We do it for the passion

Societies are a great way to share a passion or try something new with other students with the same interests. Whether you’re interested in sports, arts and crafts or faith, there is something for everyone.

However, if you don’t see a society you’re interested in, why not start your own?  It’s easy to do and we’ll help you with filling out forms and all the information you’ll need.
