    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.

    Don’t believe the antis lol

    The study body is so diverse and interesting, social policy teachers are engaging and care about their students, and there’s lots of recourses for students (I guess because the LSE gets a lot of funding). It is quite career focused but personally I don’t mind this because I find guidance helpful, as someone who’s not sure how to convert their degree into a job. At the same time, many people have no clue what they want to do in the future!

    Terrible Social Life, Lazy Teachers, Full of sweats

    I am absolutely shocked by the lack of social life at this university. I was warned about it and I saw the awful student satisfaction but I thought that given I’m a party girl I would find my people. I was wrong. I have lovely friends whom I adore but the university is very judgemental. There is such a range of backgrounds and a lot of these don’t approve of the British party culture. If you’re looking for a party I wouldn’t recommend it. If your looking to work a lot for 3 years and have no social life this is your place. The uni is also terrible, they don’t care about their students they don’t give you any help but because they are highly selective people get good grades, it’s the people, not the institution.

    Loved it

    I really enjoyed my time at LSE – academically it was great, however, it’s definitely not a typical “student experience” but I think that’s down to living in London. Having said that, I met some really interesting people from all over the world.

    The diversity and rigor

    Amazing environment and professors. LSE offers a one of a kind experience. Bringing in talent from across the world, it’s the perfect place to be exposed to ideas and perspectives and learn not only from books and professors but also from fellow classmates.
