The Oxford University Africa Society (AfriSoc) focuses on African affairs at the University of Oxford. The Society seeks to set the agenda for the future of the African Continent by providing a platform for students hailing from or interested in Africa to critically engage. Above all, AfriSoc is a community of change agents passionate about Africa.
Our Society came to life in 1958 and has become the platform for the discussion of African contemporary issues. It became a vibrant forum within the University at times of many African states becoming independent after decades of colonialism.
The society is an official student club of the University of Oxford (registered through the Proctor‘s Office on an annual basis).
The activities of the society are regulated by the University Standard Constitution and the Africa Society By-Laws, consolidated in this document.
