Founded in 2010 by a group of Armenian students, the UCL Armenian Society provides a link between Armenian culture, society and language, and student life at University College London. The society has been active in holding key events throughout the year regarding diasporan and native political affairs, cultural evenings and exciting social nights. A fundamental aim of the society is to provide an opportunity to learn about the country’s historical and cultural values, as well as looking into key issues that the nation faces as a whole. Furthermore, the society also helps the integration of students coming from Armenia and abroad by integrating into both the university community and the local Armenian community in London. This is done through sporting, social and cultural events held frequently during the academic year.
