Can't find the society you're looking for? Why not start one from scratch!
To create a new society, we need a minimum of 3 students to form the committee. This will be in the roles of Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. When at least 3 students are happy to sit on the committee, you can fill out the form below.
When you have completed/submitted the form, it will be reviewed by our Vice President Activities and Student Engagement Manager. When they have made a decision, a member of the Student Engagement team will be in touch to let you know whether your application has been successful or not.
If your society is affiliated, you will be informed about how to book in for an induction session. All committee memebrs must attend this so we can get your society off the ground smoothly! You will later be invited in for a training session so that you know all the ins and outs necessary.
Please note that you cannot return to this form at a later date - please make sure you're ready to fill it out in full before beginning. If you have any questions, concerns or issues with the form, please email email@example.com and we will do our best to advise you.
