Japan Society


Whether you're a native Japanese speaker or if you're learning the language and looking to improve your skills/  you just have a general interest in the culture/ new to the university and make some new friends, the Japan Society is here to connect students like those. We are an international society even though it says "Japan Society", we are here to connect Japanese students and all the other international students, to make great friendships and simply one's university life better and more memorable! 

We hope to have meetings and socials where people can get to know each other and we will be organising various Japan-related events, including film screenings, Japanese-English language exchanges, meals at Japanese restaurants, cookery tasters and sessions and nights out in Brighton.

Follow us on our Facebook page and Instagram for upcoming events and feel free to post/send us an email/message if you've got any questions.
