We run a wide range of social and educational events throughout the year, on our own and in collaboration with other societies, meaning we provide something for everyone. We also have two intramural teams (football & netball), as well as the Couch to 5K initiative, for our sportier members. Memberships include some fantastic discounts from our sponsors/partners and can be bought either for one year or as a lifetime membership.
