What criteria does my New Student Group need to meet?

There are a number of different ways to help your Student Group will get approved but make sure to consider the following when coming up with your ideas:

  • Unique: Make sure that your clubs/society stands out from others that exist here. Clubs/Societies that are too similar to others will not be approved.
  • Community: Think about whether your club/society idea will create a sense of community within its members, what can you do to ensure that it will work as a group
  • Workload: Running a club/society is a fantastic way to build your CV but it can take up a lot of time. Make sure that you can balance it alongside your other commitments and that you have at least 2 other people that are happy to dedicate their time to be on the committee.
