Start your own Student Group


Welcome to the new student group application page! Have you got an exciting idea that nobody else is doing? Would you like to give your CV a little boost? If you've got an interest that doesn't already exist in our list of groups, why not be the trailblazer that sets it up!


Here is the 5 step process of setting up your own student group. 

1. First you will need to fill in an application form - you can complete the form here.

2. One of our Activities Team will let you know they have received your application within 10 working days (Monday-Friday). They may ask you a few more questions to strengthen your application. 

3. All applications are reviewed by our Student Officer panel at their catch up meetings. 

4. Once this meeting has taken place, you will receive a decision on your application. 

5. If your application is successful, you will receive training and support from the Activities Team to help you get your group up and running. If your application is unsuccessful, we will let you know why.


And it's as simple as that!

Please be aware that we will not be accepting any further applications for weekly competing and/or high cost sports clubs this year due to funding. We may consider these applications if the group can demonstrate that it is self-sufficient and can run without requiring funding support from us for its first year.
