clubs & Societies

There is much more to campus life than lectures and study. Clubs are a great way to meet others, share similar interests and perhaps make a few mates along the way. There are social clubs, sporting clubs and those of an academic nature, but if there isn’t one that ticks your boxes, then form a new club today.
