The LSE Alumni Association of Singapore (LSEAAS) was founded by enthusiastic alumni to bring the spirit of the School’s motto of deepening our knowledge of the cause of things – Rerum Cognoscere Causas – to Singapore, many thousand miles away from Houghton Street. It provides various platforms for alumni and friends of the LSE to learn, network and re-live fond memories of their time studying in London.
In September 1973, the LSEAAS was formally registered as a society with the Registry of Societies (0169/1973) in Singapore.
Current and past luminaries closely associated with the LSE include Professor You Poh Seng, former Deputy Prime Ministers Dr. Goh Keng Swee and Tharman Shanmugaratnam and Professor Saw Swee Hock.
The LSEAAS today consists of over 3,000 alumni with a 60% / 40% split between undergraduate and postgraduate alumni across over 30 programmes of study at the LSE, with our first alumni having graduated from the LSE back in the 1940s.
The LSEAAS continues a proud tradition of facilitating and organising events as a means to maintain our links with the School and fellow alumni here in Singapore. The LSEAAS is also the platform from which The Singapore LSE Trust was launched as an independent initiative in 2004.
Looking ahead, the LSEAAS is committed to creating meaningful links between alumni on one hand, as well as with other LSE and leading Alumni Associations in Singapore and the Southeast Asia region. Please check our website and social media platforms for upcoming events.
The LSEAAS organizes a variety of events. Similar to student life at the LSE, it offers a combination of serious academic study and interest in society – with conviviality and lots of fun! The event calendar includes a monthly “Wine and Dine Wednesdays” where we set aside the final Wednesday of the month for our alumni and friends to meet up over food and drinks, as well as events, talks or seminars about current topics by LSE scholars or illustrious alumni and community outreach events.
