Clubs and Societies
Clubs and Societies are entirely student-led, but these are supported with advertising and occasionally funding from the Students' Union. As these groups are led by students, they vary year to year, so please check back here for the latest information, including the sign-up form.
Below are all of the current Clubs and Societies. If you'd like to join one or more, please fill in this form.
Once you have submitted this form, your request will be processed and you will be added to the email groups, which are managed by each group leads. Your request may take up to 7 working days in busy periods. You will get a confirmatory email once your have been added to the requested groups.
If you don't hear anything from the Clubs or Societies after some time, please contact the Lead(s) as listed on this page in the first instance, but feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions or issues.
If you would like to set up your own club or society, please email email@example.com with more information.
