The London School of Economics and Political Science (known as the LSE) is today a public university in London, England, and was previously a member college of the University of London. It is well-known as a Left-wing institution.

The LSE was founded in 1895 by Fabian Society members Sidney Webb, Beatrice Webb, Graham Wallas and George Bernard Shaw; it joined the University of London in 1900 and established its first degree courses under the auspices of that university the following year.[1] The LSE began awarding degrees in its own name only in 2008,[2] It became a university in its own right in 2022.[3]
