First thing I love about LSE LIFE is when students, who come to our 1-2-1s full of uncertainties, leave with a huge smile and full of confidence! Second thing I adore about my meetings is mutual learning: I learn loads after every single appointment.

What I like about LSE LIFE is that no two days are the same – with so many events happening and so many students coming from around the university, I arrive in the morning and cannot predict the work that will come up throughout the day.

I like the way LSE LIFE makes it easier for our students to learn. And I love the creativity and the enthusiasm of the LSE LIFE team, the informal conversations that take place at the reception desk and meeting great students from all over the planet. 



I really enjoy the fact that no two days are ever the same and getting to know the students who use the space. It’s a real privilege to see someone progress through their time at LSE.



What I like the most about LSE LIFE is that I get to interact with students both on and off campus and that we prove that “Learning Is For Everyone” (which coincidentally spells LIFE!)



My favourite thing? The vast range of things I discover when I talk with students about their ideas for essays and research — I often go look something up after a meeting to learn more about it! It’s a privilege to exchange ideas and learn from students across so many disciplines. 



I like knowing that we are each doing our bit to ease the stress felt by students. Whether it is a lollipop or a one-to-one, you can often visibly see students leave happier than when they entered, which is a truly rewarding part of the job. 



I enjoy engaging with students from across all of the departments at LSE in my one-to-one appointments. I particularly enjoying supporting students to think critically about their subject area through the development of a strong academic skillset.



Our workshops are a unique opportunity for students from the diverse range of disciplines we have at LSE to meet each other, share their concerns, and collaborate. It is a pleasure to see new friendships and connections forming in these workshops.




What I like most about LSE LIFE is having the opportunity to meet and interact with students where I can act as a sounding board helping to develop creative strategies to enhance their learning, and really make the most of their time at LSE.



Being a student myself, I can understand the ups and downs, and happiness and struggles in studies; as well as other issues in life, that may come up while studying. LSE LIFE provides an inclusive and friendly space, to explore with students their concerns and issues, in a down to earth and caring manner.



LSE LIFE provides valuable resources for LSE students, and not just for writing and revising. It is a place where students can cultivate a better sense of how they fit into the school and its academic culture. It is an antidote to academic isolation. 



What I really like about LSE LIFE is the services that we provide around the School - seeing our Workspaces full of students every day, seeing students attending our workshops and having one-to-one sessions with our Study Advisers all make me very proud of working in LSE LIFE.



LSE LIFE is one of my favorite places on the LSE’s campus. The space is cozy, bright, and welcoming, and the team is dynamic, energetic, and supportive. This positive environment fosters creative and critical thinking at a higher level in order to truly ‘understand the causes of things.’

I enjoy supporting students through their LSE journey. Talking to students about their academic and personal development enables me to motivate and encourage students to keep going, and watch them excel through discussions, laughter and teamwork.

What I like about LSE LIFE is that it is always a lively and living space: the name says it all!  For me, LSE LIFE is a place to learn, think and debate… to exchange, connect and collaborate ... and to play, dream and create… 



LSE LIFE is a great place because we want to build respectful, mutual learning relationships with students. And this allows us to uniquely experiment with different forms and ideas of learning where everybody participates in the learning process.



It’s a fantastic place to meet people from many different countries and backgrounds, and to help them develop during their academic journey. There’s also something new happening every day.
