Student events

We run a great range of student events for you to explore IR outside of the classroom, and to enhance our community:




Careers events

There are a wide range of careers events planned for you. The Department works closely with LSE Careers to give you opportunities to explore your professional development.

Spheres of Influence

Held throughout the Michaelmas and Lent terms, these are careers oriented seminars for 2nd/3rd year undergraduate and masters students. A professional working in the field of IR will briefly present their career or specialism, before opening the floor to a more informal discussion about where your IR degree can take you.

Wednesday Night Live!

These very informal evening sessions put the spotlight on a topical news item, which you explore from an IR perspective, with pizza. Conversational and casual, Wednesday Night Live! is a brilliant way to put your knowledge of IR into practice!

Hosted by Professor Fawaz Gerges, these sessions are open to all students and faculty in the Department of International Relations. We'll send registered participants a choice of discussion topics on the day of the session and you vote to decide which to discuss.

Food for Thought

This is your opportunity to share a two-course lunch in the Senior Dining Room with a member of the IR faculty. These small lunches are limited to just ten attendees, meaning you have the opportunity to discuss the academic’s research interests in much greater detail than you otherwise might. These lunches are open to both BSc and MSc students.
