    Good professors, mediocre structure administration

    I took a course within the Sociology department which I felt was mislocated and should have been under another department. Otherwise, the professors were excellent, knowledgeable and caring of their students. The programme did feel rushed as I feel that one year is too little time for a Master’s. Career services were not very helpful at looking for jobs within the Human Rights sector as they did not have sufficient knowledge about it.

    Not a great experience

    The course content was, on the whole, interesting, however the reliance on phd students as teachers is awful considering the tuition fees. The heavy workload and course organisation more generally favours students who can dedicate the entirety of their time to studying as they are not employed full or part time. Relatedly, there is also a lack of support more generally for economically disadvantaged students. Mental health services are also very poor and should be improved and made more accessible.
    As a working class student, I find the atmosphere of the university very alienating and feel very isolated here due to lack of people like myself.
    Overall, I have hated my experience here for a number of reasons, however the Hare Krishna man who hands out free food at lunchtime has been a constant source of light for me in a very depressing space.

    Inadequate mental health resources

    Inadequate mental health services, minimal contact hours, nice Hare Krishna. Discrepancies in standard of teaching across courses. Minimal financial support. Should include a diversity of assessment types

    Heavy on Academics, Opportunities for Fun

    I enjoy my time at LSE overall. I am a second-year undergraduate and have found the academics very heavy, but also relatively fulfilling. We get a lot of reading (300-700 pages per week) for classes but normally I enjoy the topics discussed. Because of the intensity, it can be difficult to find time for social activities, but it’s just about trying. LSE can be very isolating with everyone keeping their head down in the library/working at home, but if you are in halls, join (and stay active!) in societies, and go out in London you will be happy.

    Academic and career support

    LSE helps students to reach their academic full potential and allows them to succeed in terms of their careers and dreams. LSE continues to be the top university in the UK for human sciences. Not only do they support students to pursue their careers in international organisations, LSE also allows students to pursue their careers in banking and consulting firms.

    University Life

    I think the uni has an academic push, which allows students to reach their full potential and lots of resources, such as the library/academic teachers, online resources, etc. It also has good career help centres. Good student financial support too. A lot of societies and events.

    Definitely worth it

    Coming to LSE from another continent seemed like a daunting idea but the challenge has been completely worth it.
    I am studying Bsc. International Relations (IR) and the course has a fantastic design. I love the way my lectures are structured followed by the in-depth discussions in seminar. It has met my expectations. I also study history as an outside option but that course has not been satisfactory. The seminars are very structured but the lectures feel quite abrupt.
    Overall, my course (IR) has been incredible. The readings for each week are challenging but still fun to go through. My understanding of the subject has increased immensely in just the first few months so I am very excited how this course enhances my knowledge.

    Very well established network of support throughout the university

    The academic environment is great, it is intense but that should be expected. There is a lot of academic and administrative support, and the university body is open to discuss topics such as mental health and sexual harassment and actually introduce measures. Due to the fact that it is based in London, you have to consciously make an effort to meet people and make friends, since it does not come as organically (everyone is rushing to get somewhere all the time), but the university, especially on departmental level makes efforts to create informal situations to help that. As well purely academically it is ok to take classes outside of your department which interests you so that is also great. The fact that the campus is in Central London does have an added value. Overall highly recommend it.
