UCLU German Society

The UCLU German Society was founded in 2004 by Immanuel Wolf with the intent “to further integrate the department, as well as promote the numerous events relating to German culture taking place in London”. The current president for 2016-17 is Adam Kousgaard.


The Society has since grown to be one of UCLU’s largest and most active student societies on campus, boasting more than 350 members that take part in a variety of more than 100 highly popular events throughout the year.

As the largest university in London and one of the leading academic institutions worldwide, UCL attracts some of the best students from German-speaking countries; some of them are starting their university experience or visiting for their Erasmus year, others matriculating in Masters Degrees, continuing their studies with a PhD or researching with some of the best scholars in the world. For these students, the German Society offers the opportunity to keep in touch with their native country and provides a platform for academic and social exchange.

The German Society prides itself in being a cultural society with a varied and exciting programme of events across the year.
