The LSE provides many with an array of opportunities to choose courses that will be intellectually challenging. It is great being able to be immersed in a real school with not just other students on the program, but students who will be receiving a degree.
The LSE is also right in the heart of central London, so you are right in the middle of the hustle and bustle (if you like that type of thing). All of London's attractions are a short walk away, and getting anywhere is incredibly easy with bus and tube stops all within less than 5 minutes.
Although it is a full year, the length of breaks also gives ample travel time, which is great for those who do not have time during the school year to do so.
