Wilter - 2019

The summer school in LSE is actually my second short term exchange (both of which were for credit). In fact I started planning this exchange a couple weeks after returning from the previous one with two or three main motivating reasons in mind. 

One, like many other students, I’m increasingly aware of the ability of these short exchanges to develop employability (more on this in another question). 

Then, I doubt it will be surprising to you to say how valuable the connections are you make with people overseas both in terms of friendship and possible future collaboration.

Benedict - 2019

I decided to complete a short-term experience to take the load off of a semester where I was originally required to overload. My fifth course, ECON2060, was available for credit at LSE summer school and so I decided to apply. I had also heard about the quality of the teaching there from students who did the school last year, so I was always interested in the opportunity.

Claudia - 2018

The standard of teaching was very high, yet the exams were manageable, leaving plenty of time for exploring London.  My favourite aspect of studying overseas was studying with a diverse range of people from all over the world, whilst the location of the university in central London made for easy exploring and allowed me to be apart of the bustling London lifestyle.

Sruthi - 2018

I would highly recommend this program for anyone who can't manage to fit in a whole semester exchange. It is a reasonably relaxed application process with plenty of help available at all stages making ending up at LSE a breeze. I am so glad I went and will tell everyone they should do the same.

Jenny - 2018

The experience was enlightening with respect to the scale and speed of London as a city. It showed me that time management is essential, but one can accomplish so much in a day. It has helped me become more comfortable in social settings.

Luke - 2018

I gained a lot of friendships from people of many backgrounds and cultures. I learnt how diverse people were and what their upbringings were in comparison to mine. Academically, I experienced what differentiated a university like UQ from LSE and overall I learnt quite a bit academically, from the experience.
