Jointly with LSE Careers, the IO administers the Tata Social Internship which offers LSE students the opportunity to undertake an 8 week project with the Tata Group in India. These projects have either a development, social enterprise, environmental, sustainable or CSR focus and involve a significant research element.


The Thailand Government Scholarship scheme is a partnership between the Royal Thai Embassy in London and the ARC, giving students the opportunity to visit Thailand for up to two months to conduct any project of their interest on Thailand as part of their study programme at LSE. The Scholarship aims to promote better understanding and knowledge of Thailand.




The ARC supports Asia-related student societies. These include the China Development Society, the India Society and the Pakistan Society. There are many national and cultural societies focused on specific aspects of Asia. These and more are available from the LSE Students' Union.




The ARC has organised India Careers Events at LSE in collaboration with LSE Careers. These events provide an opportunity for students to interact with global Indian companies and international companies with Indian interests.
