Missing home? Wishing that you're back home but that's a good 17 hours flight away?
Thinking about backpacking across South East Asia but know nothing about it?
Looking for food socials and fun and diverse cultural events?
Well, this is the society for you!
Welcome to UEA South East Asian Society! This society is open to anyone and everyone regardless of whether or not you’re from South East Asia. South East Asia is made up of 11 different countries namely Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam.
Leaving home to study abroad can be pretty tough, so why not join a society where you can meet people from the same country, as well as those in neighbouring countries. Or come along to learn more about the plethora of cultures in the region. Many of the countries in SEA have different festivals all throughout the year and we strive to acknowledge and even celebrate some of these festivals together.
UEA South East Asia society aims to unify the diverse cultures within and to bring people from different cultural backgrounds together with the sole objective to have fun and have a quick break from the hectic life of university. We will be planning plenty of events and socials where you’ll get to mingle with others, eat and have a great time.
We are aware that Southeast Asia is a popular backpacking destination for many people and we hope that our society can provide a little insight to what SEA is all about (minus the costly plane ticket there).
