A World of Societies: Created by Students, for Students

Published by Beds SU

If you are looking to meet like-minded people who share the same or similar interests or hobbies, then joining a society is the perfect way to do this.

Beds SU is proud to be home to a wealth of faith, academic, cultural and common interest/recreational societies run by students for students.

All societies look to meet regularly throughout the year with previous activities ranging from:

  • External speaker sessions, social gathering and charity bake-off’s with the Midwifery society 
  • Revision support and socials with the Paramedic society
  • Building social enterprises with the Enactus Bedfordshire society

Jess explains why she loves being part of the dance society

Societies will be offering in-person and virtual opportunities this year

The pandemic didn’t deter our societies from finding new ways to continue enjoying time with their members, with a host of societies offering members virtual opportunities to join. As we start to move back to campus societies will be looking to restart lots of face-to-face activities as well as maintaining some virtual opportunities where possible. Keep an eye out on our society and event pages for more details.
