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
Best uni especially for career prospect and academia, variety of opportunities for careers, self-improvements, academia and socialising. Some departments like law also has their own common room whilst others gather in the libraryView more
Despite low student satisfaction ratios, I think the LSE dealt with the covid situation effectively. It provided me with a lot of professional opportunities which helped me secure a very competitive job in one of the best banks in the industry. The counselling and advice offered through various societies were remarkable and student facilities were great. The centre building along with the LSE library were my favourite spots to both hang out and study on campus.
My degree was very challenging but there was always academic help available. The only thing LSE should work on is their mental health counselling service. It is very hard to get appointments unless one mentions that they’re feeling suicidal. There is often a huge wait on getting appointments and I think it is best if LSE does something about it.View more
I am going to enter my third year studying at LSE and so far, it’s been really good! There have been a variety of modules from LSE100 to the modules specific to my degree and each has been interesting. There is lots of support from the careers department and loads of societies to join! However, there is a lot of construction work going on at the moment on campus so it can be quite loud but aside from that, it’s been great!View more
The diversity of the societies and activities at the university and the vast range of events that are organised for our benefit is overwhelming. It is a very friendly and productive environment with a supportive pressure to perform well and a very career-driven atmosphere.View more
Good academics, teaching standards and career prospects in general. Lack of focus on student well being with a lot under high levels of stress. Also a lot more funding could be given to societies to help run events.View more
It’s a decent uni but like I hate the student life here. I came to this uni a normal person but now 2 years later I’m getting treatment for depression. Career prospects are good but it’s really hard to make friends. I wish I went to less competitive uni where people were less about themselves.View more
Lecturers are generally very good at their role and available to provide support when needed. Most lectures are conveniently recorded and can be accessed at any time. There is a strong focus on career development at LSE with plenty of career and networking opportunities. Facilities are modern and its location in Central London, close to other London universities, is fantastic. However, be aware that living in the city is expensive!View more
Was between this program and an MBA in the US! I feel lucky to have selected LSE! Exceeded my expectations!! Over enjoyed my 1-year program and definitely recommend it to anyone interested! It is surely one of the top Universities in the World!!View more
A great, diverse university with several budding Financial and Political sphere leaders. Whilst professors are great some teachers struggle to teach effectively as most of them are research students in their Masters/PhD years. School cafeterias have been improving but still lack the quality of catering in other prominent London universities. Accommodations are great. Career services are only useful to a certain extent, never come with the expectation that you’re guaranteed a job if you attend LSE ( especially if you’re not from the UK)View more
Studying my MSc at LSE was one of the most enriching experiences from which I developed myself. The professors and the quality of the lessons are on top levels. If you get accepted to this University you should definitely accept it. You’ll meet people from all over the world, you’ll be able to do tons of activities in and out the campus and you’ll have the most amazing time in Central London. The exams and projects are very demanding but as long as you are proactive and study very hard since day 1 you’ll be able to achieve great results. LSE provides a lot of activities throughout the year for its students as well as events and conferences from renowned people around the world. You can join students’ societies, sports’ clubs, or you can even create your own association!
LSE provides a lot of discounts as well for its students and inside the campus there are several restaurants for accessible prices.
Professors are very accessible and you can visit them whenever you need to (with appointments).
The library is amazing and you’ll have access to the best materials to work on essays, projects or exams. It is one of the best libraries for social sciences in the world.
As the campus is located in Central London, you’ll be able to do a lot of activities and visit all the touristic places.
Overall, LSE will not disappoint you at all. It is a great opportunity to develop and to always be challenged to achieve better while having a great time!
