Research Impact

LSE's impact in the digital world

This February, the LSE research impact website is showcasing some of the impact our academics have had in the digital world. Two case studies have been released that demonstrate LSE-led digital advances for business, governments and consumers.

Helping organisations harness the power of innovative IT technologies - PA Consulting Group commissioned Dr Carsten Sørensen to identify more innovative and strategic ways to use IT systems in organisations.

Designing the world’s first glasses-free 3D television - Professor Henry Wynn led a collaboration to improve the design of a key component in TVs and mobile devices.

What's new

Volunteer to help new students settle into life at LSE with the Off Campus Support Scheme

Student Services are currently recruiting mentors for new undergraduates who will not live in halls when they start at LSE next year.

 

Mentors make contact in early September to introduce themselves and answer questions about being an LSE student. They meet their mentees during Welcome Week and then periodically throughout the year.

 

It’s not time intensive and fits around your studies. You could make a real difference to the experience of new students. You will also develop your skills and have your contribution recorded in your PDAM.

 

Find out more and apply now at lse.ac.uk/offcampussupportscheme.

Are you a first or second year UK undergraduate from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background? Take part in a one-hour focus group and receive a £15 book token

The LSE Widening Participation team invite first and second year students from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background to participate in a research project on information, advice and guidance for students as they prepare for higher education.

 

You’ll participate in a one-hour focus group on Tuesday 15 March with other LSE students, discussing a number of issues such as:

  • How you chose your current course of study, and any support or information sources you used to help make that choice.
  • Your expectations of higher education, and how your experience has matched or contrasted with those expectations.
  • Any aspects of higher education you wish you’d known more about before you started your current course.

Each participant will recieve a £15 book token. For more information, click here. If you'd like to sign up, fill in the online form
