Student Activities

Your student experience is much more than just going to your lectures and club nights. The Activities Section is here to help you find everything you need to make the most of your time at University and beyond.

Whether it be trying new activities and making new friends through one of our Give it a Go sessions to getting to know your local community and building your employability skills though our Volunteering projects, or fundraising for your favourite charity with RAG to presenting your own radio show the Activities Section has something for you!

We also offer a variety of training sessions through the year helping you to build and develop on your existing skills, as well as running the Futures Award to reward and recognise anyone that is involved in any of the activities that you take part in through the Students’ Union.
