Why LSE is great

(5)·By Sameera A·Accounting· Jun 2023
So far my university experience has been great. After worrying that I wouldn't be able to fit in as I commute, I have made great friendships. The quality of teaching is amazing and each teacher cares about their class and keeps everyone engaged. The workload does tend to overflow at times and the exams are difficult but this is to be expected.

My LSE experience

(5)·By Anshika Y·Economics· Jun 2023
Wonderful environment to meet like-minded people. Very intense but also able to prioritise me-time. Good funding and love the buildings. Overall, probably one of the best decisions I made in my entire life is to come to LSE.

Aerospace Engineering, Graduate

(5)·By Mike M·Aerospace Engineering· Jul 2021
Freshers week was nerve wracking - Having to meet new people was a scary experience, yet enriching. I feel getting over that first hurdle at University sets you up to run the race. My accommodation at LSE was great. The rooms are modern and you can instantly tell they have been decorated with quality. The facilities at LSE are top of the range. Frequently replaced and refurbished to keep them at a top level. The course touched on topics that other universities did not have on their curriculum. This meant we learnt more and broadened our knowledge of aerospace City life was exciting and lively. London is always busy and therefore there is always something to do. I love the city life.

Sociology, Year 3

(5)·By Elise C·Sociology· Jul 2021
Really fun, made most of my friends during freshers week. Halls played more of a role in this than my degree subject though. Halls are very sociable. Quite expensive though, but in central london so makes sense. Student Union and library are amazing building. Sadly no on campus sport facilities, have to travel out of London for university sport facilities. Lecturers and professors all at the top of their field so very inspiring. The course content is varied and interesting. Living in London is the best decision I ever made, I've been here nearly 3 years now and I'm never leaving. There's never a dull moment in the city, always something going on! Plus you have the tube which is a big win.

Great uni made better by being in central London

(5)·By dani k·Anthropology· Oct 2018
The teaching is incredible and the lecturers in Economics and History were the best at what they do. We had a lot of flexibility to pursue interests and do modules outside of our courses, to the extent that in my 3rd year I worked 4 days a week and still managed to get a First. I don't think many other unis make this posible, which is great, as you are in central London and want to be able to see all the shopping, nightlife, jobs, etc. I didn't live in student accommodation, but my friends did and it looked clean and safe. A lot of people think LSE is too hardworking to have a good social life, but the sports clubs are great and I met loads of friends through football.

Mathematics, Year 1

(5)·By Megan L·Mathematics· Oct 2018
LSE provides wide range of facilities with top quality services. Teaching and lectures are very good and the recording system is a brilliant idea. They have many active clubs and societies, social events and meetings which makes university fun and enjoyable.
They provide good and efficient services from application to fees payment. The student portals are also convenient and easy to access. Many information can be obtained easily through these student portal.
The student accommodations have good locations and price.

Cherry on the cake bachelors!

(5)·By Neela L·Economics· Jun 2023
My experience studying at the LSE was absolutely incredible! I can't recommend this university and my course enough! I had the privilege of earning a BSc in Economic History from 2019-2022, and let me tell you, the skills and knowledge I gained during those three years are truly invaluable. From transcribing information from sources dating back to the early 19th century to developing both academic and soft skills, I feel like I've grown immensely as a person. Despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, I still believe that my time at LSE was the best three years of my life. The workload was definitely intense, but it was always manageable thanks to the incredibly supportive community of LSE students. Trust me, if you're considering studying at the LSE, you won't regret it!

Law, Year 1

(5)·By Bethany S·Law· Mar 2019
Great! LSE provided lots of both in and out of department welcome activities and the department had a clear plan for us to be introduced into the area of law.. I stay at Bankside House. It is more expensive than accommodation outside of London, but that was expected. My room is massive and I love the halls.. All very modern and clean. All I could want.. . . It is academically demanding, as expected at an institution like LSE. Nonetheless, it is very enjoyable and thought-provoking and I look forward to 2nd year, where I will be able to choose some modules, as opposed to this year.

The LSE experience is like a rollercoaster ride - thrilling, challenging, and occasionally terrifying, but ultimately worth every moment
