A warm welcome to the newly formed Student Association of Bangladesh coined as “Bangladesh Society” which is affiliated with the University of Canterbury Student Association (UCSA), University of Canterbury. We, the current undergraduates, post-graduates and alumni of University of Canterbury, represent our beloved country named Bangladesh. Bangladesh Society is indeed open for those who are enthusiastic to intermingle with people for the exploration of ideas, talents and interests of them and willing to promote socio-cultural traditions of Bangladesh. We are eager to provide a platform for all the members of this association to participate in activities on campus and outside of campus through educational and cultural events.
At this point, we look forward to collecting members for Bangladesh society. This is a unique opportunity to engage you with us to uphold and expedite the spirit of Bangladesh and its culture in collaboration.
