Studying Economics at LSE opens you to gain further understanding of the wider implications of economics in the world today whilst also using quantitative and qualitative theories to enrich this. The course also allows you to learn outside modules such as accounting, finance, geography, etc, in which you have the opportunity to widen your knowledge about other modules that aren’t necessarily based on your degree. Simultaneously, the degree consists of group projects such as the first-year challenge which enables us as students to not only learn the theoretical concepts but think like economists and apply our knowledge.
Besides academics, the degree has excellent academic support through student mentors, LSE life, and peer support schemes. On the social side, there’s always something to get involved in whether that’s social involvement or volunteering! LSE also provides a great career hub service, providing 1-1 help with spring week applications.
Overall, the degree is inevitably challenging but the nature of the content is intriguing!
