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 many sports clubs and societies on campus but they're not equally accessible for every student."
"We have a good social environment, great societies and active sports clubs. There are good vibes everywhere."
"There are a variety of different societies and sports clubs to join."
"The uni has a range of societies and sports teams that you can participate in."
"There are so many societies and you can go along to a single session at a sports club if you want to try it out for £2. You dont have to join the official team to have a go, which I think is good."
"Societies have a good plan to follow and there are many societies that a student can join such as basketball, football, tennis and so on."
"The university has amazing facilities for all sports and a society for each so people can join and play competitively. Alternatively, there is a 'just play' session every week where you can just play for fun."
"The university offers a range of sports clubs and societies that anyone is allowed to join. This is the case whether they want to play competitively or if they want to just join for the social side of things."
"There are many societies to join, almost one for every interest and it's pretty easy to create a society too."
"Subzero is the best club around in my opinion. Sports clubs are free and there is a variety."
"Sports clubs are free, which is amazing. There are also many societies and it's easy to start up a new one."
"The university does have a selection of events and clubs but the town has a lot going on too so don't forget to check out both."
"There are loads of sports and fitness areas with loads of activities to do."
"Sports clubs are good but the training sessions are very often during lectures, so you might not be able to join the one you want due to clashes."
