أهلاً و سهلاً and Welcome to UCL Arab & North African Society, 

We are (arguably) the best society on campus and we'd like to invite you to join us this year with all that we've got planned. Our events range from games nights to educational talks and from ice skating to charity dinners, with regular chill socials dotted in between - definitely an event to suit everyone's interests!

Our aims as a society revolves around these three mission statements:

  1. Growing a more connected Arab & North African community at UCL while establishing links with the outside world; maintaining them through social, alumni and networking events.
  2. Educating, discussing and providing events to members and non-members alike regarding our rich  history, diverse culture and divisive North African and  Middle Eastern politics.
  3. Giving back to the wider Arab & North African community through charity events and inspirational university days.

As well as all of this, we are launching a new networking scheme where you can find other Arabs, alumni or student, in your department/faculty/industry, that you may not have met otherwise, so that you can ask them any questions you may have and explore opportunities newly available to you. 

Another event that will run throughout the year will be weekly Arabic classes, so whether you're a complete beginner, need to brush up on your ا ب ت, or just want some conversational practice, make sure you come along to our taster sessions at the start of the year!

This year we are introducing a new perk available to members ONLY, combining the two things students love most: saving money + food = STUDENT DISCOUNTS. Discounts range from 10-20% off and feature a range of restaurants close to uni and around London. 

The Arabic Society is committed to providing a fun and welcoming atmosphere for all Arabs on campus and those interested in the Arab world. Our diverse committee means that nearly all of the Middle Eastern and North African countries and UCL departments are represented, so you'll fit in for sure! 

We hope you are excited for next year as much as we are!!

We have been working hard over the summer to get our own website up and running, so please check it out at:
