LSE – A Brit’s First Impressions

Having just graduated in July from the University of Birmingham and coming fresh out of an undergraduate degree, I thought the transition to Master’s at LSE wouldn’t be anything out of the ordinary – ‘It’s just another year at university,’ I told myself, ‘how different can it be?’ In answering that question, I was (pleasantly) surprised.

I’m a student from […]

The Meaning of International: First Seminar to the Last

During my Financing Health Care seminar, we were told to prepare a short presentation on how the health care system of our home country was organized and funded. I had two thoughts when I saw this assignment. One, it was going to be very easy because I just finished my first master’s degree in Bioethics at Case Western Reserve University. Part […]

My nervous journey to LSE

Hi! I am a 22-year-old recently graduated architect from India, now in London for this seemingly daunting task of pursuing my master’s in the midst of all the economists, mathematicians, and politicians.

Like everyone I assume, I had spent most of August and September worrying about baggage restrictions, reading lists, future prospects of my program, course choices, accommodation and most […]

To Study or Not to Study Gender?

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 […]

Reading Week

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 […]

My first week at LSE: A Reflection

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 […]

Reflections on First Year

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 […]

My London Season

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 […]

Team Up At LSE

“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 […]
