Association of British and Chinese University Students (ABACUS)

Student Communities

The Association of British and Chinese University Students (ABACUS), was founded in 1994 at the University of Cambridge. Over the years, ABACUS has spread all around the UK and there are now no fewer than fourteen branches of this society whom we shall maintain close links with.

These branches exist at: Imperial, UCL, LSE, KCL, SOAS, Nottingham, Brunel, City, Queen Mary, Goldsmiths, City, Cardiff, Kent, and Cambridge respectively.

The University of Oxford and the University of Leeds both have a similar society. The University of Southampton ABACUS is founded in November 2013 by a group of both international and British Chinese students.

With our similar culture and aims, we firmly believe by having ABACUS in Southampton, we can create a more diverse and welcoming community for both our members and the university as a whole! .

Human Powered Submarine

External Engagement

We are a group of students at the University of Southampton that design, build, and test human powered submarines to compete internationally! We have competed at the International Submarine Races in 2015 and 2017. The races took place at the Naval Surface Warfare Centre in Carderock, USA. The society consists of approximately 50 interdisciplinary students from various academic tiers including undergraduates, Masters Students, PhDs and EngDs. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds including engineering, naval architecture, astronautics & aeronautics, biology, chemistry, physics and environmental science. However, just because you're not a STEM student doesn't mean you can't get involved! We welcome students of all disciplines to join us.This year we aim to compete at the European International Submarine Races held locally in Gosport. More information on the race can be found here:http://www.subrace.eu
