Academic Communities

This is your one-stop shop to find events and activities that are based around YOU!

This is your one-stop shop to find your Academic Communities and events that are based around you and your courses! 
Academic Communities are groups of students who are brought together by what they are studying. The most likely group you will join is an academic society relevant to your course; there you can find friends in the places where you spend the most time – in lectures, seminars, and meetings. Academic Communities provide the opportunity for events to fill your social time with these friends, but also offer co-curricular activities to help with your studies. 

Remember, all students can get involved, no matter if you're a placement, mature, or commuter student, or a student with caring responsibilities? If you can't see something you'd like to get involved in, get in touch with our Academic Communities Coordinators and we can make it happen!
