Social Life At LSE - What's it like? Watch
Would I fit in as a mature student? Does LSE have a good SU/societies/clubs etc.? Do they hold Balls like other uni societies do? What's it like in halls? Are there a lot of international students due to it being a London uni and are they less likely to want to go out? Would you say it's a "party uni"?
Yes, loads and loads of balls, and very glamorous ones at that (bear in mind that a lot of the middle class, upper class, minor and major millionaires send their children to LSE).
Halls are catered, so you tend to meet a lot of people over dinner, so a decent community spirit.
Yes, large amount of internationals, I've been on nights out with some before and had a good time.
No, I wouldn't say it's a party uni. I also wouldn't say it needs to be a party uni for you to have party fun - you're in London and the possibilities are endless. I know people in their third year who are still going out 2/3 times a week, so that bodes well for you.
Yeah, LSE is the most international university in the world, with around 50% of the student body being international, I believe, and I find this makes for a very diverse and dynamic atmosphere.
