A place where everyone can get involved in over 100 groups. Societies are student-run groups that offer students the opportunity to continue their hobbies, learn new skills, meet like-minded people and find their home away from home. We have so many Societies to choose from. Check out the Societies List to see what you can join!
We offer a real sense of community, and we aim to mould your student experience into what you want. With skills you never even knew existed ready for you to learn, so you can get more than just your course out of your years here. Your time at University is the time to take a risk and give your ideas a go. Let us help you take the first step.
