One of the most exciting opportunities available to you while you’re at university is the opportunity to join, or start, a society. Here at Leeds Metropolitan there are over 40 societies for you to choose from, you can join as many as you like, and if you can’t find one that interests you – you can start your own.
All societies start life in the mind of a student and the Students’ Union will support you in starting your society and making it successful. There are also an ever-growing number of course-related societies which can help you put some of the skills you are learning into practice and equip you with some excellent, relevant graduate attributes.
There are many reasons to get involved with a society, not least because it adds enormously to the value of your university experience and employers love former committee members. Most of all, societies are a great way to have an amazing time, doing what you love, with like-minded people.
