LSE Academic Resources

LSE Academic Resources for Students

Posted on November 29, 2019 by Kritika Gadhvi  | Academics | Blog

The London School of Economics and Political Science is one of the world’s leading institutions in economics, management, finance and social sciences. When someone talks about LSE, arguably the most prominent thought that comes to the surface is the world-class, cutting-edge curriculum that the institution offers its students. The programmes and modules are designed in a way that demands students to think critically and emerge as problem-solvers able enough to face the real-world challenges, rather than rote-learners with no command over pragmatic skills.

Even though an LSE curriculum is tenuous and asks a huge amount of dedication and determination from the students, being a part of the brilliant ecosystem that reaps one benefits throughout life in both personal and professional arenas.

Since the academic environment is highly rigorous and advanced, LSE, as a leading institution, realises that for students to become successful in the completion of their courses, they require fair amount of assistance. To that purpose, the school has built a repository of resources that can be availed by the current students to be more informed and capable while pursuing a programme at LSE.

This article talks about two of the most important such resources at students’ disposal that they can tap into.

The British Library of Political and Economic Sciences, or more commonly known as the LSE Library, is the largest library devoted to social sciences. It has all imaginable resources, including books, journals, newspapers, maps, official publications, pamphlets and microforms. The LSE library also has an online portal where once can access all the aforementioned material at the click of a button. Additionally, the library hosts databases for subject-wise journal articles, papers and dissertations from around the world along with data & statistics for various research purposes, historical resources, training and development support and past LSE exam papers.

Being a member institution of the University of London and delivering its programme, LSE students also have access to LSE Moodle, the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) where students can access the materials related to courses they have undertaken as a part of their year/s at LSE. VLE offers access to entire modules that will be taught in each week for every course along with the list of topics that will be covered during each week and a list of suggested readings so that the students are prepared in advance when they get to classes. All suggested and additional readings, which are usually excerpts or chapters from books and are a compiled list of study material that is of utmost importance during the course of one's study, are available on LSE Moodle.

Apart from the academic resources, the Moodle also offers other services like scheduling meetings with professors/dissertation supervisors and information on classroom activities that take place online. The students can discuss classroom teachings, assignments and activities with their peers, an exchange exercise that encourages them to engage in meaningful discussions and gather a wider opinion on topics, theories and concepts. Peer-to-peer learning is a highly valued concept at LSE and the VLE is a prominent way to channelise it.

The application-oriented teaching-learning pedagogy at LSE pushes students to learn by doing and emphasises on self-study using the ample resources the school offers. This enables students to develop increased focus and come back to the professors for any doubts. This practice is not only implemented at LSE but also at its teaching institutions around the world.

For instance, at ISBF, that offers all undergraduate and postgraduate programme under the academic direction of The London School of Economics, the curriculum and pedagogy are heavily influenced by LSE’s motto and values, making it one of the most sought-after institutions that offer a world-class curriculum at a fraction of the cost!
