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:


Khondaker Sadman Rahman - Dhaka, Bangladesh

BSc Accounting and Finance, 1st year

The course structure of BSc Accounting and Finance at LSE not only has all the elements that are required to give me a head start to a career in professional accountancy, but it also provides ample flexibility to explore other areas of the world of social sciences, overall making it an invigoratingly rich experience. Once I had chosen my area of interest, LSE definitely stood out, being consistently ranked the top institution in the UK for my designated subject. Combined with its excellent global reputation, LSE was the place to be!

One of the best things to experience at LSE is its lively multicultural atmosphere. It is amazing how you can be sitting at a table in the LSE campus with friends from all over the globe, engaging in conversations ranging from light-hearted cultural jokes to serious issues like the global financial crisis.

Studying at one of the most academically vibrant places like LSE would have been only a dream yet to come true had I not received my full scholarship. The LSE Undergraduate Support Scheme Award has given me the opportunity to use my spare time more constructively, enabling me to get involved in a wide range of activities offered by the Student Union. Also, the LSE public lectures conducted by some of the most influential figures in the social sciences have helped me to perceive the problems of the world in a more analytical manner.

Upon graduation, I intend to obtain professional accreditation in Chartered Accountancy by securing an internship with one of the Big Four accounting firms.
