There’s a range of clubs and societies at the university. They are open to everyone to join. Most of our clubs and societies are organised by the Students’ Union and are run by students for students. New volunteers are always needed, and you can get involved in the running and promotion of a club or society that interests you.

What clubs and societies can I join?

You can join as many clubs and societies as you like.

Sports Club members can compete or just train for fun. The clubs include Badminton, Basketball, Climbing, Cricket, Football, Hockey, Rugby, Trampolining and more. To find out more visit the Students' Union Sports Club webpages.

Societies bring together students with common interests – they are open to everyone and include: Christian Union, Disabled Students' Action Group, Islamic Society, Afro-Caribbean Society, Poker Society and the International Society. For more information visit the Students' Union Societies webpages or the International Society webpage.

If you’d like to set up a new society – talk to your fellow students and the Students’ Union.

Why get involved?

Being a member of a club or society can help you to develop a wide range of skills including promotions, advertising, marketing, presentations, finances, organisation, time management and recruitment.

Employers are often interested in the extra curricular activities pursued by prospective employees whilst at university and consider involvement in clubs and societies as a worthwhile part of a rounded university education.

All clubs and societies organise social events and are a great way of meeting people.
