There was a great turnout at the Postgrad breakfast earlier this month, so in response to this demand I’m organising a series of postgrad breakfasts.
I’m pleased to announce the postgrad breakfast series for April, May and June - throughout the exam period. We will have four free breakfast socials all at 10am to 12pm, on the 6th floor of the Saw Swee Hock at the following dates:
- Monday 20th April
- Tuesday 12th May
- Tuesday 9th June
- Tuesday 30th June
See you then!

The UK government announced last week that as of 6th April, international students will be charged £150 to access the National Health Service, to be paid alongside visa fees.
As a Union we condemn the introduction of a surcharge on access to the National Health Service for both migrants and international students.
While the announcement notes that “the surcharge represents only 1% of the total cost of studying in the UK for a three year undergraduate course”, it fails to address the financial implications and already high cost of coming to the UK to study.
We believe that this will add further financial burden to students. We also believe it sends out a negative message to prospective and current international students that the UK is not a welcoming place.
We urge other Unions to join us in condemning this and also show solidarity for migrants who will be hit by this levy.

All students should now have received an email saying that the course-by-course exam timetable will be released on
Wednesday 1st April. While we are pleased that the issue was
resolved swiftly, it is unacceptable that this should happen, especially for a
second year in a row. Students are right to expect that LSE has better checks
in place to ensure exam timetables are published when promised. Other
universities are able to publish their exam timetables well in advance of LSE,
and we see no reason why LSE can’t publish all exam timetables, at the very
latest, by the end of Lent Term. The school must review its processes for next
year (especially with the changes to the academic year and possibility of Lent
Term exams) to ensure students are not inconvenienced by exam timetable delays
