Personal recommendation
If you want lots of independence, travel opportunity and a city exploding with things to do this is it. If you want anything cheaply, a University that holds your hand, dynamic classroom experiences, and an accessable student body this is not your place.

Personal recommendation
The LSE is the LSE. It has a global reputation for excellence in the social sciences. You'll have access to excellent resources, including a outstanding (though rather ugly) library and world-class professors. Depending upon your degree level (i.e. undergrad or grad), you'll have more access to those resources than other people. Generally, you have to be assertive and seek out help from professors and teachers - they will rarely come to you, but they're generally very responsive to students who take the initiative to speak with them first. LSE students are a very cosmopolitan bunch - it was recently rated the most international school in the world (THES), and you can see that by just walking down Houghton Street at any given day in the week. Because it's so cosmopolitan, students have a wealth of interests and views and this is most represented by the myriad student clubs on campus. Many of them are fantastic, and organize events with world leaders, big-name academics, and businessmen. If you're receiving a degree from the LSE, and especially if you do really well in that degree, you'll be highly employable. Investment banks and consulting firms in particular are extremely aggressive in recruiting LSE students. This past year one of the big banks had a laser show on Houghton Street to advertise their graduate schemes. I attended a recruitment event at Goldman Sachs, and apparently LSE is tied with another school as the most represented institution in Europe. LSE students do of course go on to work in think tanks, intenational organizations, et al - but a good portion of them do go into the financial sector.

A very interesting experience. You meet people from all over Europe (and even more), but very few british people. LSE is also a major reference in Economics, and it's and great name on your CV !!

ABOUT
The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is unique in the United Kingdom in its concentration on teaching and research across the full range of the social, political and economic sciences. Founded in 1895 by Beatrice and Sidney Webb, the LSE is one of the largest colleges within the University of London and has an outstanding reputation for academic excellence nationally and internationally.
But this is an unusual UK university. Few university institutions in the world are as international. The study of social, economic and political problems covers not only the United Kingdom and other countries within the European Union, but also countries of every continent.
