LSE is an international community, with over 140 nationalities represented amongst its student body in 2017. We celebrate this diversity through everything we do.
Student societies and activities
Your time at LSE is not just about studying, there are plenty of ways to get involved in extracurricular activities. From joining one of over 200 societies, or starting your own society, to volunteering for a local charity, or attending a public lecture by a world-leading figure, there is a lot to choose from.
LSE is based on one campus in the centre of London. Despite the busy feel of the surrounding area, many of the streets around campus are pedestrianised, meaning the campus feels like a real community.

Anglo Dutch Society
The Anglo-Dutch Society aims to strengthen the ties that bind the people of our respective nations. The society also aims to bring together students residing in the UK that are interested in the Netherlands and Dutch culture.

Our aim is to promote the social, artistic, commercial, educational, scientific and other interests that the Dutch and the British have in common.

Furthermore, we aim to strengthen the bond of Dutch LSE students. The celebration of Dutch national holidays, such as Sinterklaas and Koningsdag, in order to support previous stated aims.
