    Hi! Do you get to choose all your courses for your first year or do you have to pick from a selected few like in this link http://www.lse.ac.uk/resources/calen...Management.htm ? Are the courses in the link just a guideline or a requirement?
    Also, thank you for taking the time to answer all these questions!
    Depends on the course, but these kind of pages show the correct thing. So, yes, for Management, there's not much choice in the first year.

    Has the average student at LSE got 10A*s for GCSE and 4A*s for GCE A levels?
    No. Google studentroom's LSE Stalking Pages for a rough idea.

    a completely different kind of question: visiting cambridge i saw that loads of people walked around in couples, is this also the case for lse, how common are relationships?
    Um, as common as everywhere else? I've been to Cambridge and I wasn't aware it was above the national average there. LSE does have a bit of rep for people marrying young in order to get on with their careers but I don't think that's very true in reality. People do get into relationships more on average when you go to any university.

    Hi,
    I have a question regarding the paperwork following A level results. How long after results day do we get sent the registration forms or any paperwork that needs filling?

    Reason being that I need to go to India around the 25th of August, but I don't know if that's too early after results day.

    Thanks!

    As the title states, I'm a current LSE student. The process can be quite long and I found when applying last year that there are numerous questions I needed the answer to which I couldn't find answers for. I have been at LSE for 2 months so far and I'm loving my experience. I hope to answer any queries you people may have... fire away

    What would you say is the main reason, if any, why people choose to firm at LSE?Also, do you know many IB (international baccalaureate) students, and do they seem to get on well with the workload?

    Hi there are specialist postgrad halls. There are LSE halls and intercollegiate. I'd prefer LSE personally so there is Roseberry Hall which have a postgrad wing but also look into intercollegiate such as Lillian Penson and a couple of others. Most are good for postgrads!

    I personally think a reason is the prestige. I think LSE is very prestigious and very hard to get admittance for. Luckily there are other perks also. Yes, there are IB students who cope equally as well.

    Received an unconditional offer at postgraduate level today. I'm currently wondering about the following:

    1. Is it common for full-time students to do internships during their studies?

    2. I have heard that many prospective students tend to begin applying for internships or after-graduation jobs before they've even started their studies at LSE - is this true?

    1) Students can do internships in the spring but the most common type is in the Summer so no its not during their studies, its during the holidays. This is because some can be 6-8 weeks.

    2) It may be true for some but I've never heard of that. Usually, students apply for spring weeks in spring of their first year, then internships in their second. This process may be different for postgrads but as I'm an undergrad, I wouldn't be able to provide an answer for postgrads.

    Hope that helps!

    1) I like bankside because there are so many people. On campus, I see a lot of people I know and it's because I'm at Bankside, because its such a big hall.

    2) This is a very subjective question and I can answer this with bias and say Bankside. But a helpful answer is that LSE accomodation (Bankside, Passfield, Roseberry and Carr Saunders) are all really good. High Holborn is good for international students also.

    3) Roseberry Myddleton Wing yes, but thats only a part of the hall and there are any undergrads there also.

    4) For a hall, the food is good at bankside. There may be a day you don't like the food but overall it's good. Its many different hot food dishes which alternates a lot which comes with a dessert option too.

    Hope that helps!

    Hello!

    What are the sport clubs/societies like compared to those of other universities of London? I am keen to join a team for swimming and atheletics and whether the practices are close and whether a specific accommodation would be recommended (in terms of whether it'll be closer to the location to train)

    Thankss 😊😊😊😊
