At this point, two years ago, I was browsing through LSE’s postgraduate course list almost everyday. If time and money weren’t an issue, I would have studied so many courses but this is no ideal world. So in the end, I settled for MSc Gender, Development and Globalisation. It’s quite a mouthful so let’s call it GDG, as it’s commonly known […]
What a great invention, “reading week”. Whilst I know some people are jetting off and surely taking all their books with them, or digital copies at least, I will be catching up on all the reading I’ve missed already.
I will write back here after reading week with my thoughts about how it all went, as it’s a rather new […]
If there’s one thing I’ve learnt in my freshers’ week at London School of Economics, it’s that you guys love to queue. Whether it was queuing for registration, queuing to get into the post-graduate party (and failing), or even joining the virtual queue of students waiting to sign up for modules on LSE for you, I have to say […]
Hi! It’s nice to meet you. Let me introduce myself – my name is Srshti and I’m a second year Maths and Economics undergrad. I’ve lived just outside London my entire life and this made the transition to a London university a lot easier. There are loads of advantages to living in London throughout the academic year, some of […]
For every student, studying at the LSE is a dream. It is one of the world’s best institutions; LSE is the place where History is made every year. Graduates from LSE are a force to reckon with in the world. This is the place where we learn to believe that we are meant to conquer the world. And we […]
Before beginning my year at LSE, my parents and I spent the summer watching a collection of British television shows thanks to Masterpiece, the United States producing partner to many BBC and iTV favorites, including Downton Abbey.
It was one series in particular that gave us a catchphrase as I prepared for my move to London. The Buccaneers, which aired […]
“Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” – Rita Pierson
As my undergraduate career came to a close, I had a crisis of confidence. I hadn’t applied for any professional roles (oops!) and I hadn’t (yet!) been accepted […]
Its over. Done. My Master’s program is now in the past, and already there’s a whole new batch of students who walk the corridors and fill the library chairs at at the London School of Economics. I’d be lying if I said I don’t somewhat envy them. I am bemused by how quickly it’s zoomed by; as if my […]
It once appeared difficult to conceive. Now, it is reality. For those of you who are about to embark on your LSE journey, the end of the road appears far and unclear. So it is for most of your degree. Present necessities and preoccupations sap your energy, while the future, that imperceptible state, appears far away and demands little […]
I am acutely conscious as I write this that it is exam season; ergo any moment not spent poring feverishly over stacks of reading material is considered a moment squandered. Still, I plunge on, in the hope that you will squander a few minutes to read on about another wonderful talk that I recently attended.
On 21st May, Prof. Gerd […]
