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.

Student profile:


Angel Naydenov - Sofia, Bulgaria

Social Anthropology, 1st year (Francesca Swirski Undergraduate Scholarship)

LSE has a world-wide reputation for the study of social sciences and the anthropology department makes no exception. With a tradition in anthropology spanning for more than a century and the bias towards the innovative and free thinking, LSE offers everything an anthropologist can aspire to. Specifically, the methodological orientation and empirical knowledge that I will receive from LSE will prepare me to conduct high-quality independent fieldwork in the areas of study of major interest to me.

What I like most about anthropology is the breadth and the depth of the discipline, its engagement with questions of paramount importance for understanding both the diversity and the universality in human societies. Studying anthropology is like a journey in search of meaning - outwards into the world and inwards into the self.

LSE is famous for its fascinating social life and international character resulting in global friendly networks which last for life. Finally, the location of LSE in the centre of London makes this university a cosmopolitan and vibrant institution which makes you feel like you’re on the crest of the wave of the modern world.

If it was not for the generous financial support LSE provides, it would be impossible for me to study here. The scholarship I was awarded gave me not only the sufficient funds for subsistence in the most expensive city in the UK but also confidence and ambition to excel in my academic development. 

I am determined to follow an academic career in the field of social anthropology. The realization of this career I dream of would take place in England, Bulgaria, and, temporarily, in any country where my research would take place.
