Wine and Cheese Night

On Thursday 7 September, we hosted our annual Wine and Cheese night after our introductory lecture. We had a good turnout with about 50 people attending the lecture and the wine and cheese night. The committee was very happy to see so many new faces. We certainly had a lot of fun meeting everyone. We hope that you enjoyed your night as much as we did!

Freshers Pub Crawl

Our next event is our Freshers pub crawl. This will take place on September 14th. We start at 7:30pm at Vodka Revolution (25 Belmont Street, AB10 1JS). It only costs £15 and members get free entry to Underground after! We hope to see many of you there for a, what is going to be, great night!


There are open positions for our academic journal, the International Academic. Positions open are those of editor and sub-editor. More information about this will be released on Wednesday, so please tune into our Facebook page.

A Soul for Europe

We are hosting the first ever UK “A Soul for Europe” conference. The overarching theme for this is “Who is assuming responsibility for Europe?”. A full blog post about this event will be posted later.


We hope to see you on Thursday!
