Welcome to the UEA International Development Society Page!
DEVsoc is a UEA society associated with the School of International Development. We welcome both Dev and non-Dev students and try to create an inclusive group where like-minded people can meet, have fun and get to know each other.
We put on a series of events (both social and academic) throughout the year. These include quizzes, BBQs, guest lectures, film nights and our annual Christmas ball!
We are a very friendly and welcoming group of students so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us through Facebook or email if you have any questions, concerns or ideas for events, we would love to hear from you.

My name is Bereket and I’m the new president of International Development society for 2020/2021. From the start of this September(2020) I will be a third-year International development with economics student, and me along with the committee we will be looking forward to hosting our new members in September. We as a society are committed to providing a wholesome experience based on three key principles; Socials, academics and post-uni career events. We understand that we are not able to engage with you in the same way that we would during normal times and therefore we know that the way we interact you will be very different, but we a society are ready to take on that challenge and provide you guys with the best possible experience. Look forward to seeing you all in September!
