What I love most about studying at LSE is that it has one of the most enviable locations in the world. You have everything you could possibly want right on your doorstep, with landmarks such as St. Pauls Cathedral, the Royal Courts of Justice and Westminster as well as the British Library and the British Museum within a very close proximity. Furthermore the public lecture series has given me the opportunity to hear the views of some eminent speakers.
I applied to the LSE because of its reputation. The School is one of the most respected academic universities in the world and has a very multicultural atmosphere.
Politics and Philosophy is an invigorating and stimulating degree that helps to open your mind in terms of considering all the important facets of how and why humanity rules itself today. The two subjects complement each other well, each helping to deepen understanding and provide new avenues of enquiry.
In my first year I joined the LSE widening participation scheme. This enabled me to engage with many different activities external to life at LSE including engaging with prospective students and communicating with LSE's various alumni around the world. This opportunity has given me a platform to communicate to people I would not have had the chance to otherwise and connect with a greater diversity of people.
When I graduate I intend to apply to work in central government or go on into further study.
