    Social sphere

    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.

    LSE - a place full of opportunities, and full of self-serving people as well with little time.

    I find LSE an academically very good and challenging university. It is a kind of place where, if you know how to seize the resources and connections of an institution, you will thrive and benefit from being at LSE. LSE, however, exhibits a quite similar pool of socioeconomic backgrounds and mindsets. Yes it is international, but due to the difficulty of getting in you will find the same busy, self-serving, if bright people on campus.

    It is a huge asset that LSE is in London. It is an experience of a lifetime to have your degree blend with one of the most dynamic cities in the world.

    If you value social life, chill people- you need to think twice about going. If you value nature and time, think twice. I recommend, however, joining a sports society. And, as always, if you want to see change – be the change.

    Also remember, there is no such thing as a right decision. Often, we just need to take a decision – and the make it the right decision as we go along.

    A brand that takes you far

    My experience at the LSE was overwhelmingly positive, although not perfect. The location in the heart of London is unbeatable and puts you at the center of all the action, right next to Somerset House, Royal Courts of Justice and Oxford Street. I think the quality of academics here is good but nothing that you wouldn’t be able to get at another decent university. However, you’ll find yourself surrounded by exceptional and inspiring people from all over the world, and a lot of learning takes place from the people you interact with. In addition, the people you met at the LSE come with connections in high-ranking places like the UN, governments and INGOs, so you can be sure to build a strong network going forward. Some people do say that the LSE can be lonely. I personally didn’t experience that because I stayed in a catered LSE residence hall where I met people everyday over dinner and subsequently became very close with them. Getting involved in clubs and societies is also a great way to have a vibrant social life. It is no secret that the LSE is very expensive and very much a part of the ‘knowledge economy’. However, they do have generous grants for need-based students and I know of several people from incredibly difficult backgrounds studying for absolutely free. And I admire the institution for maintaining its commitment to meritocracy, regardless of socioeconomic position. Lastly and most importantly, the LSE brand stays with you and helps you long after you’ve graduated because employers rate it highly and it carries a lot of weight. I would be lying if I said I didn’t milk this for all that it’s worth.
