Societies are one of the best ways to make your life at university more exciting. They're a great way to meet new people who share similar interests and widen your social network beyond just your course mates or the people you live with. As a BNU student, you're automatically a member of the Students’ Union which means that joining a society is completely free - thanks to The Big Deal.
To join to a society, all you need to do is sign up for a free membership on the society’s page and once you've done that, you're officially a member of that society. A member of the committee will reach out to let you know what events and sessions they have coming up and how you can get involved. The best part is that, no matter how you study, you can join as many societies as you like – whenever you like!
Want to start your own society? Even though we have a huge range of societies, we understand and appreciate that we don’t have every society. If it doesn't exist, why not start it? All you need to do is find 3 people who are interested (one can be yourself) and contact email@example.com.
If you see this crown, it means that the society has been rewarded for all their hard work over the past year and been crowned Society of the Year 2022-23. This year, that title has gone to the Tabletop and Gaming Society. If you see a rosette, then the society is one of our accredited societies and has engaged in the wider Students' Union and worked their way through the accreditation scheme.
