    Great learning environment

    I like LSE’s educational atmosphere and rigorous academic standards. Here I feel like I am challenged daily to learn and understand the world in a incredibly diverse and intellectual environment. I love the library and how it can accomodate us all.

    Learning environment

    I like that the professors are experienced in their field and have a lot of time for students. I would recommend it to others. However it is a very exclusive university in terms of price, which does not facilitate the best talent.

    One of the best universities for economics!

    The professors at LSE are really qualified and their slides make the students relate to the course content better. The accomodations provided are in the heart of London and are easy to access, with catering provided twice. Socializing is very easy at LSE as it is one of the University of London affiliates and many students from other colleges can be approached easily. The student union has a strong voice and overall the University makes a better person and not just an academic scholar.

    unparalleled standard and quality of teaching

    I am currently completing my masters at LSE, and have learned more in three months than I did for most of my undergraduate. They expect a lot of you, however in return you receive the best quality education. The class sizes are small, lecturers and professors are available weekly and the range of topics and research specialities is vast.

    Choose wisely

    From my personal experience and what I’ve heard from other people your satisfaction at the LSE will greatly vary depending on the department. My own is very small and very proactive in providing us support and contact with teachers and academics, fostering a lovely community which I feel very comfortable in. But many of my friends in larger departments don’t feel this way, and I’ve heard many stories of over-work and loneliness. The corporate environment is also very taxing, even if you have no involvement in it. I would recommend finding creative societies to balance all that out!

    Really improved my critical thinking

    I took the master’s programme in criminal justice policy at LSE and was really impressed by most of my modules. They encourage critical thinking and no matter what your opinion professors expect you to back it up rigorously. __On the negative side some of the courses were poorly planned. Also, I was unhappy with the analysis of gender and the lack of discussion of alternatives to prison. I think prison abolition is a really important part of understanding the history and present-day criminal justice system. All in all, I am very glad I chose LSE but I know that my experience will be very different to many of my classmates, because we all took different modules. I was lucky with my advisor, who was absolutely lovely and always asked how I was, but I know others got advisors who didn’t reply to them for weeks, or sometimes didn’t reply at all. I also know that someone studying criminal justice policy at LSE will have a hugely different experience to someone studying, eg. finance. If you’re on the fence I advise you to check out some of the professors’ publications and see if you find them interesting.

    Isolation station

    LSE can be a very isolating place; very corporate, and very few resources available to aid the mental health and general wellbeing of undergraduate students. It’s an institution that only values being at the top of the fields of research, so undergraduates get left behind and are forced to fend for themselves. There’s a distinct lack of diversity in the curriculum and the faculty and a lot of the time, students find themselves teaching themselves the course content.

    Great university

    Full of intelligent student and faculty! The workload is definitely a lot, and sometimes it can feel like it’s neverending but the social life makes up for it! I’ve met some great people as well, all from different backgrounds. If you do have struggles with mental health, the wellbeing centre is great with supporting you.
