London School of Economics (LSE) was founded in 1895. It is located in the central part of the vibrant city of London. LSE degree programmes in various disciplines are accredited by professional bodies, such as the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) and the Royal Statistical Society (RSS).Show more
Bearing the title of being one of the top economics universities in the world inevitably signifies that academics at this the LSE particularly economics is bound to be challenging. Some of this burden is alleviated by the attentive tutors and top quality resources as well as plethora of co-curricular opportunities to overcome the stress. That said being a non-campus university in the heart of London meets the obvious challenge of having students scattered all over London and a lacking sense of belonging or identity in the university. Forging a stronger sense of belonging and support for the students by holding more in campus activities and programs would help with this cause and alleviate the student satisfaction ranking.View more
The online program was not complicated and engaged the students completely. The online platform was easy to use, textbook provided by the university was the best general study guide as well. The tutorials in the program were short but covered the main key points needed to pass the exam. The tutors also made the tutorials simple to understand, and would always answer all your queries and questions and make sure you understand. The classes for my degree were all relevant and the knowledge learnt will be useful throughout life.
Being an online program did make it difficult to actually get motivated to study, as it was all up to you if you wanted to study or not, no one would tell you or push you to study.
The school could improve by adding weekly online classes to the program and giving out small weekly assignments that have to be done by the students, this would motivate them and make the students put more effort into the course.
Due to it being online, there wasn’t a normal student life. You could actually work a full-time job and study on the side.
The online course is done worldwide, I actually did it in Kenya. Hence I would say the university is very international.
I would definitely recommend anyone to study there, especially if they want to study while working. Also, the fees are very affordable, and there isn’t as much stress put on you.
Getting a degree from a prestigious university like this one has a massive positive impact on your career prospects as the university is well recognized both internationally and locally. Due to finishing my degree just recently, I haven’t yet got a job in the field I studied, but I am confident I’ll be able to get one soon.
The research for my project was at the forefront of the field of land policy studies and explored many intersections between the field of urban planning and other disciplines. The space and facilities in the college are also very good, including places for individual study and for group discussions and modelling.View more
Nice course, very responsible teachers, friendly classmates with impressive backgrounds, the blended teacher was helpful as I wanted to review the videos after the class but there were many topics I wanted to explore further during the 20 weeks of teaching.View more
The program is really strong. The best thing is that it is available for everyone not only in London. You can be a part of it in many different countries. All of the material is available online. I know it will open a lot of career opportunities for me and this is the best thing even though it is really hard. And the certificate will be accepted everywhere in the world. I really suggest people who are interested in having good knowledge to go through this bachelors.View more
Just ordinary. Professors, courses, and projects are good but ordinary. I would expect that a so-called G5 college can impress me, but it does so only in negative ways. Maybe because I only choose some general courses. I would advise others to choose courses that focus on a small topic.View more
The professors know the field really well and they articulate the subject in a very concise and objective way. The course is demanding cause you’re on a tight schedule of heavy reading, essay/exam that makes up 100% mark of the course, and getting used to London/the University as an international student/bachelor degree graduate. It did change a lot of how I view the world and I appreciate the experience.View more
Prior to enrolling into LSE, I understood about the high percentage of international students, in a sense this can be seen as a positive by helping the school increase its diversity as well educating ourselves by meeting students from different cultures and backgrounds. In Academia, I would rate my school very highly since some of my lecturers are leading researchers in their respective fields. Similarly, when it comes to classes I was somewhat surprised to find that majority of the teachers are in fact PhD students, personally, I would prefer a professor when it comes to answering my questions or a better explanation of a certain area. I would greatly like to emphasize the career service of my school since it offers a wide range of workshops such as cv prep or mock interviews when trying to land internships or graduate roles. By using this service has helped me land a volunteering role at a charity in itself. On the other hand, some ways to improve my school is to include more non-alcoholic events such as in pubs or bars. Overall I would rate my first term as inspiring and a great learning curve for my journey at this uni.View more
Pros: great range of business-orientated modules, very clean campus, very international, good career prospects, lectures are insightful, there’s an incredible array of opportunities, and there are weekly influential speakers. However, the teaching could be better.View more
My degree has a relatively low number of students which makes my studies more interpersonal. This makes it easy to learn faster and communicate with teachers/academic mentors more efficiently if I need help. The program is well-structured and the courses are complementary which helps me build up knowledge consistently and cohesively.View more
