Starting a group couldn't be easier.  All you need is:

  • A unique idea
  • Thee students to help you run the group

What happens next


The application will be reviewed by a member of the GSU Activities Team. If they need more information they will get in touch with you.

All new Clubs and Societies must be ratified through the Activities Committee, a committee of fellow student group leaders in place to help represent all GSU Student Groups.  This committee will be at the end of an application cycle to review your application and make the decision on whether to approve the student group.

If your application is successful, you will then be invited to attend training on how to run a student group which will cover the basics of finance, marketing, getting and keeping members and other useful information.

If you have any other questions please contact for more information.
