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|.

Baltic Society

The Baltic Society brings together LSE students either coming from the Baltics or having a deep-rooted interest in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

BSc Accounting and Finance

When choosing universities, I was looking for a top-rated institution which would not only offer me excellent study conditions, but would be diverse, far-reaching institution with active society and lots of opportunities to develop you in all possible ways. The location, in the heart of London, was one of key criteria as well; as a student, I wanted to live in a fast-paced city with lots to do – I love how you can reach all parts of London within a few minutes and explore world-known sights, museums, go to huge night clubs or take a walk along the Thames. There are two places where anything is possible – LSE and London.

One thing that I like most about LSE is how one can concentrate on ones future career from the very first day. Recruiters are more than keen to come to LSE so we have a unique chance to network with professionals during special sessions; even first year students are encouraged to get involved. This really helps to get an insight into the industry you are interested in, get tips from people who already made their way to the top and plan your next steps. LSE also offers a broad range of career-related lectures and help sessions.

Although I am at the very early stage of my studies at LSE, I have already experienced the unique opportunities offered to me by LSE. First of all, LSE New Futures Fund allowed me not to worry about financial matters and concentrate on studies and extra-curricular activities instead. I am an active member of several societies, from accounting, investment to salsa; I am the treasurer of the LSESU Baltic Society. Thanks to the LSE Annual Fund we, a tiny society of the Baltics, with twenty members in total, are currently working on a major forum with prominent guest speakers from the Baltic region. In addition, I am a member of ‘Green Impact Team’ within the department of accounting, an activity I am very proud and excited about!
