    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.

    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!

    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.

    Dedicated departments, passionate Academics, lost sense of puropse

    One of the deciding factors for my application to LSE, aside from the consistently high global ranking of the Sociology department, was its history, its dedication to solving inequalities and societal ills – which I feel the school as a whole has lost this core value. Don’t get me wrong, the more left-leaning departments such as Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Policy, are led by academics who continue to champion activism and political engagement, and I am so thankful to be surrounded by some of these thinkers. But with all this red-tape being wrapped around student engagement and the decision for the university to stay out of the recent UCLU strikes, you’ll easily forget that the school has produced some of the most influential activists – take for example the Gay Liberation Movement led by a former Sociology student. So I feel that this school has a lot to offer in terms of the people you’ll have the opportunity to interact with, but a lot more action is necessary to facilitate the activist student environment you’d expect out of a politics school.
