This global event series takes place each summer, with more than 90 events coordinated all over the world, organised by LSE alumni groups. They are designed to give overseas students who are about to start studying at the School an opportunity to meet each other, as well as connect with alumni and current students prior to arriving at LSE. It is a perfect opportunity for them to connect with the School before they arrive in London.
Destination LSE also offers country groups an excellent way to engage future alumni before they even join the School, and provides opportunities for more recent graduates to share their experience of studying at the School. The sessions are a great example of alumni contributing significantly to the future of LSE.
