    Documenting my student life in video blogs: The LSE-Fudan Exchange Programme

Documenting my student life in video blogs: The LSE-Fudan Exchange Programme

A guest post written by Firzanah Firdaus, undergraduate student in the Department of Statistics

My terrible teenage crises (think boys, puberty and mean girls) were slightly more bearable thanks to YouTube. Every time I had what was then seen as a ‘first world problem’ I would type: ‘how to get over your first heartbreak’ on the search bar and 15 minutes […]

Working in Summer?!

Congratulations to all who have made it through the tough examinations period! And for those who are in their last few days, you are almost there!

Following the exams, we all have plans to sleep (and sleep and sleep), soak up the sun and enjoy the long days. There have been some pretty sunny days in London the past week […]

The people you’ll meet at LSE

When everyone asked what I was most excited for about studying abroad, I always talked about how I couldn’t wait to travel the rest of Europe, see the sights, and make it to places I had only dreamt of. And it’s come true; I’ve only made it to Amsterdam, Edinburgh, and Venice so far, but each of those trips […]

Of sunsets and seagulls (part two)

Whenever I look back on the photos I took during the trip to Brighton, I always feel incredibly grateful that the weather was brilliant. By brilliant, I mean that the sky was clear and the sun shone bright, which is not a common occurrence in the UK. It would be an understatement to say that the view at the […]

Of sunsets and seagulls (part one)

After multiple postponements, my friends and I were finally able to go on a trip to Brighton last Sunday. Since we all live in the same hall, it was easy to meet up and set off to the tube station. We bought tickets (£7 return only!!) from St Pancras to Brighton, only to realise halfway through that the train […]

From the urban Arctic to LSE

Whilst typing, I am 10,000 feet up in the air. Looking down, I see a landscape of mountains covered in snow and the sun dipping on the curve of the earth, bathing in a ridiculously beautiful shade of pink. What I see is Northern Norway, the most developed region in the Arctic, my home. From up here, the Arctic […]

Itchy Soles, Itchy Souls: A Trip To Cambridge

On Saturday I took a trip to Cambridge from London, with the intention of seeing a new place that was close enough that I wouldn’t feel guilty to bail on the heaps of work that sat on my desk at home, but far enough that it was distinct from the London hustle and bustle.

I signed up for this trip […]

We met the Queen! (Really)

Two weeks ago, a group of fifty of us General Course students had the opportunity to spend the weekend at Cumberland Lodge. They often say you don’t appreciate what you have until it’s gone, and this weekend at Cumberland Lodge reminded me how much I have missed the clean air, silent evenings, and starry night skies that you can […]

A Life in Boxes and Suitcases

I can’t believe that less than nine months ago, I arrived in the UK and London for the first time, in awe of the city’s night lights and the famous landmarks that I’d seen countless of times in the movies and in television shows. Coming out of Heathrow after a dreadfully long immigration queue with two huge bags of […]

Taking time out in the Cotswolds

It’s hard to think of the year of study as anything but study. Study can appear to take over everything, with thoughts about the course materials and what you are learning creeping into every waking moment and, dare I say, the occasional dream. Depending I guess on so many factors, this “immersion” in the content of your studies can […]
