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.
