Student life

Societies

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|.

Thai Society

The LSESU Thai Society is the perfect place for you to start your year abroad with! We provide a forum for you to get to know other Thai students at LSE as well as at other universities in London and across the UK. We are also here to give you advice to help you settling in and adjusting yourself both to your social and academic life at LSE. Shortly speaking, we are here to make sure that you feel like home and enjoy the best of your experience at LSE and London! Moreover, we also commit to promoting a good understanding of Thai cultures, traditions, society and its people for those who are interested and want to get to know Thailand a bit more.

Muay Thai Club:

Muay Thai, or Thai boxing is often described as the ‘Art of Eight Limbs’ – punches, elbows, kicks and knees are all allowed. Muay Thai is steeped in history and traditions closely linked to Thailand’s own history. However more recently it has also been joined into MMA – Mixed Martial Arts. An integral part of Muay Thai is conditioning – shadow boxing, running, abdominal and body weight resistance exercises all help to seriously boost your fitness levels as well as your confidence.

The Archa Tong Club is named after an orphanage in the remote hill top region of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand. The abbot who has dedicated his life to the orphaned children was once a professional Thai boxer and the Muay Thai taught in the club comes directly from him. Every year the club holds sponsored ‘kickathon’ where we spend an evening kicking bags in order to raise money for the children of the orphanage.
