The people in my programme are amazing, I have worked internationally for five years and never come across a group of such diverse, interesting and inspiring people.  The programme is preparing me for a wide range of jobs in the public and/or private sector – it is focused, flexible and cutting edge. 

I chose LSE because it is the only programme that combines the interrelated and interdependent areas of regulation, policy, and planning, which makes it the most effective and exciting programme for environmental governance. Living and studying in London is wonderful and exciting; it is an education in itself.  The LSE campus is located perfectly for taking advantage of everything the city has to offer, and LSE provides excellent support services for making my experience here smooth and successful. 

Studying with such a great group of people, and benefiting from the high quality of our lectures and tutors has made my world bigger and more interesting.  It has made me aware of job opportunities and career paths that I would never have discovered otherwise, and given me the skills to take advantage of them. It has afforded me with the opportunity to attend lectures by world leaders in a variety of fields, and put me in touch with people who can help me achieve my academic and professional goals.
