When I chose LSE to do my master's, the programme content suited perfectly what I was looking for for my professional development – allowing me to study psychology without having a previous degree in it. The mix of social and organisational psychology in my MSc is simply fascinating. It allows you to develop professionally either in the social space or working with organisations. In addition to that the comradeship of such a culturally diverse group of people makes the programme absolutely fantastic – getting to know people from other countries is a life changing experience. I also love having the freedom to adapt the programme to my personal needs by taking the options that I find most interesting, even from other departments; the speakers that come to talk about interesting topics; the quality of the research, and finally, the approach to social problems is so important, the social construction of change instead of an individualistic approach. LSE has helped me to develop in a number of ways: Firstly, learning about top class research; Secondly, I am now part of the team of researchers of the Incas Project, in which LSE is a participant. It allowed me to gain access to key contacts, and professional opportunities that otherwise could not have happened. LSE made that possible. Once I complete my MSc I will look for a job, and in the future I am planning to come back to LSE to pursue a PhD. I have plans for the future to become an independent consultant with all that I have learned at LSE.
Being in London and at LSE, was definitely was one of the best experiences of my life. Studying at LSE was a dream come true, more for my parents than me! I had met an alumnus from LSE during my undergraduate days and I remember being very impressed with her, her field of work and her academic background. It inspired me to take the same route.
Being an international student in London was a very enriching experience. Other than the fact that it has made me a lot more confident and independent, it also made me aware of cultural differences and taught me to not evaluate all with the same lens. The LSE brand name in itself is an impressive one. It is a great conversation starter when speaking with employers and it establishes you as a superior candidate instantly, giving you a clear edge over others.
