Warwick Korean Society - Who are we?
The Warwick Korean Society prides itself on not only being one of the biggest, but also on being one of the most dynamic, and truly unique, societies at the University of Warwick.
Founded in 1996 to initially unite the Koreans at Warwick, we have rapidly established ourselves as a social, and cultural, hub within the Warwick community since officially joining the Warwick SU. Thanks to this increased interest, the WKS now represents members from every corner of the world.
As a society, our primary goal is to unite everyone of our members, including alumni, to create a solid networking platform on which members can interact to build a bright future. Moreover, as a cultural hub, our fundamental goal is to provide all our members with a genuine insight into Korea. This way, we hope to aid members to visualise Korea in various disciplines, ranging from cultural to political. The WKS offers various opportunities throughout the year, which are open to everyone. We hold regular public lectures with renowned speakers from various fields - such as finance, culture, and politics to name a few. Furthermore, we offer scholarships, mentor schemes, networking, and career opportunities.
On top of this, we also hold numerous cultural and social events. K-pop parties are held at local venues, which allow members to not simply socialise, but to also enjoy the music! Regular Korean-language classes are offered to anyone wishing to learn, and communicate, with our Korean members. Moreover, our film nights allow attendees to experience masterpieces of Korean cinematography, and needless to say, they can act as a learning process for those who are hoping to speak the language. Finally, during the festive seasons, we offer events with traditional Korean food and activities.
The Warwick Korean Society also actively engages in sports both at intra and inter-campus levels. Annually, we participate in the university’s Ernst & Young football league, and basketball leagues, where we have been of much success. Not only that but we also compete against other Korean Societies in the UK.
-The Warwick Korean Society is more than just a cultural society.
