Take a look at our inactive societies, as you may be able to simply adopt one. This is like a fast-track version of starting a new society!
Having said that, if you would like to start a completely brand new society from scratch, our affiliation form can be found here.
All of our societies are student-led. They are run by committees, all of which must have a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. Committees can also have 5 additional roles to complement the 3 core positions (i.e. Events Coordinator or Social Secretary). Unfortunately, sometimes societies don't manage to find a committee for the following year. Consequently, they can't run as normal and are made inactive.
Societies are like mini communities on campus. They are a great way to make friends with similar interests and increase your social activity. As you know, every society needs a committee to run it. If the society you like the look of is inactive, you and 2 others could be the ones to give it life! Committee positions are voluntary roles which look great on your CV. Committee members will have to complete a compulsory induction training and will be invited to specialised society workshops too. These are great opportunities to enhance both personal and professional skills.
If you'd like to restart one of our inactive societies, let us know! To get it off the ground for this year you’ll need another 2 people to help you run it. Once you’ve got your committee together complete the form below and we'll be in touch!
