Student video diaries

The LSE experience from our students' point of view 

Follow new students' journeys from Welcome Week to summer exams, as they settle in to LSE life, explore London... and sometimes write an essay too!

Meet Alex and Yea Won, our undergraduate video diarists

Alex, UK

Hi! I'm Alex and I'm studying BSc International Relations and History. I've come to LSE via Bristol, Australia and California and I'm looking forward to spending time in London. Outside of the 'academic bubble' you'd probably find me relaxing in the park or pub with friends, but I am also partial to the arts - especially concerts and comedy nights! Watch all of Alex's videos >>


Yea Won, South Korea

Hi there, I am Yea Won and I am a first year undergraduate studying Economics. It's my first time here in London and I'm really excited to be sharing a part of my life here with you. Keep watching my videos for more about me and my life at LSE! Watch all of Yea Won's videos >>

Meet Zack, our General Course (study abroad) video diarist

Zack, USA

I'm a third-year undergrad student majoring in Economics at the University of Georgia (UGA), spending a year abroad at LSE on the General Course. Having never been to England before, I'm incredibly excited for this opportunity to live in a big city for the first time and explore around the UK and Europe. Watch all of Zack's videos >>
