Overall Experience
Matured, became more culturally aware, learned how to balance work and play. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile. I feel that I learned a lot academically and non-academically and a lot about a different part of the world I was not too familiar with such as Europe, Asia, and Africa. While living in the heart of London it often felt that I was living in the heart of the world. When living in America I can feel t... - Clark University View Entire Review

I learned about numerous european cultures from traveling. I spend a month traveling around Europe with friends, staying in hostels, and meeting locals. It's just wonderful to study in Europe, because everything is a train ride away. Also airlines like Ryanair and Easyjet make it cheap and quick to get to further destinations.

Independence, international exposure, city living. - Wellesley College View Entire Review
Past Review
Yes. I have learned a lot about myself and about others through this program. It's very rare that one gets the opportunity to study with some of the best minds in the world. It's stressful, but in the end you can proudly declare that you once attended the LSE. Not many can say that. - Clark University View Entire Review

Yes definitely. Although the quality of education was lackluster and much better at my home institution, everything else i gained from the experience made it worthwhile. I had the best year of my life being in London. - Wellesley College View Entire Review

Past Review
Yes, it was very worthwhile. I gained a better understanding of myself and how to live on my own, and how to adjust to new places. I hope to move back to London someday, and I now feel well-equipped to do so because I know the city pretty well. In studying abroad, I wanted to test myself to live in a foreign country for a year, ... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
I think coming to London was a great experience! But i feel that i could have just stayed at OSU and taken the same class for cheaper and probably learned more. - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater View Entire Review

Past Review
It was intellectually enriching, but the personal growth is what was most valuable to me. It made me more independent, better able to handle myself in adverse situations, and even gave me a better ability to handle money. LSE in particular exposed me to a diverse student body and a different manner of education. - Tulane University View Entire Review
