Fellowship Of Coptic Christian University Students (FOCCUS) was established in 2000 to cater for an increasing number of Coptic Orthodox youth studying at various universities and higher education institutions.
The FOCCUS societies are designed to operate on university campuses as an embodiment of ‘taking the Church to the people’ in their natural environment, while at the same time being a part of the university student union. The students themselves run the FOCCUS societies under a general co-ordinator, and the overall supervision and guidance of their Patron.
FOCCUS aims to:
1. Serve all Coptic Orthodox students on campus,
2. Serve other Coptic Orthodox youth in the area of the university or campus,
3. Introduce the Coptic Orthodox Church to others.
