Societies

You are here:

Societies offer an opportunity to get together with a group of like-minded individuals who share an interest or hobby.

Interested in creating a society of your very own? Complete the new society interest form to begin the process.

Societies are one of the best ways to make your life at university more exciting. They are a great way to have a more varied social life, meet new people who share similar interests, and widen your social network beyond just your course mates or the people you live with.

In order to be a society, you will need eight members and you will receive full support from the Students' Union and can apply for up to £500 to assist with the development of your society, from organising events, attending trips or inviting guest speakers which can give you new perspectives, outside of what you might be learning in lectures. 

We are here to help and if you are unable to get eight members, don't worry, societies with 3-7 members will have society status but be known as a Start-up Society where you will receive full support and guidance, however funding will not be available.

For those on a committee, you can develop some really useful skills whilst working through your society accreditation (teamwork, leadership, organisation, problem-solving etc) which will benefit you once graduated and looking for employment.

Thanks to The Big Deal, joining is free! So what are you waiting for? Take a look at our offering and get stuck in!
