Clubs and societies
Much like life itself, your time at University is better spent with friends – and one of the best ways to make new mates is to join a club.
With over 100 registered clubs and societies, there’s bound to be a group of like-minded people for you to meet and bond with.
Or, if you see a gap that needs to be filled, you can always start a new club.
A range of subsidies are on offer, through either the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) or your relevant association. You can use this funding to help put on an event, purchase relevant equipment, or simply promote your club.
Student Central can also help your group meets all its legislative and legal requirements.
Firstly, at least two members of your Executive are required to have completed the Generation Governance online module, after which you will receive a Certificate of Completion to add to your resume.
Student Central has also developed a robust program of events, workshops and training sessions to assist executives make the most of their experiences.
