Student life


The Students' Union represents LSE students and aims to ensure that your time at the School is not just about studying but is also as enjoyable as possible. The Union organises entertainment and funds over 150 student societies covering a wide range of interests. These societies add a huge amount to students’ experience of LSE and of London. The variety of societies and activities change with the interests and initiative of each new group of students; an A-Z listing of the current student societies can be found on the Students' Union website.

Dalia Ghanem - Egypt

At LSE, I have been exposed to state-of-the art research in econometrics, and it has been a great opportunity to be part of such a vibrant academic environment. Education is the best asset anyone can have and the best means of empowering all of us to give back to our countries and to our world. I cannot express my gratitude for selecting me for this scholarship and providing me with the opportunity to fulfil my dream.
