Societies are groups formed and led by students, which bring together people who share a common interest. If you’ve got an idea for a new society, we can help you set this up - here's what you need to do.

Step 1 - Have an idea

Do you have an interest of hobby you want to enjoy with others? Do you want to help bring together or represent a specific course or group of students?

Step 2 - Find other students

Find two other students who are interested in your society. You need a minimum of three UWS students to start a society.

Step 3 - Submit your application

This is where you tell us about the society you want to set up and provide us with the necessary details to enable this. Completing this will also help you develop a plan for the society.

Submit form

Step 4 - Attend training

Once your application has been processed the Student Opportunities Coordinator will get in touch to invite you to your Society Training Session.

Step 5 - You're good to go!

Once you've completed this process you'll be ready to start promoting your society and organise your first meetings and events.
