Hi, I am from India and have just been admitted into the LSE Msc in Finance and Economics. I was wondering whether anyone had done the course and whether they could guide me as to what the workload would be like. I have also received an offer from Warwick for the same programme. Which one is regarded better?

Any assistance is much appreciated! Thanks

I'm not familiar with that degree but have heard of up to 14 hours per day. I would choose LSE (better reputation in these two subjects, although the course itself might well be nothing better than at Warwick).

Hi Cyrus,

I also got an offer for the MSc Fin/Econ, and I was told by a current student it was definitely possible to work part time while completing the program.
So I don't think working 14h per day is really necessary (hopefully !)
Hope to see you next year

perhaps it's 14hrs per day only during the exam period, i.e. in May and early June...

hi guys,
well i hope it really isnt going to be that much hard work. however, i have spoken to different people, including the course director of the corresponding course at warwick business school, and he says that i would be expected to work atleast 8 hours a day in addition to our classes and lectures.
IM GONNA DIE!!!

that's quite a lot of work! it's like having full-time employment

by the way, how much are undergraduates at LSE supposed to work individually?

no idea about undergraduate courses.

ive been getting mixed replies regarding the workload at the MSc in fin and econ. some say that the work load would be around 14 hours a day, whereas others say that 4 hours will be enough.
i dunno, i guess i ll have to see once i get there.
