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.

Brazilian Society

The Brazilian Society was established in 2003, and has grown rapidly to include 190 members, one third of whom are Brazilian, and two thirds of whom are people interested in Brazilian politics, culture and its famous parties. The Society's activities include social events and lectures; it also hosts a Brazilian discussion group every week to discuss Brazilian current events.

Ana Paula Fernandes Jubran

I chose to study at LSE because it is one of the top ranked institutions in economics and political science. What pleased me most about studying at LSE is the diversity of the students: the MPA programme has students from a broad range of nationalities with different backgrounds and varied work experience. Being at LSE means exchanging experiences with students from around the entire world. After a theoretical class or lecture, you then have the opportunity to discuss the application of the theories to a broad range of countries and regions. 

I also really valued the combination of courses (economics, econometrics, and political economy), as it provides students with an overview of other subjects related to public administration. 

LSE helped me with several aspects of my personal development. It offers extra-curricular activities such as Excel training, presentation skills training and life coaching. Additionally, as vice-president of the MPA student association, I experienced working with a team of brilliant people from different nationalities and professional backgrounds, which was extremely enriching.
