Want to meet like-minded people, make friends and enjoy fun activities during your student experience? Get involved with as many of our societies and Give It A Go events as early as you can!

Societies

There are over 50 different student-run societies, ranging from academic groups to faith, culture or lifestyle. You can meet them all at the Freshers' Fairs and join as many as you want. You can also join a society at any point during the academic year. And if you don't see one you like - grab a couple of friends and start your own society!

Give It A Go

Give It A Go are free events, organised across the whole year to give you a break during your studies and offer you a chance to make friends and learn new skills. These events vary from creative pottery painting and badge making sessions to fun activities like go-karting, bowling and diving. They have limited spaces, ensuring a cosy and friendly atmosphere.
