I chose LSE because it has the best Economic History department in the world. I've always preferred independent study and research to endless classes and lectures and that's the structure of the Economic History degree here. Despite this, the tutors are always approachable and helpful, and the classes are small, well structured and relaxed. In addition, the main Library is very well stocked for EH courses and I have never been short of resources.

For me the best thing about studying at LSE is the variety and calibre of staff and students you get here. LSE is full of ambitious people and it has helped me to realise that you can't set goals high enough. It is incredibly difficult to be an under-achiever here and I've learned how to balance a fabulous social life with a demanding study load. In terms of unique opportunities, the Careers centre hosts talks and careers fairs all year long which provided an avenue to excellent internship opportunities and contacts in leading firms for me.

After my BSc I plan on completing a Master's in Management, hopefully staying on at LSE.
