Start a new society

Why not start your own society? 

Have you got a passion for something that you would like to share with others?

Do you have a great idea for a club that you think other students would like to get involved with?

Leading a society can be a rewarding experience; you'll pick up loads of new skills and will be having an impact on other students' experience. Any currently enrolled Brookes student can start their own society; all you need to get started is a great idea, a handful of like-minded students and the ability to fill out a really simple form.

 

What to do now? 

1) Inform yourself

Find out about the benefits and regulations for Student Union affiliated societies here.

 

 2) Submit a New Society Proposal Form

Use the form to explain what your society will be about. You should list at least 10 current Brookes students who will be interested in joining your society. Submit the completed form to su.societies@brookes.ac.uk, and the Societies Team will let you know once we have considered your proposal!

3) Once you have been approved as a society

If your proposal has been successful, the Societies Team will email you about the next steps you need to take to get your society off the ground. You will need to:

  • Register your society committee –  you will need a committee consisting of a president, a treasurer, and one more person.
  • Prepare some information for your section on the Union website, and create a logo for your new society.
  • Attend a briefing with your new committee.
  • Go have some fun! – You can apply for a £50 new society grant to help get your society started.
