Academic Communities

Academic communities are groups of students who are brought together by what they are studying. You can find friends in the places where you spend the most time and that’s on campus at your lectures – academic communities provide the opportunity for events and activities to fill your social time with these friends, but also offer co-curricular things to help with your studies.

The most likely group you will join is an academic society relevant to your course, for example, the Law, Business & Economics and Creative Writing societies to name a few. They're run by students and will put on events throughout the year. As well as their events, there will be loads of great things happening on campus during and after lectures for you to enjoy. And remember, these events are put on to make your studies better.

If you have any ideas for what you want to see, speak to your Society, Programme Rep or click here to email Priya, our Academic Communities Coordinator.






Start a new Society

It’s so easy to set up a new society and it’s all laid out here. You can also come in and have a chat with Priya or Joe in Dreadnought to find out more about how we can help with funding, promotion and other perks of being a student group.
