Very good, make sure to choose classes taught by LSE professors not visiting ones.

LSE offers an awesome program in Economics. You get to learn materials from top universities and also experience British culture while living in the City of London. I highly recommend this program.

A great way to take classes in a short time period. Dates are accessible, classes are interesting, and it is easy to get into the program. London kicks ass!

The program runs well for a study abroad experience at a university. There was a good orientation events and tours. There was a lot of free time to explore the city; it was generally very independent and hands-off. Library was great, some facilities like computers were limited. Oration was great.

I went to this program a few years ago and had a great experience. The classes run most of the day, and generally center around a project. Working in a group with people from many different countries was a little tough at times, but I feel that I benefited from the trip. Also, LSE gives you a lot of freedom. Many people went away on trips each weekend, which was great, but I would definitely recommend sticking around London. As everyone says: be prepared to spend a lot of money. A beer is going to run you about 5 pounds which can be $10, and that adds up fast. I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to spend a few weeks of the summer getting a credit and having a great time.
The London School of Economics and Political Science: The General Course not worth the money! average quality of teaching+p

London as a city has a lot to offer - true that. LSE within Europe has a pretty good reputation, so I decided to pursue a summer law course there. But I was so disappointed, overall. First, London is not a safe city. Beware. I lived in Islington at an LSE Hall (Middleton), and got mugged very stupidly right in front of the Hall. Not because I was obnoxious or loud but because I got followed by some guy who then yanked my entire purse from my hand. I somehow made it back to the Hall, and the staff was unfriendly and unhelpful, reluctant to issue me a new key, not caring whether I was in shock or whatever.
One of the professor teaching my course was excellent, but the other 2 were boring and poor, unengaging lecturers.
Party atmosphere was good, but London is very expensive, if you wanna go to a nice club and have a solid night out.
Overall, very disappointing. My undergraduate academic quality in the U.S. was significantly better. Invest that money into a better summer course, please.
