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.

1st year, BSc Accounting and Finance

The BSc Accounting and Finance is a very interesting programme. It has a range of compulsory courses but also allows you to choose a number of courses that interest you.

There are so many things I like about LSE it's really hard to decide what I like the most. I really appreciate the different facilities, services and activities that are available to you as a student such as the library, computer rooms, different clubs and societies and sports facilities. Another positive feature about LSE is its location in the centre of London and the opportunities this gives you in the evening and at weekends.

LSE has helped me to 'think outside the box' and I have become more confident as I have adapted to different challenges during my time at the School and in London. The academic societies have offered me so many unique opportunities, for instance networking events have helped provide different avenues to start developing my future. The non-academic societies like sports clubs and music society have helped create a balance between work and social life at the School and have also helped me to develop skills and interests away from academia.

In the future, I would like to either further my studies or go into full time employment in one of the big accounting firms.
