Research is being increasingly recognised as a fantastic way to support undergraduate learning. LSE 2030 is committing to “embed enquiry-based learning and research practice at every level”.
LSE has always enabled students to learn from top researchers, but also brings research into teaching in other ways: teaching students about research methods, or enabling students to conduct research of their own. In A Connected Curriculum, LSE Pro-Director (Education) Dilly Fung has articulated the many ways students can learn through research and enquiry, and to connect with research and researchers.
Undergraduates at LSE want opportunities to get involved in research. The student pages on this site have materials including: extra-curricular research projects; internships and assistantships; student publications; dissemination routes and considerations. Please share these pages with your academic mentees and any other interested students.
