ABACUS, the Association of British and Chinese University Students, is a society that aims to promote and celebrate Chinese culture in the UK.
Founded in Cambridge and now in its 11th Year, ABACUS continues its founding aim of bringing together British and Chinese cultures.
IC ABACUS is unique, in that it is one of the few societies at Imperial to exist in a larger network with other universities in London, allowing us to host huge events with them in some of London's most exclusive venues! We've also planned an exciting range of smaller events in between, from celebrations for various Chinese festivals, to dinners, sporting events, and more laid back socials.
Everyone is welcome and our members range from British Born Chinese students (BBCs) and international Chinese students to those from all different backgrounds with an interest in Chinese culture! It is an amazing place to meet new people, enjoy good food and attend some of the best events in London! Our membership card also entitles you to discounts at many Chinese restaurants and cafés in London!
So what are you waiting for?! Find us on Facebook at 'Imperial College ABACUS' and come and find us at Freshers' Fair, we can't wait to meet you!!
