Read London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) Reviews
Studying at LSE is like a dream come true. It has the best of everything, from education to social events. Even during the pandemic the department has managed to keep everyone well connected and has provided all the support needed.
Learning experience is dreary and monotonous. Lectures are twice as long as they need to be. Classes are often taught by students resulting in a sub-par lesson. There are 20 weeks of teaching per academic year £9250 or £460 per week.
Awful. The standard of lecturing has been terrible during my two years here, overloading on reading so basically it is a self-study course, lecturers are rarely approachable, grades feel more like luck than based on skill and effort, not a good community feel, does not encourage entrepreneurship well but rather employment into banking or consulting, you cannot challenge your marks because of ‘double blind marking’ which is nonsense. Overall, I hated my time at LSE, yet paid £28,000 per year for my two-year masters and I completely regret giving this university my money for very little received in return. Avoid this school, that is all I can recommend.
The courses listed online for your programme will likely not actually be the ones available for you to take and they don't let you know until it's too late. The entire campus is under construction and it's all you can hear if you're in the library. The library itself is laughable, with nowhere near enough space to work, a ban on eating or drinking except in one small spot, and a truly heinous spiral staircase running through it. People will monopolise books for months without returning them when requested. The administration is the worst of it, however. Foreign students are treated like cash cows and milked for all they're worth. They pay higher fees than EU or UK students (and 70% of students are foreign). Once you're there, the admin has little incentive to actually make your experience pleasant, because the school's reputation is already good so why do they give a s***? Pastoral support is a joke, the mental health facfacilities will gaslight you. It's a complete farce.
Little care or concern for students - you come here for the reputation and little else. Half of the campus is currently a building site with vehicles whizzing around threatening to knock folks over. Honestly only here for the reputation.
The most helpful review has had a good experience and is not representative of the student population. School spirit is low and campus feels like an office rather than a welcoming environment. Student Union is inefficient e.g. take forever with room bookings. Academic advisor and Department Head (Economics) don't care about me. One of my teachers this year is too biased and voices his opinion about the school and faculty too much. The name is good that is all there is. There is hardly any support for work.
I am a first-year student in philosophy course.LSE's curriculum is an outright sham.Nobody cares about you here.We have one term paper per semester,my history teacher refers me to pay 20 pounds/hour at the writing center.There is no pressure throughout the term time,so nobody cares about study.It's the worst academic institution I've been.
Good uni but antisocial atmosphere sometimes. There's also this pressure to gain internships which only occurs at LSE. Lectures and classes are a waste of time. I'm just going for the name and the location (central London)
