We have more than 250 sports clubs and societies bringing LSE students together – from faith, cultural and academic societies, to fundraising groups and student media - there’s bound to be something for everyone.


A first for LSE, our society unifies all Balkan students based on their shared cultures and history, while also offering a key platform for political debate, career and networking opportunities.

About us:

As one of LSE's premier cultural societies, we are a national example in offering an all-Balkan university community. The Balkans are a geographically large and culturally rich part of Europe compromising 11 nations and some 60 million people, who speak multiple languages yet have remarkably linked histories and cultures. They include: Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria, Romania and Greece. For the first time at LSE, students from this entire region will be represented through Balkan Society. Not only do we offer a wide range of fun LSE and inter-university social events, but also a political platform for students from the region in a unified environment. On top of this, we offer an abundance of career and networking opportunities.



Over the course of the coming year, you can expect the following:

  • Cultural events including club nights with other LSESU Socities and other London Universities
  • Socials: Boat parties, dinners, balls and formal visits to select locations 
  • Panel debates on historical and current questions, with the chance to represent your country in a political nature
  • Exciting guest speaker events with Balkan related figures in the field of government, business and finance 
  • Countless Career and Networking oppurtunities including presitigous guest speakers



Purchasing a membership will give you access to all of our events, and will ensure that priced events are offered at a lower cost for members. It will also allow you to join our online groups where you can gain opportunities from networking with other members. Buying an associate membership allows staff and LSE alumni to join.
