President's Message

Oxbridge Malaysia - Society Information

 

Dear Members,

A very warm welcome to the Oxford & Cambridge Society Malaysia website!

According to our Constitution, our 55-year-old Society exists to hold an annual Boat Race Dinner, which this year will take place on April 5th at the Royal Lake Club in Kuala Lumpur.

But our activities and ambitions have expanded greatly over the past half-century.

We now provide an avenue for alumni to socialise and exchange ideas on business, political and cultural events; or simply to reminisce about how much better (or worse) things were in the old days.

The Society has over 500 members, not including our affiliations with the Malaysian student bodies currently studying at Oxford or Cambridge.

All alumni of the Universities or Society members are cordially invited to pick and choose from the three main areas of the Society's activities: social; political/cultural; and educational outreach. Details are emailed to members regularly as well as published on our website.

We aim to hold at least one event each month and we warmly welcome the input and involvement of all our members.

We welcome any comments or feedback and the Committee can be contacted at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Finally, the Society’s Exco consists of 12 members who meet every month to plan itineraries and organize events.

I would like to extend the Society’s thanks for their time, energy, and commitment to the cause of making 2014 a very exciting and interesting year.
