The London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE)
in University news
The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is among the many universities which regularly keep us busy with thesis and dissertation printing and binding here at The Document Centre. So, we thought we'd find out a little more about them and share our findings with you.
Founded in 1895, the LSE has been around for 120 years and today is one of the world's top social science universities. Course subjects span anything from economics, accounting and finance to politics, law, sociology and anthropology. There are 30 or so academic departments or institutes covering both undergraduate (MSc) and postgraduate (MPhil & PhD) courses. The university's HQ and main entrance is just off Aldwych, located in Houghton Street in London's WC2 region.
The LSE has been voted London's top university three years in succession and also regularly features high in both National and International university league tables, regularly sitting beside the likes of Harvard, Berkeley and Stanford universities in the rankings. It also came out as the very top UK university for social science in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework ('REF').
The university's intake comes from no less than 140 countries and a significant 46% of staff originate from outside the UK. No less than 16 Nobel prize winners have been among the LSE's staff or alumni. Indeed, one of the university's founders is one of them – George Bernard Shaw, who won the Nobel Prize for literature back in 1925. It's also remarkable that over 30 current members of the House of Commons and over 40 current members of the House of Lords either studied or taught at the LSE. Such well-known names as Ed Miliband, Virginia Bottomley, Yvette Cooper, Edwina Currie, Frank Dobson and Margaret Hodge feature among the list of political alumni of LSE. 34 world leaders, past or present, also studied or taught at the university. One particularly notable alumnus was U.S. president John F Kennedy who enrolled at the university in 1935. Meanwhile, household alumni from the business sector include George Soros, Maurice Saatchi, David Rockefeller, EasyJet founder Stelios Haji-loannou and AirAsia's founder Tony Fernandes. The LSE also has a reputation for extremely prestigious public events programmes and it is at such events that speakers like Nelson Mandela, Bill Clinton, Angela Merkel, Aung San Suu Kyi, David Cameron and the Dalai Lama have spoken.
Thesis binding for the LSE
Recent thesis and dissertation binding for LSE students has included soft binding and wiro binding for PhD students, hard binding with silver foiled lettering or wiro binding for MSc students and soft binding for M.Phil students. Some students ordered additional extras including CD burning and pockets to house them inside the back cover. Most students from the LSE used the Same Day turnaround option. The Document Centre, based in London's SE1, is just ten minutes from London Bridge and provides thesis and dissertation printing and binding, commercial printing for businesses and organisations and bespoke bookbinding and book repair.
