Student societies

FECX SocietyMany nationality groups form student societies during their time at the University of Birmingham.  The University of Birmngham Oriental Society (formerly known as FECX) has members from a variety of different Far Eastern countries such as China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and many more. A large majority of the oriental society is made up of international students from Hong Kong. This is an excellent way to keep in contact with home and also provides an opportunity to highlight your culture and customs in the UK. Student societies are also a useful point of contact for prospective students to Birmingham who may want to contact current students for information. For a full list of student societies please visit the Birmingham Guild of Students website at
