What We Do

What is the Scandinavian Society? First off, let us clarify it is open to everyone, no matter your nationality! We’d like to think of the society as the perfect way to meet new people, all while being introduced to the Scandinavian culture. We organize many diverse events, whether it’d be an ABBA social in a club, a Viking pub crawl, playing crazy games for Valborg in a park, or on a trip, they are guaranteed to give you times to remember: we give an authentic Scandic university experience.

Reasons to Join Us

Our cost of membership is only £4, and you will definitely get more than your money’s worth over the year! We provide cheaper tickets to all our events for members, as well as some of our larger events being exclusively available to you! And as we said, the society gives you an authentic Scandic university experience all the while having great fun, so why not join?
