Sports & Societies

Sports & Societies are led by the elected President of Student Activities (formerly Vice-President) and range from high performance sports such as football, rugby, and badminton, to popular activities like costume design, musical theatre, and dance. The opportunities that Sports & Societies can offer are endless.

Anybody is welcome to join any sport or society; you can even create your own. Studies have proven that involvement in both sports and societies helps potential future employers see key skills and characteristics, including leadership, teamwork, dedication, and determination, meaning taking part in a sport or society can benefit your CV and employability.

The societies on offer at the Students' Union give you the opportunity to meet like-minded people who have similar interests to you. Together you can dance, compete, sing, act, create, train, fundraise and so much more.
