The vice-president of the university Romanian Society last week told his members he had “a lot of gratitude” after being awarded a prize by the Romanian embassy.

During the 2020 conference of Romanian Students, Professionals and Researchers in Great Britain, the League of Romanian Students from Aboard rewarded students from the whole country for five categories: undergraduate student, graduate student, research, Romanian community and student associations.

The Essex Romanian Society won the Ambassador’s Diploma for the best student association.

The vice-president, Alexandru Alexandrescu, said that he thinks his Romanian society had the honour to won this award mostly because of their programme of teaching and learning about student life in the UK, because of their support among students, and for their multicultural activities collaboration with other societies within the university, like the Chinese Society.

”The Romanian Society is special because of the people that made it, because of the culture that crowned and most important is special because our main goal is to help students to feel at home and to understand the English world,” he said.

The League of Romanian Students from Abroad organised the conference by Zoom because of the covid-19 epidemic. Dedicated entirely for Romanian students from England this award is given by the Romanian Ambassador for the students who work hard developing projects alongside other international associations, who stood up in different activities as voluntering or who have good grades in UK`s universities.

The Romanian Society tries to bring together Romanian students and those students who are interested in Romanian culture. It promotes the culture and traditions of the country and helps students with support and information during their time at university.
