How I got an Internship | November 5th

Trying to stand out from the crowd can be exhausting; especially in a competitive society. Internships can help young people discover what they want to do whilst giving you exposure to the professional world. The concept of sharing experiences remains at the heart of our ethos at Satifs and we hope to expand this in our upcoming project, ‘How I got an Internship’. We give students a platform to share their story of how they managed to achieve a summer internship.. Sign up here.

A Story Through The Qur'an | November 4th

Stories are very effective in trying to get an idea or a moral across to an audience. We will go through a story of the Qur’an word by word so that you have a deeper understanding rather than just looking at a translation of the whole verse. Through this class, students will grasp the many gems in the Qur’an and will begin to appreciate the deeper intricacies that are otherwise hidden. Sign up here.

Empowerful | October 17th

We have each been given a lifetime to journey; to achieve; to make a difference; to sew our thoughts into the fabric of humankind… but how?

Via inspiration. We crave it; we aspire towards it; we actively search for it in our daily lives and, when found, we treasure it dearly. But then, what do we do when our inspiration simply ‘runs out’? Who and what can we turn to when we need a motive to carry on? Empowerful is an event created by a small group of people with big hearts and the belief that inspiring one another empowers one another to help change the world we live in for the better. Sign up here.

Big IFF Comedy: Laugh your ISocks off | October 7th

A freshers event in partnership with UCLU Islamic Society. Sign up here.

Summer Qur'an Immersion | July 27th- August 14th

This course is an intensive program which will equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills required to appreciate Qur’anic literature; applying what you learn to your everyday Arabic. Whilst journeying through the Qur’an, students will grasp its linguistic miracles by thoroughly analysing vocabulary, understanding the literary meanings and identifying rhetorical tools.

You will get the opportunity to immerse yourself by studying simple stories in Arabic which you will learn to translate within the relevant context. This will then reinforce the retention of the vocabulary and grammar you have learnt, and allow you to learn the different ways of applying and using them.

As well as translating and understanding Arabic texts, you will also watch cartoons in Arabic. Thus, not only will you improve your analytical skills of deciphering grammar from written texts, you will also develop your understanding and listening skills- a key skill for language acquisition. Furthermore, it will bring to life the written grammar and texts you have been studying, but more importantly allow you to further enjoy and appreciate the Arabic language.

Satifs Startathon | June 13th-14th

The Satifs Startathon is a two day competition that aims to instigate creative thought in entrepreneurship and business. In simple English, we want to help you turn your ideas into something more. To make this happened, we’ve partnered up with the Black and Minority Ethnic Network at University College London.

How I beat the 9k (SOAS) | December 14th

 

The rising tuition fees have essentially made debt the norm for students. According to the BBC and the Guardian, graduates are expected to have a student debt in the region of £53,000-£60,000.

This event aims to inspire students to realise that debt is not the only way. We have a panel of current university students who are making their way debt-free. Each one will explain:

1. What motivated them to decide to opt against the student loans.
2. How they are raising the sufficient funds to cover the cost of their degree.
3. Advice they feel current and future students could benefit from.

The event is usually followed by a Q&A as well as an informal session where attendees will be able to ask the panel any relevant questions.

The concept of sharing experiences remains at the heart of our ethos at Satifs and we hope to expand this in our upcoming project How I got an Internship. We are partnering with the Black and Ethnic Minorities Officer at University College London to give students a platform to share the story of how they managed to achieve a summer internship. Although there are many resources currently available from corporations, we hope to share these experiences from the students themselves in order to prepare prospective applicants further.
