University of East Anglia 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.
