A prestigious reputation fuses with a dynamic campus atmosphere

LSE’s international renown is clear in the diversity of its students, who hail from over 100 countries to study at an institution at the cutting-edge of research in the social sciences—notable departments include economics, politics, law, sociology, social policy, geography, and philosophy. Located in the heart of central London, LSE has created green space on-campus, including several rooftop gardens as well as a special urban beekeeping society. Its vigorous academic environment is best suited for upper-level students who thrive on independent study—if this describes you, LSE may be a good option.

My experience in London has shown me that studying abroad is one of the most enriching experiences one can have in college. ”
