Societies

The Union runs and supports over 200 societies on a huge range of issues, hobbies and interests. access to societies is currently free, but societies charge an individual membership fee starting from £3 per academic year.

Notable societies include; Livewire, Medsin, Medsoc, Nightline.

The Union welcomes new clubs and societies when they fulfil a need for students, and are not replicating what is already provided by an existing club or society. All clubs and Societies are run by elected students, and have a committee that will at least consist of a president, secretary, treasurer and Union Council Representative. There are also Sports and Societies Councils where the Union delegates a great deal of power over spending of the relevant budgets to the presidents of those clubs and societies.

Award winning university clubs and societies

Joining in is part of the fun of student life and there are more than 200 clubs and societies at UEA (voted first place in the WhatUni student choice awards 2014), which will allow you to meet others with shared interests, whether it’s climate change, drama, photography, music or basketball. All of these groups are open to all students – so why not get involved? Membership is not just the best way to meet people but it enhances your CV too.

Run by students, for students

We are happy to provide some of the best Union funded Clubs and Societies in the country, helping students to make significant changes in their communities. All of these groups are run by students alongside their studies, and provide students with a wide array of opportunities to learn new skills, meet new people and get the most out of their time at the University of East Anglia.

Campus life and student opportunities at UEA

At UEA, we are lucky enough to have excellent sports facilities, which are available to use by our societies. If your interests lie more with theatre productions, live music or comedy, find out more about our wide range of entertainment options.

For more information about UEA societies or student life, speak to the Student’s Union or visit our facilities page.

The Union offers lots of opportunities for UEA students to enjoy student life away from the textbooks. We like to think that we offer something for everyone and if we don’t we can help you to develop new activities that you’re passionate about. All our societies are run by student committees who volunteer for the Union to bring these activities to you.

Without our volunteers the Union would not be able to put on the amazing amount of activities we do. We support all our volunteers with training, time, advice and grants. If you would like to start a society, go to the new society section and we will do all we can to help. Societies, Campaign and Peer Support Groups are a great way for you to meet other students who may be studying something completely different to you but who share a hobby or outside interest.

Through societies, campaign and peer support groups, the Union empowers students to make change in their communities. All of these groups are run by students alongside their studies and provide you with a wide array of opportunities to learn new skills, meet new people and get the most out of their time at UEA.
