About Mick Jagger attending the London School of Economics…
*Click for MORE ROLLING STONES TRIVIA
College Mick Jagger entered at age 16 or 17 after his good grades at Dartford Grammar School won him a grant. Aiming to be a lawyer, a journalist, or a politician, Mick studied economics and political science and did not leave school until after the Stones signed their first contract with Decca Records. In 1962, during a physical education class, Mick accidentally bit off the tip of his tongue, which made him unable to speak for days, which also supposedly affected his singing ever since.
The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE or the LSE) is a public research university located in London, England, and a constituent college of the federal University of London. Founded in 1895 by Fabian Society members Sidney Webb, Beatrice Webb, Graham Wallas, and George Bernard Shaw, LSE joined the University of London in 1900 and established its first degree courses under the auspices of the university in 1901. LSE began awarding its degrees in its own name in 2008, prior to which it awarded degrees of the University of London.
LSE is located in the London Borough of Camden and Westminster, Central London, near the boundary between Covent Garden and Holborn. The area is historically known as Clare Market. LSE has more than 11,000 students, just under seventy percent of whom come from outside the UK, and 3,300 staff.
It had an income of £391.1 million in 2020/21, of which £32.8 million was from research grants. One hundred and fifty-five nationalities are represented amongst the LSE’s student body and the school had the second highest percentage of international students (70%) of the 800 institutions in the 2015–16 Times Higher Education World University Ranking. Despite its name, the school is organised into 25 academic departments and institutes which conduct teaching and research across a range of pure and applied social sciences.
