UCL Pakistan Society
University College London
A part of the 8th best university in the world (QS World Rankings 2019/2020), the UCL PakSoc (Pakistan Society) hosts a range of different events throughout the year to encourage students to socialize and enjoy extracurricular events with other students. Some of our most notable events include our Winter Boat Party (with Bangladesh Society) and our hugely successful Pakistan week; where we held a range of fun events and raised money for the Shahid Afridi Foundation (SAF). We hold regular socials to create a sense of our own community, allowing students to stay connected to their roots. We are also keen to stimulate our members intellectually, through debates and conferences around affairs in the news, especially regarding Pakistan, to increase the student engagement in matters affecting Pakistanis all around the world. Although the primary focus of most events is contemporary and traditional Pakistani values, PakSoc boasts an inclusive culture open to students from all backgrounds, sometimes even holding events in collaboration with other societies so as to promote diversity and integration.
