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!
Location is perfect being in such a global city as London, which also filters into gifting students with great career prospects. Courses offer great complimentary modules with plenty opportunities to get involved with extra-curricula activities with departments being very active in setting up events.View more
I studied the MSc Global Politics at LSE. The course was very interesting, covered a broad range of subjects, and had many interesting modules to choose from, however, it was quite general and broad and I ended up learning a little about a lot rather than studying in-depth.
Facilities and resources available at the uni are excellent, good academic and career support, great location. Overall, I had a great experienceView more
LSE’s renowned slogan ‘learning the causes of things’ was one of the first things I saw on the university prospectus before I joined. This phrase was constantly repeated during my induction sessions in the first year, but is it really true? I can absolutely say that after 4 years at the LSE studying a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, I have been encouraged to critically engage with debates, theories, peers and academic staff to truly get to know the causes of various phenomena. A crucial aspect of studying at the LSE is learning that you will very rarely find the true causes of things, but that is ok too. Understanding the limitations of what we can know is a key aspect of social science. From supportive academic staff, engaging curriculum and a variety of societies to choose from, my experience at the LSE has been an incredible (very steep) learning experience where I have felt challenged and stretched. I have enjoyed being a student on a modern campus in the heart of London and would most definitely recommend the experience to others. If you want to study at one of the best and most renowned institutions in the world (and have a whole lot of fun too) then I definitely recommend the LSE.View more
I came to LSE on a one year exchange program for the US. My time here has allowed me to immerse myself into the campus and student life. I must say, compared to my uni in the US, the LSE fosters individual and original thought. They host a ton of talks and lectures that create an atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re involved in the future of different discussions.View more
The teaching quality at this university is excellent. All teachers are experts in their field, have great contacts with other leading members of their field and are all very eager to provide help and support.View more
I love studying here. LSE is great, my professors are excellent and very knowledgeable. The diversity of backgrounds enriches our experience in the classroom. It is also very challenging, which makes it even more worthwhileView more
As a PG i think that there is little social diffusion across departments. However i see few ways to improve this due to the majority of programmes being 12 months. In addition, i think that there is a lack of social spaces that would enable this diffusion.View more
The university offers you some of the greatest career prospects and opportunities to enhance your knowledge of the subject you love. The university has amazing facilities, though sometimes not large enough. However it lacks pastoral support.View more
