Certificate of Higher Education in Social Sciences

Who is this programme for?

The Certificate of Higher Education in Social Sciences is a qualification in its own right. For students who do not meet the degree entrance requirements, it provides an entry route to the Economics, Management, Finance and Social Sciences degrees offered through the University of London Programmes, with academic direction from LSE. By successfully completing the programme you will develop analytical competence allowing you to undertake further undergraduate study.

The Certificate of Higher Education is a taught programme and must be studied at a recognised institution. RSIC provides this opportunity to students with the dedication and ambition to study internationally, but are still lacking in certain areas. This acts as a bridge course prior to seeking a degree from University of London. At Russel, we ensure we provide equitable opportunities to students to access the education of their choice and prepare them for the same through one-on-one faculty assistance.
