LSE is pleased to announce the Wellcome Award MSc in Health and International Development scholarships. They commenced in 2019 and applications are now open for the 2022/23 session.
The MSc in Health and International Development programme will award a full scholarship to a total of eight students for entry between 2019 and 2024.
LSE was the brain child of Sidney Webb, supported by his wife, the social investigator Beatrice Webb, the political scientist Graham Wallas, and the writer George Bernard Shaw.
All four were prominent members of the Fabian Society. In 1894, they decided to use a £20,000 bequest to open a specialist higher education institution.
The first students arrived in October 1895 and in 2020 LSE celebrated her 125th anniversary.
In 2006 the School obtained the right to confer her own degrees and the first LSE degree was conferred in 2008.
In recent years, LSE has continued to perform well in league tables and research impact exercises.
Another area of focus has been developing their campus in the heart of London. They have established a presence on Lincoln’s Inn Fields. The New Academic Building, designed by Grimshaw, opened in 2008, and in 2013, 32 Lincoln’s Inn Fields became the home of the Department of Economics and related research centres.
The School’s first new build for 40 years was the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre. Designed by O’Donnell & Tuomey, the building was shortlisted for the 2014 Stirling Prize.
Today the Centre Buildings Redevelopment has re-shaped Houghton Street and Clare Market and won numerous awards. Work is currently underway on the Marshall Building at 44 Lincoln’s Inn Fields.
Part of their COVID-19 response was the Shaping the Post-COVID World initiative. It demonstrates the importance of social science research and investigation to the world we live in.
LSE continues to develop and change but her founding purpose remains as important as ever.
