The Students’ Union plays a key role in Academy life. Whether you’d like to join a specific club, need advice from a friendly face or just want to make sure you don’t miss out on the best social events, we’re here for you.
Every enrolled student is automatically a member of the Students’ Union (SU). The academic year starts with Freshers’ Week, which is a great time to explore all the clubs on offer (but you’re welcome to sign up to any of our societies at any time). Other social highlights include the Christmas Party and Summer Ball.
We hold regular jazz jams, pub quizzes and karaokes and we often work alongside charities including Movember, Brake and Pets As Therapy. We have an ever-growing list of student-led clubs, including our LGBTQIA+, Ethnic Diversity and Feminist Societies, as well as Football and Basketball teams. Check out the full list of clubs & societies below!
