To create a new society you'll need a minimum of 4 students to form the committee. The required roles are Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Inclusion Officer. All societies have the full support of the Students' Union. We provide comprehensive training, day-to-day support and development opportunities for all committee members. You can find the benefits of being a society committee member here. If you have any questions about starting a society, please get in touch.


When you have 4 students who are happy to sit on the committee, please fill out the form below. All Society Affiliation Forms are reviewed by our Vice President Activities and Student Development Manager. When they have made a decision, a member of the Student Development Team will be in touch to let you know whether your application has been successful or not. If successul, we'll support you in getting your society off the ground.
