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.

French Society

Our aims are multiple: as LSE has a strong French community, we want to provide those French Students with a true national representative on campus as well as cater for the many non-french students who are interested in learning more about French language and culture. This year we've had our French electro party, and our French wine tasting events both of which were very popular. We collaborate with the Language centre, to organise sessions between French-learning students and French nationals to improve students' language skills. We have also worked with other London university societies on the Franco-British student conference which reinforces the academic relations between UK and French elite universities.

MSc Risk and Stochastics

Studying at LSE has helped me to expand both my personal and intellectual horizons. LSE is a small international community that offers the facilities for everyone to find and share their interests. The MSc Risk and Stochastics is a good vehicle for people who come from quantitative backgrounds and want to work in the financial or insurance industries. After obtaining a BSc in Mathematics, I needed to know how the theories apply in reality. This MSc, with its broad agenda that covers most of the maths and statistics that are crucial for a professional who works in the markets to understand, was just what I needed. LSE has an extraordinary market reputation that makes any ambitious student want to join it. I applied to LSE because I knew it would provide me with a solid background and increase my chances in launching a high calibre professional career. I especially enjoy the public lectures, careers events and conferences where you get to meet the most interesting people from all over the world, listen to their speeches and learn from their experiences.
