Welcome to ABACUS, the Association of British and Chinese University Students!


Are you interested in:

  • Weekend Yum Cha 🥢
  • Chinese game nights 🀄
  • Chill mingles ✨
  • Kpop and Karaoke 🎤
  • Xmas Ball 🎄
  • And even more...?

As a social and cultural society we're all about providing a safe space for all UoB Students. Through diversity, inclusivity, and understanding, we welcome everyone to connect, meet up and share meaningful experiences. Especially if you're a Chinese UK-born or international student looking for a place to belong, you're welcome any time any day. x


If making friends - coupled with looking like you belonog on the cover of a multi-ethnic university prospectus - sounds appealing to you, become a member for just 3 GBP. Discover ABACUS for yourself! :)
