Hi! We are Cardiff University Japanese Society and we’re happy to see you have found our page!
Our society is all about creating lasting friendships and having fun. Our members are students from all across the world; international students and home students alike are welcome to join our society. We mix aspects of our different cultures, primarily British and Japanese, together to create a new environment for students to meet others with similar interests.
In pre-covid times we organised a wide range of events throughout the year. Weekly socials, which were perfect for getting to know new friends in a casual environment. Language exchanges which enabled Japanese language students to practice Japanese and in return help students studying English. MLANG societies collaborations such as Halloween Party, Cocktail Party and MLANG Gala which were great get togethers for all.
This year we will be organising a range of fun virtual events to comply with covid restrictions and will hopefully be able to have in person events too at a later date. These virtual events will include film nights, gaming, quizzes and socials in which you can meet other society members and make friends in our online Japanese Society community. Furthermore, a lot of our events this year will be in collaboration with the other MLANG societies – French, German and Spanish and Italian which will give you the opportunity to meet a wide variety of students with an interest in languages. Additionally, we will have language exchanges organised by our Japanese Language Co-ordinator, Ayana. For these we are hoping to pair up with Universities in Japan so that members interested in language practice can have partners to practice with. For in person events we will start off with small group get togethers for coffee or a meal, and then expand that if and when restrictions are lifted.
New this year we will be collaborating with other UK university JSOCs. We will do this through the UK Universities Japanese Society Collective (2020/21) founded by Cardiff University JSOC president, Georgia. This co-operative of JSOCs will give us all the opportunity to access more events during which we can meet and make connections with students studying at different universities all across the UK! We are hoping to organise big inter-uni competitions and socials which will be great fun to get involved in!
If you become a member of our society, please join our Facebook group on which we advertise our events. This and our Facebook page, Instagram and discord server can all be found here: https://linktr.ee/cardiffunijsoc
We hope to meet you at an event soon!
Love from the Cardiff University Japanese Society Committee
