African Development Forum

The University of Birmingham African Development Forum (UBADF) is a new initiative at the University of Birmingham. We are a network of Arts, Science, Engineering, Business, Law, Economics & Social Science students who as a society seek to become a new platform for articulating various opinions on the African continent’s economic, educational, infrastructural and political progression in the 21st Century.
Membership to join is only £3 a year, and in return we aim to foster an environment which is particularly aimed at developing the entrepreneurial and careers skills of the members through : Networking & Presentation Events, Public Debates, Guest Speaker Events, Socials, Careers Events, Trips to International Development Conferences, and work with similar Societies at other Universities.
