Student life


The Students' Union represents LSE students and aims to ensure that your time at the School is not just about studying but is also as enjoyable as possible. The Union organises entertainment and funds over 150 student societies covering a wide range of interests. These societies add a huge amount to students’ experience of LSE and of London. The variety of societies and activities change with the interests and initiative of each new group of students; an A-Z listing of the current student societies can be found on the Students' Union website.

Pakistan Society

Pakistan Society celebrates the Pakistani way of life and traditions in a culturally diverse student body at the LSE. Of course, you don’t have to be a Pakistani to join! With a member base of over 250, we arrange exciting events all year round such as Eid dinners, the year-end boat party, cultural exhibitions and public lectures.

Student Profile:

Komal Anwar

Komal Anwar - Karachi, Pakistan

2nd Year, LLB in Laws

There are a number of things I like about my programme but the practical approach to studying Law is something I particularly admire. The moot court at LSE and the various mooting competitions that are held throughout the year make it possible for students to understand the subject even better.

There are innumerable societies at LSE and I have enjoyed being a member of the Pakistan, Arabic, Badminton and Aerobics societies. Prior to coming to London I was a shy student and I never thought I would ever be able to stand for any elections but LSE gave me confidence and made it possible for me to become the International Officer of my hall of residence (Bankside).

LSE has been a treasure box for me full of opportunities that have helped me become a much better person than I was. After I graduate I plan to do my Legal Practice Course (LPC) and hope to eventually join a corporate law firm in London.
