    Career-focused, ambitious students

    LSE is a well-known university, famous for its social science courses. I am a third year student at LSE and I have pretty much enjoyed my time there. It is not what I expected when I first joined but the intense competitive culture for job application has made me a motivated and driven person. Students here study hard and play hard. Most people are part of a sport team. Extracurricular activities served as a platform for students to come together and meet each other. The school itself is very international with students from all over the globe. Student halls are within walking distance to the school. The best thing about the school is that it is in central London which means you have the best of London at your foot step!

    Intimidating, but only at first

    LSE has had a bad reputation for several years in terms of social life – I quickly found that to be a stereotype or just an idea people came with. LSE has the same social life as any other unis in London, just like Kings or UCL, you need to put yourself ‘out there’ in the beginning of the year and be open minded. Through classes, societies, halls, you meet amazing people. Everyone is new, it makes it easy to make new connections that slowly mature into true friendships. Events are regularly organized, the sports night every Wednesday are a big part of the LSE social life as well and they’re super fun! Trips are organized by different societies throughout the year as well! There are plenty of things to get involved with all around campus !

    Academically, I have found my classes extremely stimulating and have never been bored – lecturers are amazing ( I am pursuing an International Relations BSc) and office hours have been super helpful.

    Very bad teaching quality!

    LSE is a very reputable university in London. However, the program is very disappointing as it was not very structured and there are a lot of overlapping courses. Besides, the teaching quality is very bad. Although there are a lot of professors from well-known universities like Harvard – it does not guarantee how they deliver the sessions. It was very disappointing.

    LSE Experience

    Although the work load can be intense at times, it offered many interesting readings and proposed me with good intellectual challenges that I have thoroughly benefited. I liked the fact that in the second year, you have a chance to select modules of your interest. At this stage, you can tailor your degree to fit your interests and start make your degree more unique! LSE has a resourceful career service, which provides help for interview and C.V. in general, as well as, a network of alumni that interacts closely with the university.

  • Law
    It's up to you to make the most of

    I chose LSE to push myself out of my comfort zone, and I don’t regret it. Everyone told me that I’d be better suited to an university with a friendlier student body and more activities with which I could get involved. Sure, at first, it took time to settle in, but when everyone is new to LSE, we’re all in it together and eager to meet new people (especially in the first few weeks, so make good use of that). If you’re someone who wants to be involved in student life, there are opportunities to join as many societies and clubs as you’d like and you’ll be meeting others who are equally interested. On the other hand, if you’re someone who wants to focus on your degree, you can do that too. For instance, a friend who did an exchange year described the students as “ambitious”, with many being career-driven. How you choose to spend your few years at university is up to you. (However since there is this flexibility, I’ve heard some express their frustration of the lack of unity amongst the entire student body.) Remember – even if you don’t meet “your people” in the first week, or the first year even, continue making the effort and you’ll find people you click with eventually. What I will say about internationality is that the student body itself is diverse, but there does not seem to be much effort made amongst the students to mingle.

    In terms of academics, I can only speak about the law department. The teaching is of a high standard. The professors and teachers know their material well, and are eager to help you so you should make use of office hours. Amongst the law students, there is definitely a push towards commercial law and it is easy to get swept up in all of that. If that is the route you’re interested in, getting career advice from older students seems to be more practical than the careers service. There are less opportunities for you to be introduced to other career paths (i.e. ones that you would not have thought of), so it’s more on you to search for them yourself.

    On the whole, I’m enjoying my time thus far. The ride has not been without its bumps, but it’s all a learning experience! If you want to immerse yourself in an environment which pushes you to be independent and meet ambitious, intelligent individuals, check out LSE.

    A Life Changing Experience

    LSE is an amazing experience. It transformed me into a different, more mature individual and taught me lessons that would be beneficial throughout my career. I would definitely recommend the use of LSE’s library and its facilities in particular due to the immense help

    The university prepares its students well for a professional career by sharpening the analytical ability and increases intellectual wellness by providing a platform to engage and interact with world leaders. A recommendation would be to actively encourage and support entrepreneurship through study programmes, funding, networking and working spaces.
