Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) brings together some of the most important approaches to understanding the world around us, developing skills useful for a whole range of careers and activities.


PPE is a buoyant subject at LMH. There are a number of Fellows and Tutors in each of the three sides of the school, as well as the IKEA Research Fellow in International Relations, who are engaged in cutting edge research at the forefront of their fields.  This makes it possible for students to receive a broad range of tuition and support from within the College, although undergraduates will also have the opportunity to receive specialised tuition from experts in other colleges, as is the norm across the University.

I have had such an amazing time studying PPE at LMH, I could not have asked for a better university experience. For me, the PPE course is brilliant because after your first year you can really tailor it towards the areas you are interested in. Doing it at LMH is the best decision I could have made/been lucky enough to have the opportunity to be a part of - the tutors are all so friendly, encouraging and willing to help anytime I have needed it!
