LSE LIFE Projects

We like trying new things.


LIFE in London

What do you think about when you think about London? Is it Samuel Johnson saying “who’s tired of London is tired of life”, or Joe Strummer singing “London calling at the top of the dial/ And after all this, won't you give me a smile”, or do you picture yourself as Hugh Grant on one of his walkabouts in About a Boy?

Where is your favourite spot? A cosy bookshop in Soho? Fabric on a Friday night? Or maybe Tate Modern’s new terrace?

Regardless of what your answer to the questions above might be, LIFE in London is a series of workshops, events and talks designed to inspire you to make the most of your experience in this unique city.

Work It Out

Our work environment is transforming in exciting yet challenging ways and with the future being shaped by technological innovations and new job roles being created every day, it’s uncertain as to what the future workforce might look like.

One thing, however, will remain the same: the pursuit of purpose. Do you want a career that’s fulfilling?

If the answer is yes, Work it out is for you! LSE Careers and LSE LIFE have come up with an exciting series of events that will allow you to explore the concept of meaningful work. Through these events you will gain a clearer idea of what your key priorities and values are for your future career choices.
