About us

The PPE society is vibrant community of everyone studying or interested in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at LSE. We aim to build a tight-knit network of PPE students in LSE and across London, using our close ties with our counterparts at UCL and KCL.

We’re all about top quality speakers and banging socials, and because of this we excel at bringing together the interesting and the interested. With our glittering speaker line up for this term, as well as our PPE alumni series, we hope to be a real source of inspiration for our membership.

We’re at once cosy and friendly, but also outgoing and influential in LSE and London.

Our events are Informal and chilled, but with room for serious discussion with academic weight.

LSE PPE is one of the university's newest degrees, with the first cohort commencing in 2015. Despite this, we are already well established with many members from accross all disciplines!

We’re an ambitious society with so much to offer you this year, so get on our socials and our SU page, and hopefully we’ll see you at our first event!

Don't forget to join the 2023/24 Freshers PPE WhatsApp Group!
