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.



The thing I love most about LSE LIFE is the contribution we can make to one’s student experience by connecting the academic life to one’s hobbies, well-being and interpersonal skills. LSE LIFE is the place where dialogues of all kinds can take place, where you learn how to learn and explore with us what the vibrant city of London has to offer.

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 about LSE LIFE is how its sole aim is to help students, whether that’s building confidence with public speaking, getting some help with a written essay or helping them see more of London itself. It’s really great to see students finding their feet and making the most of their time at LSE.



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. 



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 about LSE LIFE one-to-one is that it is a co-creating communication process, between the adviser and the student. It is dynamic and interactive, magical and fun! I have enjoyed these conversations very much and have learnt a lot from my students! I look forward to speaking with you, academic-wise and/or life-wise, at any point of your study.



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 a space for students to be listened to without judgement and receive tailored support! What I love is working together to find creative solutions and tangible strategies to any challenges they may face. From improving essay writing skills and finding ways to manage time effectively to making the overall studying experience more enjoyable and less stressful, LSE LIFE is the place to come to overcome any concerns!

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.




I think LSE LIFE is all about learning and developing, and that goes for staff as much as students. I love that I can work with students from a whole range of different disciplines and I can learn from their ideas just like they can learn from mine.

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.
