding the work of the School intending Students are referred to The Calendar, which may be had on application, price 1s., by post 1s. 4d., payable in advance.
