Food for thought…


An alumni writes in the LSE student magazine:
“I had been hoping to join a university full of wisdom-seeking, critically debating, challenging and passionate students and teachers.  Instead, I became part of a university full of anxious students who feel unhappy working harder than is healthy to ramp up their CVs in a competitive environment […]
[LSE] like so many other universities in the UK, runs not like a public institution but like a business that markets degrees.  […]
The 8 hours a week of contact time that we did have were often spent having meaningless discussions in which everyone was trying to make up what could be written in the readings they pretended to have read”
