If you are interested in starting a new society you should contact the Student Group Coordinator through firstname.lastname@example.org, to talk through your idea.
It's not as hard as you may think, plus you'll receive help from Union staff throughout the process and after as a ratified group.
You should consult the list of existing student groups here
to see if a similar society already exists - we are unable to accept duplicate groups.
The Application Process
Applications to register new societies are accepted throughout the year using this form.
- You should have determined the group's aims and objectives.
- You should contact any similar existing groups to discuss whether there would be any conflicts or concerns.
- You will need to have a president, treasurer and secretary.
- You should seek out other interested students to demonstrate support for the group.
Societies Committee meetings for the discussion of new society applications, will be set at the beginning of the academic year, subject to change if necessary.
