Sports, societies and activities

Don't sit on the sidelines. Get involved.

There is more to your experience here than study. Choose to make the most of it. Be social. Be curious. Step outside of your comfort zone and try new things. You won’t just learn about other people, you'll learn about yourself.


We believe that you get more back when you give a little in return. A fresh new perspective, CV-enhancing experience, confidence and new skills, for starters. We can even connect you to opportunities related to your potential field.

"I'm a big advocate for people joining societies. I joined Hub Voice student magazine in my second year. I was Assistant Editor and I absolutely loved it. I'm joining the History Society next year as their social media guru."
