Below is a step by step guide to starting a society, it’s really easy and it won’t take you long. You could leave a lasting legacy at University – imagine coming back here in 20 years to see your society thriving!
Please note the committee will now not meet until end of January/early February!
- 1. Have a look through the guidelines to setting up a new society
- 2. Create a draft constitution; this will need to be uploaded to your application form. We have created a template for you to use.
- 3. Complete an application form below. The form will be used by the Activities Committee to decide whether you should be become a registered society or not. Remember the more detailed the application form the better!
Your application will then be sent to the Activities Committee who will meet every two weeks during term-time. They will discuss your application in their next meeting and you will receive an email with the outcome shortly after.
If your new society is approved you will automatically be allocated £100 as a start-up budget. Before gaining access to this budget, you’ll need to get 20 members to sign up and pay membership, hold an Annual General Meeting, register your society and complete online training.
