I recently took part in a UCAS fair in London aimed at prospective students wanting to find out more about university study, especially those in Year 12. My mission was to introduce them to LSE and showcase the wide array of programmes available. As an LSE student who has greatly benefitted from my time here, I was excited to share my experiences and meet new people.

Uggla Family Scholar Francisco and I joined LSE Outreach Coordinator Nazia at the UCAS fair in London!

Interacting with these students was incredibly rewarding. I enjoyed answering their questions and addressing their concerns about studying at LSE. Their curiosity and enthusiasm were infectious, and it was gratifying to help them envision what life at LSE could be like.

Among the questions asked by the prospective students, one of the most popular question was what are the part-time job opportunities available at LSE.

Here are some examples of part-time jobs offered by LSE that I spoke about during the fair:

  • Student Mentor
  • LSE Student Blogger
  • Student Ambassador
  • Roles within the LSE Student Union

I encourage you to regularly check the LSE Careers website for new job listings, as application deadlines can vary throughout the academic year.

At the fair, I also shared some key advice with prospective students:

  • Focus on the Personal Statement: Highlight your passions and enthusiasm.
  • Research the programme: Explore course overviews and module details on the LSE website.
  • Work hard: Demonstrate your commitment and dedication.

Also, students were particularly fascinated by the Uggla Family Scholars Programme which both myself and Francisco (who also took part at the UCAS fair) receive scholarships through. They were keen to learn about the benefits of the Programme and how to apply, with many questions about the mentorship opportunities provided.

Sharing my experiences at LSE and discussing the Uggla Family Scholars Programme didn’t feel like work at all. I genuinely enjoyed meeting high school students and offering insights about university life and scholarship opportunities!
