There is a place for everyone on the LSE German Society committee, whether you are a Bachelor, Master or Phd Student.
Not only will you meet great people, but also engage with stimulating material throughout the year. Amongst others, you will help organise the German Symposium, the Oktoberfest and other events and endeavours.
THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
The Executive Committee is elected, prior to the start of the academic year. Positions are typically taken up by students that have had experience with running the LSE German Society. The Executive Committee works throughout the summer to structure the society for the incoming academic year and to ensure that matters run smoothly, come September.
