Sign-up and get involved
All our societies and clubs are open to anyone to join, regardless of
gender, ethnic origin, race or sexual orientation. You can sign-up at
Freshers' Fair during Freshers' Week or visit the Students’ Union reception
at any time. Alternatively visit the clubs and societies web and Facebook
Set-up your own club
If none of the existing societies appeals to you, then you can start one
up yourself. All you need is a society start-up form from the Students'
Union reception and 20 signatures from potential members.
