Develop Your Group

All groups want to develop to be able to offer more for their members as well as take their activities to the next level, below we have a number of tools to support you when planning to develop your group.

Book a development meeting

In July every year the Societies and Sports Team are available for development meetings to discuss your development plans and your goals for next year. All groups must have a development meeting so we're aware of what you're planning to do for the year and how we can help you achieve this. 

Deadline: Please make sure you've booked a Development Meeting before 31st July.

are you a society? 

To book a development meeting, please fill out this form.

In the form, please provide as much availability as possible. One of the Societies Coordinators will find the most suitable time and send across an Outlook calendar invite with a Zoom link or in-person location.
