One of the best parts of the whole uni experience is making lifelong friends. By joining a club or society, you’ll meet people who share your interests in so many different things — from gaming to religion — there really is something for everybody. And if there isn’t a group for your interests, why not start your own?
The proper (and boring) definition of a society is: “an organisation or club formed for a particular purpose or activity.” So we asked the students from Manchester Met's societies to tell us what their definition is. Here's what they said:
- Gilbert And Sullivan Society
- Yoga Society
- Debating Society
- British Asian Society
- Pole Dancing Society
- ISOC Society
- Manchester Hindu Society
- Hive Radio
Take a look at all of the different societies you can join.
Once you get to University and you have your email and student number, go to The Union’s website and sign up as a student. Then, you can search for the group you want to join and pay for your membership online.
There’s a few simple steps to setting up a new society. If you're unsure or want to talk to someone about setting up a society, feel free to drop us an email. Otherwise, crack on with the below to get started!

- Have an online meeting with The Union.
- Complete the Societies Accreditation Form (this will be emailed to you).
