"Check out the 'give it a go' page regularly as there are loads of new things you would never have heard of otherwise to enjoy and try. There are also a wide variety of societies available to join to make new friends and enhance your skills."

"The social environment at the university is very relaxed. There are plenty of social spaces where you can eat, relax, chat and study. The gym offers many classes to students and they come included with membership. As for societies, our university has hundreds and we often collaborate with other universities close to ours, which gives you the chance to meet new people and participate in their events."
"There are a lot of sports clubs to take part in from football to trampolining and cheerleading."

"There's a massive variety of sports clubs and teams. The freshers fair showcases the clubs and societies you can join. You're spoilt for choice at this uni."
"The university pretty much has a society for everything and, if they don't, you can start one up if you gain enough interest with it among peers. There are societies relating to every degree course in the university where students can develop their knowledge of their courses and have the chance to speak with more senior students and gain valuable tips and pointers."
"The societies form the main social life outside of the nightlife. There are so many, a huge variety and it's really easy to set up a society if one doesn't exist. A lot of societies do see the social aspect as essential though, so if you're not into that you might feel a bit left out of some groups."
