BSc Government and Economics @ LSE

reviewed on October 7, 2014

It was a bit overwhelming at first, but in a few weeks feels as if you have been there your whole life. London is the best city to be a student in ( other than being really expensive )! The best thing to do is to try as many new things as you possibly can even if it's something u never thought of doing. I tried women's rugby and broke my phone and my finger on the give it a a go session. Possibly the scariest experience of my life. But some of the girls who tried it with me and were equally unsuccessful at all the tackling and kicking became my closest friends (and proud members of the dance society)! Despite LSE reputation for having no social life, first few months are definitely about having fun and not even knowing what your 9am economics lecturers face looks like. But since the course is actually really interesting, you ll get into it soon and hopefully find a right balance . Otherwise It will take a lot of caffeine to catch up in time for exam season...

BSc Sociology @ LSE

reviewed on May 28, 2014

Studying sociology at lse is a fun challenge. The lectures and classes are of a high standard, however, there is a lot of room for individual academic freedom in terms of developing ideas and opinions on sociological theory. I feel that some parts of the course is very material driven, yet other parts such as the statistics part allows students to apply sociological knowledge to a greater extent. Contact time during the first year has been very fair and the availability of lectures and Graduate teaching assistants is rather flexible as one could book office hours twice a week if needed. In terms of assessments, there are formative (ungraded) and summative (graded) assessments which are evenly spread out throughout the entire year. I feel that the formative work is the most helpful form of assessment leading up to graded summative work. Feedback is always detailed and extensive. I have enjoyed my first year studying sociology at the LSE so far and it does live up to it's reputation as the top university in England for this particular course.

MSc Environmental Policy and Regulation @ LSE

reviewed on March 26, 2014

LSE delivered exactly what I was hoping for - a challenging academic experience along with a rich cultural experience. I made great friends who are now successful environmental professionals scattered across the globe. The campus isn't anything overly special but it is located in central London, which is an experience in itself. I lived in an LSE residence off campus, which was about a 40 minute walk along the scenic Thames or a 20 minute bus ride. I would recommend LSE to those interested in learning as much outside of the classroom as in it.

MSc Social Policy (Social Policy and Planning) @ LSE

reviewed on February 10, 2014

Classes were alright in general, some seminar discussions can be interesting. Overall teaching quality was not as engaging as my undergraduate experience in the US at a liberal arts college.

BSc Accounting and Finance @ LSE

reviewed on January 13, 2014

Being an international student is very hard for me but luckily LSE is a very international university. I thought my English Language is terrible at first since it is not my first language. However, the international environment setting lessen the effect. It was also a hard time for me to adjust being a student in the UK since I am a muslim who came from a muslim country. Due to the cultural difference and involvement of alcohol in social interactions, I was quite depressed for first couple of days. Luckily, the university provide other platforms for social activities other than going to clubs and alcohol like common rooms and societies that I can join. I am grateful for choosing this institution for my bachelor degree.
