We’re almost there! Two-thirds of our course is done and we just have a short leg of the race left to run. That being the case, I figured now would be the perfect time to interview a few of my classmates, from MiM Class of 2019, to get an idea about what they like about the course and what […]
As Lent Term comes to a close, and exam season is just around the corner, it’s no secret that most of us are starting to feel the insurmountable pressure looming ahead of us. Yet looking back on the past seven months, my time with the Department of Law has been a challenging, enriching and truly unforgettable experience, and I […]
A good, happy and safe place, at a comfortable price, is essential to your student experience. As a new student moving to London, finding accommodation can be a very daunting task, and it is made even more complicated by all the new terms and concepts required to understand in order to judge your options.

Naturally, pursuing a master’s wasn’t the only option available to me, and I knew many people who had survived without one just fine. Besides, taking on an extra degree meant getting […]
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.

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 […]
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.
