East Asia Society
Departmental/AcademicJoin This Group
Welcome to the East Asian Studies Society!
We are the departmental society for all those studying Japanese, Korean or Chinese or East Asian Studies (making up the School of East Asian Studies) at the University of Sheffield. We also welcome everyone who has an interest in East Asia - you definitely don't have to be in SEAS to join our society!
Our society is a safe space for international students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, and a great opportunity to meet and make friends with people from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Starting out as a platform for support, learning and providing work experience opportunities, we have grown to accommodate the wide-ranging wants, ideas and ambitions of our society members. This year in particular we will be experimenting with a whole new range of online activities and opportunities for our members so that everyone can be involved while still adhering to guidelines - your safety is a priority for us. These activities include:
- Online talks and lectures related to East Asia
- Online film screenings
- Online quiz nights
- Online group games
Please follow our social media to keep up to date with our society's activities - and our email inbox is always open for any inquiries.
We hope to see you soon!
All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.
A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students' Union.
It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
