A club or society consists of five elected committee members who are the leadership team for the society members. These members are a group of like-minded individuals with the same interests in a particular area such as a hobby or a sport, a profession or career, a culture or faith for example. The club or society is a place where students pay a fee to become a member and will come together to build friendships, take part in activities together and, in some cases, compete in competitions.

Why should I join a club or society?

It’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends.
Lots of societies offer the chance to meet industry experts so you can network and build connections for when you graduate.
Step out of your comfort zone and increase your confidence by trying something new.
If the gym isn’t for you, joining a sports club is a great way to still improve your fitness.
Most importantly, it’s a way to have fun!

If you are a member of a club or society and would like to raise a concern regarding an event, meeting or a fellow member, whether it be face-to-face or online, please get in touch with the Student Opportunities Team on suclubs@bournemouth.ac.uk
