Social activities

To help you settle in, meet other students and make friends, there's a full programme of social, cultural and language activities run by the University and our Students' Union.

Whether you're arriving outside of term time or during the academic year, you'll find lots of opportunities to take a break from your studies, practise your English in a relaxed environment outside the classroom and get to know more about the UK.

Many social activities are free and some cost around £10 to £20. Read about events and activities taking place in summer 2021.

From September to June you can choose from more than 300 student-led clubs and societies to get involved in. This is a great way to try new hobbies and meet students from different courses who share your interests.
