Join a society
Many students' unions have lots of different clubs and societies you can get involved in – anything from street dance and rowing, to marketing or international.
- These are great for getting to know new people and as extra-curricular activities.
- You can take part in projects, competitions, tournaments, or social events.
Look for jobs
They often list volunteering and employment opportunities too – either roles within the students' union or course provider, or external vacancies they recommend.
So it's a handy first place to look if you're interested in work possibilities.
National Union of Students (NUS)
The NUS is a voluntary membership organisation which promotes, defends and extends the rights of students and develops and champions strong students’ unions.
Many students' unions are part of the NUS.
