Academic Clans

Here you can find all information about the School of Economic's Academic Clans! This is a student led initiative in which groups of second and third year students take a lead on supporting a group of new first year students.

We want to create a sense of belonging for all students at the School of Economics, which is why starting this academic year 2020/21, all new first year students will have the opportunity to join our Academic Clans intiative. 

Groups of two or three second and third year students will act as Clan leaders to newly formed Clans in our first year cohort, and take the lead on providing support and organising Clan activites. 

Over time, this will develop a network of support in all year groups across different "generations" of Clans. 

In a new socially-distance world, now more than ever we think students need the strength of their community to combat feelings of isolation. This year we especially want to create a welcoming and supportive environment for our new first year students. 


This crisis has taught us all that we are stronger together, that we need to look out for each other, that even in extreme circumstance it’s the simple human connection that really matters.
