Just turn up.

LSE LIFE hosts a number of drop-in sessions that cover both academic and personal support from a wide variety of our partners. 

There is no need to book or to make an appointment for these specialised drop-in sessions. Just come during the indicated times/days. The sessions are located in various areas in the LSE LIFE space, so check with the LSE LIFE reception to find where the session you’re looking for is taking place. 

Careers advice

Drop in and speak to Careers Consultants from LSE Careers about any aspect of your career. Maybe you have no idea what you want to do, want to discuss some options, check over your CV, or go over an application you’re about to send off. If you want some help before you come in to see us take a look at our interactive tool Career Builder.

Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 2 - 5pm. Please note that during October, these sessions should be booked in advance via CareerHub. From November, these sessions will be available for drop in.
