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|.

BSc Economics (1st year)

Economics is a discipline that combines theory and practical solutions to an array of issues through analysing from multiple dimensions as well as the usage of various mathematical and statistical models. The use of mathematical models to understand how the economic forces work is what drew me into studying Economics.

LSE offers an unquestionable excellence in teaching, with expert lecturers in their own field. Moreover, its central location in the heart of London widens and challenges my perceptions over and above the learning at the LSE. Another uniqueness of LSE lies in the course LSE100 undertaken by all undergraduates; this course has allowed me to meet other students who are undertaking very different degree programmes and share our views together. LSE also offers many other events and activities outside the classroom which exposes me to new things. For instance, public lectures by prominent figures that highlight current issues and career events held by the leading companies from various industries. Being at the forefront of a dynamic, fast-paced world and being surrounded by students from different disciplines, I have come to realise the importance of challenging one’s potential and the conventional beliefs.
