Welcome to UEA ABACUS

ABACUS - Association of British and Chinese University Students - was founded in 2022 with the core value of uniting Asian students from all backgrounds (Chinese, Malaysian, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, British-born Chinese, etc.).

Regardless of nationality and beliefs, we embrace both the Chinese and English cultures. Through hosting and organising fun social events all throughout the year, we aim to promote stronger connections within the UEA community, and create long-lasting friendships between participating students.

Throughout the year we hold monthly events and festival events! Our range of events is endless, meaning there’s an event for everyone, including fresher welcome events (e.g. City tour + bubble tea), food outings and events (e.g. Chinese Hot Pot, Japanese food night, Dimsum, Korea food night...), inter-university dinners (e.g. Chinese New Year dinner, Christmas Dinner), games and activities (e.g. karaoke, rollerskating, cardgames, mini-golf, trampolining...).

Join our Facebook group and follow our Instagram to keep updated on all the social events we are holding throughout this year and we will be sure not to disappoint you!

If you have any questions or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact any one of the committee members directly.


In February we have FREE do something different events every friday & special Valentine's event!
