The following Coffee Mornings are focused on our female students:

  2. Women in Consultancy and Professional Services Coffee Morning

Widening Participation

LSE is enriched by a diverse student body. As a specialist social science institution and a leading global university we want to ensure that the widest range of perspectives and experiences are present in our classrooms. Our Widening Participation team work with London state schools, colleges and sixth forms to raise aspirations and awareness, support attainment and instil confidence to progress to higher education.

Throughout the year we organise a range of events to connect employers with our LSE widening participation students and pre-entry students from state schools, college and sixth forms.
