Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) students may face multiple structural barriers on the way to academic success. LSESU is committed to serve all students, including the BME community. The University and Students Union provide a range of BME specific support.
Support at LSESU
The BME Officer, Anti-Racism Officer, International Officer, and the Sabbatical Officers at LSESU can help you whether you are facing discrimination, or have an idea on how to improve the BME student experience on campus. LSESU also operates the BME Mentoring Scheme, which connects LSE alumni and Black and ethnic minority current students, giving them the opportunity to share experiences and help shape their career.
