London’s premier University opens its doors to Omani students for specialisations in undergraduate and master’s courses.
What do former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell, founding father and Prime Minister of Fiji Kamisese Mara, former Prime Minister of Nepal Sher Bahadur Deuba, and mastermind of the Indian constitution, B.R. Ambedkar, have in common?
Aside from a penchant for the sciences governing local and world politics and diplomacies, all of them can trace their roots back to one institution: the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE).
Perhaps it’s this deep-rooted tradition – that can be traced back to the university’s founding year in 1895 – and the principle of working towards the ‘betterment of society’ that has created cohorts of influential people that have changed the course of history among nations.
Now, you too can be a part of this heritage as academically capable students from Oman are called upon for a chance to enroll in their programmes.
And with over 42 undergraduate degrees, 140 master’s, and PhD programmes across 25 different departments offered, LSE raises the stakes to become one of the world’s leading universities – and their academic profile spans across a range of disciplines – from accounting, economics, law and management, to anthropology, development, gender studies, and urbanisation.
As a part of their recruitment drive and awareness campaign, the university’s Student Marketing and Recruitment team will also be stationed at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre (OCEC) on October 14, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., where they will present a portfolio of the university, which will be followed by a Q & A session.

James Brown, LSE’s Student Recruitment Officer, who will be present on the day of the event, says: “The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is the world’s leading dedicated social science institution.
“The school enjoys a global reputation for academic excellence and cutting-edge research, which is exemplified by the most recent Research Excellence Framework results, ranking LSE with the highest percentage of world-leading research of any university in the UK.”
Speaking about LSE’s global student acceptance rate, he says, “LSE enjoys a global reputation for academic excellence. Around 67 per cent of LSE’s students, and more than 40 per cent of its academic staff, originate from outside the UK.”
That said, the UK has quickly chalked up to become the go-to destination for higher education, with over 500,000 international students enrolling across universities every year.
James adds: “These UK universities have also been placed among the best in the world, and consistently perform well in world rankings. They also have a reputation for world-class research.
“UK higher education degrees and qualifications are recognised by employers and academics worldwide. And, students get the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge, critical thinking, and connections to drive their careers forward.
Meanwhile, students interested to stay in the UK post-studies can also make use of their visa to look for a job in their field of expertise.
James explains: “The introduction of the two-year post-study work visa allows students who have completed their studies to remain in the UK for up to two years to apply or look for work, in any career or position of their choice.”
More details will be presented on the event day itself; however, pre-registration is required. Interested students can do so by heading to bit.ly/2nw9OaW.
