Since its foundation in 2016, the UCL Ex-Yugoslav Society aims at promoting the knowledge and understanding of the people, land, languages and cultures of the former Yugoslavia (Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia and Kosovo).
Each year, we take joy in organising a broad range of social and cultural activities. Some of those include tastings of local cuisine (Burek, Rakija, Wine & Cheese…), conversational language classes, karaoke, film-screening nights and much more! In addition to these fun get-togethers, we also work on keeping our members and wider audience informed on various political events, via our weekly newsletters and articles. On top of that, we invite external speakers to give educational talks on particular topics linked to the region. Last but not least, our job also consists in joining forces with other Eastern European student societies and organisations: partnerships are established with other societies, including those of UCL, other London universities or even those established in other countries!
Be it with some nice Sarma, delicious Cevapi or some Rakija, by buying your membership, you will either feel like at home, or have the chance to explore the cultures of the former Communist state.
Don’t worry about not having an Ex-Yugoslav citizenship; we are more than happy in welcoming students of all backgrounds wishing to learn about the region! We make sure all events are English Language Accessible.
If you have some questions, don’t hesitate to contact one of our 2020/2021 Committee members:
- President: Ema Mauko
- Treasurer: Laila Hadžiomerović
