Russell Square International College
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.
The Certificate of Higher Education in Social Sciences consists of 4 full courses (or the equivalent). You have 6 years to complete the programme, although it is usually taken over 1 year. You are expected to study for 35 hours per week, including lectures and tutorials.
This programme is taught under the academic direction of The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) itself. LSE is regarded as an international centre of academic excellence and innovation in the social sciences.
After successful completion of CHESS, you can easily seek admission into the Third year of a degree in LSE. This course helps strengthen your foundation so that you can be better equipped for the rest of the years of your degree and at par with all the other students.
Russell Square International College presents the opportunity to pursue some of the most sought-after undergraduate courses in the world, laying the foundation for academic and professional success alike. Since the strength of the college is small, it has a high teacher-to-student ratio, which helps students stand-out in such challenging courses.
My main attraction in pursuing a degree from University of London (UOL) was the name 'LSE' that was involved with it. For an economics lover like myself, this course gives a comprehensive understanding of economics and all its branches.
After my days at RSIC, I came to the UK. RSIC's UOL course enabled me to get a scholarship to pursue my Masters in the UK. Currently, I am working at 4C Associates, a consulting firm in London, UK. RSIC has helped to mould me in many ways, and it prepares me to step into the real world. The capabilities I've developed over the course of my degree are exactly what employees are looking for in a graduate.
