The Quad - LSE

The Quad

Having visited Manchester it's hard to think of a bigger contrast. Manchester takes on nearly twice as many undergraduates each year than the LSE has across all UG courses at the moment - they've got around 4,000 with a further 5,000 graduate students.

For those who don't know where it is the LSE is in Holborn, Central London. It rubs shoulders with the Royal Courts of Justice and the BBC and is a stone's throw from Theatreland - one of the halls of residence is on the corner of Drury Lane and High Holborn. The photo shows "The Quad" which is an indoor area used as a concert venue and nightclub but I've stayed in larger bedrooms - that really sums up the LSE (phsyically) in that it's tiny. But it certainly punches well above its weight when it comes to reputation and it was claimed that the average starting salary for an LSE graduate is £26k - I don't suppose they are all working in McDonalds!.
