Grimshaw Student delegations to Iran (2016, left), Serbia (2016, middle) and Jordan (2015, right).
The Grimshaw Club is one of the few LSE societies to organise student study trips each year to countries of particular political interest. Grimshaw student delegations not only provide experiences of different cultures around the world, but are also unique learning opportunities with the potential to meet politicians, government officials, diplomats, civil society actors, academics, journalists and alumni for discussions relating to the trip’s thematic focus.
In recent years destinations have included, among many others: Jordan, Myanmar, Pakistan, Singapore, Rwanda, Georgia, Iran, Geneva, Israel/Palestine, Belarus, Colombia, Russia, Bosnia, North Korea, and Ukraine.
All Grimshaw members can apply for a place on any of the student trips (it is not too late to buy Grimshaw membership).
The trips are held during the holidays with the destinations and itineraries chosen by members to who put forth trip proposals to the Grimshaw committee’s elected Trips Officer.
