Student Activities faqs
Clubs, Societies & Networks
What's happening with Clubs, Societies and Networks?
Our clubs and societies are all student-led and we completely respect the decisions made by our amazing committee members about how they want to run their groups this term in the face of everything. This means that there isn't one way that our clubs & socs are running this term - some activities will be online, some might be postponing until restrictions are lifted and some might be trialling new things! But here's what we know:
- We've put measures in place to ensure that all our activities adhere to government guidelines and safety guidance. Your safety is our first priority and no activities will take place that we haven't planned and risk assessed.
- All in-person sessions have been cancelled due to lockdown (from 05/01/21).
- We will be monitoring guidance in case restrictions change around indoor and outdoor sports. We are running some online sports sessions, including Boxing, Yoga and Taekwondo.
- You can still get involved with clubs, societies and networks - check their webpages and social media pages for info on what each group is doing. You can still purchase memberships, as this will help societies run and also give committee memberships your contact info to send updates about their activities. Most of our societies are free or a couple of quid for the year so don't worry if your budget is tight! All memberships can be bought via soc pages: aubsu.co.uk/clubsandsocs – make sure you’re logged in to see the membership links.
how can i get involved?
We recommend checking out what clubs & socs we have (aubsu.co.uk/clubsandsocs) and joining the facebook groups of any that you're interested in (links on their society pages). That way you can keep up to date with their plans directly.
The community and social interactions that these groups provide is essential to wellbeing and help you to feel connected. We're strongly encouraging all groups to engage with online/digital activities amongst their groups, where possible.
