About us

The German Society is a student union society at the London School of Economics and Political Science. With currently over 500 members, the Society has become the largest German student society in the UK. With membership open to everyone, our reach now goes far beyond LSE. We are hosting a wide range of events, ranging from our weekly Stammtisch and other socials to lectures and discussions with the most distinguished individuals from German business, politics and culture.

We care.

We are committed to the idea of bringing a little bit of home over the channel and celebrate our culture, our similarities and our peculiarities with others. The German Society is great at bringing people together and has an aim of promoting a good time for all. Whatever it is you are after, you will find it at the German Society.

We Engage.

Whether you are an undergraduate or a graduate student, you will have the opportunity to put your ideas into practice and contribute to our success. We have a great team that is always open for your contribution. If you are interested just contact us – we elect new Executives early in the Michaelmas Term.
