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.

Hellenic Society

The Hellenic society of the LSE was developed in order to bring together students who are Greek or are interested in Greece. As a cultural society of a country with a very strong and impressive history, our aim is to organise events that reflect the history and the past of our country, while organising events with regards to contemporary financial and political issues of interest to Greece. We also hold careers events and, fully believing that entertainment is more than required during our university life, we also host many social events, jointly organised with other Cypriot and Hellenic Societies from London Uni's.

MSc Accounting and Finance

The main reasons for my choosing LSE were the renowned faculty, the excellent market reputation of the school, the high quality of teaching and the international diversity of the student body. Even though the programme was more theoretical than I expected, it offered me a solid background in finance and investments which was my main field of interest. Amongst my colleagues, I also had the chance to meet very interesting and remarkable personalities from all over the world. 

LSE for me is about never getting bored. Meeting different people, deadlines for essays, assignments, team projects, school trips, parties; you are always occupied with something. All these are perfectly combined with the extracurricular possibilities that London offers. LSE has helped me acquire a different perspective of the world and made me realise what I really want to do for the rest of my life.
