What, why, where & who.

What we do

LSE LIFE is a place where you can come to learn more about yourself, your studies and your goals. We offer a plethora of workshops and other unique events where you can learn more about the skills and personal interests you choose to explore. We offer one-to-one sessions to help you discover your strengths, develop yours skills and bring them together to reach your goals.

The LSE LIFE team of study advisers, together with advisers and specialists from the Library, the Language Centre, Careers, and others can offer you:

  • Hands-on, practical workshops on key areas of postgraduate work, including effective reading and note-making, academic writing, critical thinking, finding and referencing academic sources, managing your dissertation research, and organising your time, among others;
  • Personalised one-to-one advice from study advisers, English-language teachers, librarians, careers advisers, and other specialists;
  • Special events to take advantage of what LSE and London have to offer and to prepare for life after LSE;
  • A bright, open, welcoming space on the ground floor of the library where you can meet and work together with students from other courses and departments.


The educational experiences of LSE’s undergraduate and taught master’s students lie at the heart of the LSE Education Strategy 2015-2020. Specifically, the Strategy includes aspirations that LSE graduates be critical, analytically sophisticated and globally employable; that students be provided with opportunities to develop skills that will prepare them, academically, personally and professionally, for life at LSE and beyond; and that students and staff together benefit from the School’s vibrant intellectual culture.

We, at LSE LIFE, play a part in by offering a space where students can come to learn more about themselves, and develop key areas that they are interested in – be it skills to help with their studies, with their future plans, or with the personal interests.  We aim to build a community where all students are welcome to come and join us in whatever capacity suits them best.
