Are you moving away from home? Excited? Nervous? No doubt this will be a difficult time for you. There may be times when you find things hard to handle or you may need questions answering. But know that ISoc is there for YOU!
We are committed to help you regardless of background, faith, denomination, sex or nationality. We are here to advise, help & reassure all students in any matters, be they religious or non-religious such as accommodation, the best places to eat Halaal food or to point you in the right direction to the local mosque or Multi Faith Centre. We endeavor to make your stay at UCLan as smooth & comfortable as possible.
The ISoc works meticulously to portray the true image of Islam. We have a brilliant team of committed & enthusiastic volunteers who strive to create change for the better & provide a fruitful understanding of Islam on campus. Some advantages of getting involved with the ISoc are;

There is something for everyone to get involved in. We hold a mixture of activities throughout the year including the Fresher welcome meal, sister tea party, charity week, UCLan Hijab Day, Fashion show, football tournaments, cake bakes, fundraisers, Discover Islam Week, Eid Dinner & much more!
We also facilitate the Friday prayers (Jumm'ah Salaah), daily prayers & regularly host internationally & nationally renowned scholars to talk on Islamic issues such as pharmaceutical ethics, da'wah, evolution, unity, women in Islam are just to name a few.
