The London School of Economics and Political Science Reviews

Latest Reviews


Middle and upper class suited university. No consideration of working class students or their values other than a mere graduation fund to help with cost of graduation. Very capitalist institution and no real support for careers for those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Teaching is good as most professors are at forefront of their research field but this also makes them subsequently Busy and unapproachable at times.


Pros: Great name. Great careerhub. Lecturers and (most) classmates are genuinely smart people. Cons: Intense studies. Very stressful. Low student satisfaction. Social life mostly limited to clubbing and this eventually gets boring. Study drug culture.
