Saudi Society

Our Purpose

We are creating an umbrella that embraces all Saudi students, Arab and elsewhere, providing them with “a feel of home” away from the hurdles of studies and university routines. We are truly an open, international society and we aim to help create a positive atmosphere between all students regardless of their differences.

 

Our Aims

Our main aim is help our members at the university by being engaged locally in a wide range of cultural, academic or sports activities. We are also very keen to show a positive image about our country, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, by organising cultural events at the university.

We hope that our activities can help in promoting friendship and understanding across the university and in the wider community. The society will host a number of key events throughout the year, which includes short lectures, conferences, sport activities, regular social meetings and cultural festivals at the university and elsewhere.

We will organise the occasion of the Saudi National Day to clarify Saudi culture for those who have little knowledge of Saudi Arabia. In addition, we will organise different activities between the society and other societies in the university to allow intercultural communication.

Every year, our programme will revise and adapt to the needs and wishes of our members. Most activities will be free of charge and open to the public and usually include the following:

  • Arabic classes
  • Academic English Classes
  • Academic workshops for post-graduate and undergraduate students
  • Regular personal development courses
  • Games and competitions
  • Cultural  events and celebrations (e.g. Saudi National Day, Eid Celebration)
  • Cooperation with other societies
