Welcome to the Exeter Pakistani society!
Please visit our Facebook page and Instagram for details of all of our events!
The Exeter Pakistani Society provides a forum for promoting and preserving Pakistan’s rich: history, culture, music, food and art. We hope to represent all of Pakistan, from the snowy peaks of Kashmir; lush valleys of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa; fertile plains of Punjab; majestic deserts of Baluchistan to the shores of Sindh.

The main aims of the Pakistani society are as follows:

•To act as a representative and a contact for organizations that promote cultural exchange, between the UK and Pakistan.
• To act as a source of information for Pakistanis who are interested in studying at Exeter as well as others.
• To establish a support system, for new Pakistani students by aiding their transition to Exeter.
• To build, a positive image of Pakistan and therefore, present a counter narrative against the negative stereotypes that often arise because of misinformation: about the country and its people.
