Student Profiles

The AOI programme provides the opportunity to gain a deep knowledge of technical accounting and at the same time challenges the student to look beyond the pure technicalities of the subject. In addition, the programme offers the chance to combine the core accounting subjects with a wide range of other courses from non-accounting areas (e.g. finance, law, politics). Right after my master's I started a graduate scheme in financial management with General Electric (GE) Capital. The graduate scheme involves moving every 6 months to a different location, business and financial management related function. Hence, I am benefitting from the skills acquired and concepts learnt during my year at LSE.

My personal LSE experience also goes far beyond the pure academic knowledge. The most unique aspect of the LSE, were the people I shared my experience with. Never before had I met so many people from that many different countries with such exceptional backgrounds. It has been and will certainly remain one of the most memorable years of my life.

This programme provided a unique opportunity to enhance my competitive edge in the current global job market. The School has a distinguished reputation in social sciences and a cosmopolitan character. The AOI programme encourages students from diverse academic backgrounds to bring brand new perspectives to challenge the teaching and research of the School.

I really enjoyed the academic freedom at LSE. Students do not always need to agree with everything they are taught. In fact, the faculty expects students to take risks to challenge them. The AOI programme moves very fast. Some readings can be intimidating. The core paper is cross-disciplinary and taught from a social science perspective, students are invited to think outside the box in order to see a bigger picture.


The School recognises that the cost of living in London may be higher than in your home town or country, and we provide generous scholarships each year to home and overseas students.

LSE makes available over GBP 15 million annually in financial aid for its students. Around one quarter of our graduate students receive financial support from the School.

At master’s level, the value of support given by LSE ranges in value from 10 per cent of the tuition fee to a full fees and maintenance award.

This programme is eligible for needs-based awards from LSE, including the Graduate Support Scheme, Master's Awards, and Anniversary Scholarships.

Selection for any funding opportunity is based on receipt of an offer for a place and submitting a Graduate Financial Support application, before the funding deadline.

In addition to our needs-based awards, LSE also makes available scholarships for students from specific regions of the world and awards for students studying specific subject areas.
