Start a Society

Start a Society

 

If you've got a great idea for a new student-lead group, we want to hear from you. Whatever your passion or interest, running a society will help you to bring like-minded students together, opening you up to a whole network of people you didn't even realise you had right here on campus. 
 

Here's how you get started:

1. Write down your ideas.
What will make you stand out? What are your aims for starting a society? What events would you put on? 

2. Once you've got a new idea for a society, read through the Training Resources. This will give you a good understanding of what running a society looks like and if it's right for you.

3. Make sure you have a minimum of 3 committed people ready to be the President, Treasurer and Secretary. You must have these three committee members willing to step in and run the society. If you're an elected liberation officer starting a liberation society, you do not need these committee members ready and can go straight to filling an application form.

4. Fill in this application form. Once filled in, send it to su.activities@uos.ac.uk and we'll invite you to pitch it to Activities Committee! If your society is approved, we'll provide committee training and then you're all ready to go! 

The dates for Activities Committee are below. You'll need to send your application in a minimum of one week before the Committee meets to be discussed at that following date:

• 20th October

• 17th November

• 2nd February

• 2nd March

• 4th May

• 1st June

 

If you have any questions, you can always get in touch with us by dropping into the office or emailing us at su.activities@uos.ac.uk.
