The UCL Azerbaijan Society is a cultural society with Azerbaijan at its heart. We will host a wide array of events to spread awareness about the interests/activities of Azerbaijani people, in one of the most multicultural universities of one of the most multicultural cities in the world.
There will mainly be a focus on cultural celebrations, as well as keynote events on the hallmark moments of Azerbaijani history.
The new UCL Azerbaijan Society has three core objectives:
A) To provide a welcoming environment for all Azerbaijani students at UCL.
B) To celebrate and expand the knowledge of the culture of Azerbaijan with the wider UCL community.
C) To provide networking opportunities for Azerbaijani students studying at UCL.
