You will need to complete a New society form and wait for the Activities Coordinator to get in touch with you. To start a society, you need at least 5 other students to support the society and you will need to decide on your society committee. Your application will be reviewed by the deciding panel. It must fit these points:
- The aims and objects of a society do not contravene Union policy.
- The aims and objects of a society are not duplicating an existing society.
If approved, we will then ask to meet with yourself and as many of the students also listed on the form to discuss the next steps for your society, including committee training and setting you up with a webpage. Once your society has been put up on the website you can sign up as members and pay your membership fee (if applicable).
If your society is denied, we will get in touch to meet with you to discuss how your application can be improved.
