Felix Oblin (2019 graduate)
I’m from Vienna, Austria where I completed my secondary school with a normal Austrian high school diploma (“Matura”), I spent my compulsory civil service as a paramedic.
By joining BSc Finance at LSE, you join a family of smart, exciting students and teachers with an energetic spirit for how finance drives the world - a demanding, but very stimulating environment that will certainly give you some of the best years of your life.
The best feature of the programme so far have been the people I’ve met here. Everybody shares a drive to do something in this world and is somehow into Finance, but at the same time the group is extremely diverse, making it even more exciting. Almost weekly extracurricular activities within our Finance family help to form strong friendships, or to have inspiring debates with your professors over a glass of wine.
Among the many things that are very unique about the BSc Finance at LSE is the dialogue and feedback culture we have with our professors and programme managers. Regardless if it's an idea for an event, a problem with a class teacher, help for our student societies or even structural improvements of a course, there is always somebody that you can approach directly and talk about it - and actions do follow.
