Clubs and social environment

Please tell us more about the social environment, sports clubs and societies and anything else you think candidates need to know about life at your university.


"There are loads of societies and sports clubs on offer."
"We have lots of different sports and societies to get involved in. If there isn't one you fancy then you can start your own."
"The university has lots of academic and sporting activities."
"There are over 100 societies ranging from sporty to nerdy. There's plenty of variety."


"Societies meet in the union on Wednesdays for socials. There are many sports clubs and competitions."
"I'm not part of any societies but there is a range of different societies to be a part of. Also, if there isn't one that suits you, you can make your own."
"There are lots of societies to choose from and everyone is friendly."
"Societies were the best and the history society ruled!"
"I definitely recommend joining a society or sports club. There are a lot of different things to try and it definitely builds your confidence up! It's a good way to get to know people on campus outside of lectures and the (terrible) nightclubs. The social life can be a bit sparse without societies to be honest. Everyone is really friendly and accepting here and everyone supports each other. We all go to the charity events and events organised by societies/the axis theatre."
"It's an amazing university with a green campus and it also focuses a lot on sustainability."
"Societies are some of the best around and you can even create your own. Sports teams are the best with teams such as football, rugby and hockey having won their BUCS leagues this year."
"Manchester Metropolitan University offers great societies, events, voluntary work, student jobs, support from lecturers, tutors and the student's union. It's a really good university with a genuine interest in their students doing well in their career paths."
"Great social environment and there are a lot of great sports offered."
"The university offers a range of different societies, both academic and sport. There are many sports clubs on offer with a swimming pool and gym linked to it."
