    Stuck between opting for College Hall, Connaught Hall and Bankside.

    My parents think Bankside is too long of a walk

    Any advice?

    Morning all,

    I'm a UK student (crazy, right?); about to firm my offer to read Politics and Philosophy in September. Anyone else on this course?

    And does anyone know about decent societies? I seen some stomach-churning ones -- entrepreneurs society, hedge fund society (shudder) -- are there any lefties here or am I going to have to chill at Goldsmiths during breaks?

    LSE actually has the largest labour society, I'm more of a leftie (brother is at goldsmiths ) I think there are plenty of sports and stuff but I'm sure there are plenty of good societies and its London, worlds your oyster

    I'm planning on cycling there's a nice route and decent facilities to lock bikes at both ends - just make sure you have adequate insurance, protection, and a bike that isn't too flashy!!

    I am staying at bankside now, its a 20 minute walk - possibly your only exercise whilst at uni! Its got good shops about 30 second walk away and the accommodation itself is amazing, especially the bar in the basement.

    My close friend is on that course and apparently its very enjoyable - especially Ph103.

    The LSE has a reputation for being one of the most left-wing universities in the world, don't worry.

    Cheers. tbh I was thinking more along the lines of an 'eat the rich' society than Labour, but beggers, choosers.

    Got an offer for straight economics are there any straight econ students out there who could give us an idea of;
    1) what the course is like is the first term for new students, do you hit the ground running?
    2) how much maths and essay writing you do (i.e. is it 90% maths and the rest kind of essay writing)?
    3) how much free time do you have, is it as bad as the student satisfaction suggests?
    4) What do you do in classes that you don't do in lectures?
    5) can you realistically have a job in term time?
    6) What are the lecturers like?

    1) Yes you hit the ground running, especially in MA100 and ST102 (MA103 if you take it). In week 1 you will feel out of your depth.

    2) Its completely dependant on the options you take, you can choose MA103 in your first year and have 0 essays.

    3) Depends what you want to do, most of my straight econ friends go out 2/3 times a week. If you aren't an IB obsessed, 100% seeking person - then the LSE has a good social life. Not as bad as student satisfaction suggests.

    4) Teachers go through homework and examples with you, there is interaction between students and teachers where you can ask questions, and they are compulsory.

    5) No. Pick between a social life and work, and the LSE limits you to 10 hours per week.

    6) Very mixed - as for your first year they are acceptable.

    Is it possible to take MA103 if you're doing straight econ?
