The London School of Economics is holding a Graduate Open Evening on Wednesday 10 November for people interested in Master's and research degrees starting in 2000.
LSE, based between Aldwych and Kingsway in the heart of London's legal, financial and media world, is rated along with Oxford and Cambridge, as one of the top three research institutions in the UK. It is a world centre for research across the full range of the social sciences.
A first Graduate Open Evening held last year attracted more than 700 people. This year potential applicants will have the opportunity to find out about programmes, including new Master's degrees in:
Gender & Social Policy,
Gender & Development
International Health Policy,
Nationalism & Ethnicity,
Philosophy Policy & Social Value, and
Four programmes in media (Global Media & Communications; Media and Communications Regulation; New Media, Information and Society; Gender and the Media).
Tim Rogers, Student Recruitment Manager, said: 'LSE research covers much more than Economics and Political Science. We have 18 academic departments here and 27 research centres. Master's degrees, full-time and part-time, are taken by social workers, lawyers, accountants, bankers, teachers - a huge range of people who study both to advance their careers and for personal enjoyment.
'But taking a course is a big decision. Some employers can help pay course fees but all these arrangements take time. It may seem early but people thinking of September 2000, should come along to the evening and plan ahead. It is an ideal opportunity to talk to academic staff and current students about what courses are available.'
The Graduate Open Evening is from 6-8.30pm at LSE, Houghton Street, London WC2A 2AE. For further information call 020 7955 6143/7440 or see the website at http://www.lse.ac.uk
