Hello! I haven't found a 2020 Graduate thread, so I thought it will be nice to start one.

Ice breaker information to get the ball rolling:

- Current University:

- Prospective Course:
- Prospective College:
- Fun fact/extracurricular activities:


I am applying to the MSc in Economics. Anyone else applying for the same course?

Good luck everyone!

Hi! Even I was looking for an official LSE postgrad thread for 2020 entry.
Current University: Top 5 uni of my country.
- Achieved (Expected) Grade: 75% aggregate (don't know if this qualifies as a first)
- Prospective Course: Msc Economics
- Prospective College: LSE, UCL, Warwick
- Fun fact/extracurricular activities: Quite a few including leadership roles.

Would really like some insight on other colleges I should apply to within the UK for Economics.

- Current University: top law school in Chile (Universidad Calólica de Chile-already graduated)
- Achieved Grade: equivalent of a high 2:1
- Prospective Course: Masters in Public Policy (MPP) or Masters in Public Administration (MPA)
- Prospective College: LSE


My main reason for posting is that I'm working on my LSE application but am not sure whether to apply to the MPP or MPA, besides being different lengths, I don't really know how they are different. Anyone in the same boat or than can offer advice?

Hola, I had applied for the two years MPA and was offered a place this year, however, I changed to the MSc Public Policy and Administration just for one year. MPA and MPP are very similar. The only reason the other one takes two years Is because of the capstone that is for 6 months and also the interdisciplinary aspect

Could someone please explain the % grading system you use? If you get A in every course, is that 100%?

In the UK, 70% is a first class, which is the highest grade boundary.

This often equates to around 90% / A in other countries grading systems, although it can vary a lot.

Which country are you from?

I'm confused by this hehe. I'm from Norway, our grading is from A=5 to F=1(fail). We just calculate the average of all grades received (the gpa). Mine is around 4.5

- Current University: Glasgow University (graduated 2017)- Achieved (Expected) Grade: 1st - Prospective Course: International Development and Humanitarian EmergenciesSecond choice - Health and International Development- Prospective College: LSE- Fun fact/extracurricular activities: Been working at various NGOs for the past two years but I am keen to get back to uni and supplement my knowledge!Would be great to know from other people who have had a few years work experience after graduating (in relevant field to the course you are applying to) how you structured your CV? How did you balance the professional experience and academic stuff from your undergrad? I'm completely in the mindset of a professional CV for jobs so would be great to hear from others on what they included in their grad school CVs!

Is anyone else also applying for History of International Relations? I’m expecting a 2.1. I’m not too sure if I will get in because everyone else here achieves a 1st but I’m still going to give it a go.
