Visit the Students' Union website to have a look at some of the societies you can get involved with, and find out how to get involved.
Joining a society is a great way of trying out something new and gaining new experiences, or developing your ability at something. You may be able to participate in competitions if you join a sport or academic society, or you can develop your communication skills with societies that focus on events and discussions, such the debating society or religious societies.
Most societies run frequent events, meetings and trips, and the skills that you gain from these experiences can be great for your personal development and for your life after University.
Societies are also a great way to meet new people and broaden your connections. These new connections could not only benefit your career in the future, but most of all will help you settle in, make friends, and even make you happier.
Most importantly, joining or starting a society can be a very rewarding experience, and by getting involved with something that you’re passionate about, you’ll have a lot of fun along the way.
