Student societies

EPS SocietiesOur active and successful student societies form an integral part of our community; providing an avenue for students to interact with one another, supplement their studies, engage with alumni and industrial professionals, and volunteer in the local community.

We are home to a diverse mix of student societies with some of the University's most specialist teams and campaign groups. From exploring the Universe to railways, programming robotics to gaming, internationally competitive automotive teams to sustainable engineering, science communication and diversity, our students do astonishing work not just in academia but also to promote career opportunities, outreach, volunteering and, of course, sporting and social events. We're also home to some of the University's oldest and largest societies, with two even pre-dating the institution, and some of it's newest! Not forgetting our 12 subject-based groups and three College-wide sports teams. There really is something for everyone!
