I came to LSE because of its good reputation and the fact that the Actuarial Science programme at the School has always been regarded as one of the best actuarial courses in the UK.
The subjects I study in my degree are very interesting and closely relate to what I want to do in the future. The lecturers at LSE are really friendly and always make the lectures as interactive as possible.
The student community at LSE is very diverse and provides you with the opportunity to meet and interact with people from different parts of the world. Besides that, London is one of the busiest cities in the world and is a truly great place to study and live. LSE is located in the heart of the city and there are so many interesting places to visit nearby and London also has a great variety of entertainment.
The Careers Service at LSE is very helpful in providing advice and support when you're making job applications. I've also taken advantage of the talks and career events that have been put on and they have certainly given me a clear insight into my future career path and given me valuable opportunities to network with people from various firms.
