Joining a club or society or other group is a great way to make new friends and get involved while you are studying.
By joining a club or society, you take away more than a degree from University. You will meet people that share similar interests and will be able to create social and professional networks – use clubs and societies to build that little black book of contacts while having a great time being part of something you are interested in.
If you’re really keen, you can be involved in the Executive of your club or society, or volunteer to assist with the organisation or running of events.
These kinds of volunteering experiences give you great leadership and management skills and they look great on your resume too. Remember, volunteering can give you the edge when you apply for jobs – employers value volunteering, both for the skills it gives you and what it says about you as a person.
There’s something for everyone including sporting, social, cultural and spiritual groups. Each group holds a range of events across the academic year and new members are always welcome.
