The Students@LSE Blog holds a special place in my heart because I went through all the articles on here during those nervous nights before I moved to London to pursue my MSc. I took most of the advice here so seriously. I came across this article on the blog ‘Reading Week: Exactly What Is Needed for The Road Ahead’ […]
My program, MSc. in City Design and Social Science, falls in the Department of Sociology. When compared with LSE’s Department of Economics, in terms of numbers of students, Sociology seems invisible. As a graduate student, constantly tussling about whether or not I was choosing the right program, this difference constantly confused me. However, now having completed my Michaelmas Term […]
Thinking about doing the MiM at LSE? Read on…
A year ago, I was in the same position as some of you who are reading this post- doing my research on suitable options for my Masters’ degree. I had a clear idea on what I wanted to do; I wanted a degree in management that gave me equal insights into […]
This was a question I asked myself a lot when I was in third year and trying to decide what to do with the rest of my life. 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.
I’m a student from […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
