Other skills-building opportunities for LSE undergraduates and MSc students

Maximise Your Potential| - an intensive two-week programme for undergraduates held at the end of Summer Term that offers opportunities to take part in an original research project, tailored language classes, a peer support scheme or bespoke careers advice.

MSc Dissertation Week|, also held at the end of Summer Term, is designed to support MSc students in planning, writing and making the most of their dissertation.

Learning World| - Moodle-based resources for a range of study-related skills, advice from LSE staff and links to other student-centred departments.

One to one advice - available for qualitative and quantitative subjects, and for writing support. See our academic writing| and quantitative study| pages.

How do I keep a record of what I've done?

For undergraduates, LSE has set up the Personal Development Aide Memoire| (PDAM) which, combined with your enhanced academic transcript, is an alternative to the Higher Education Achievement Record. The PDAM is an individual record (built in LSE for You) of the skills you develop and the activities you undertake beyond your academic studies, such as learning development events, work experience, volunteering and involvement in clubs and societies. Once completed, it will enable you to provide information and evidence for potential employers and others about how your activities have helped you develop skills in areas such as team working, communication and problem solving.
