Taster Week at AUBSU 2019



Monday 23rd - Sunday 29th September 2019


Looking to try something new whilst studying at University? Maybe you’re wanting to share your passion for writing, or even take part in our student publication BUMF – Taster Week is the perfect opportunity to get involved at AUBSU. 


What is Taster Week?

To help give all you keen beans a sense of what there is on offer, we’ve collaborated with some of the cool clubs, societies, and networks that (fun fact) are all student run! We've arranged this handy little week to give you a chance to explore and decide what you’d like to get involved in. Don’t worry though – you don’t have to commit to anything (we’re not that clingy) and you can always jump into a new opportunity whenever you want throughout the year!


How can I get involved?

That’s theeasy part – you just show up! There are a few sessions which you will need tickets for in advance, such as Climbing and Stand up Paddle Boarding – but other than that you just bring your awesome self and have fun. 


What if I want to go to two things that clash?

During the week, some of the taster sessions will actually run differently to when that particular club/society meets up. Where can you go to check that information you ask? Just check our full club/society/network list here to get all those fire details:



What about Give it a Go, what’s that?

We're are glad you asked! Give it a Go is a fun little programme (funded by Sports England) that gives students the opportunities to take part in some pretty awesome weekly sessions for just £2. These include: Boxing, Fencing, HIIT Fitness, and Strength & Balance. We're are also organising a new campaign called 30 x 3, which means if you do 30 minutes of exercise as part of GIAG, you can collect stamps, which in turn means you can get some prizes! Want to get involved? Just turn up with £2 and take part – it’s really easy.

Nothing is compulsory, it’s all optional – your studies will always take priority, but it’s always nice to have something fun on the side, right? Don’t forget – there are lots of ways to get involved at AUBSU, including democracy, events, and volunteering opportunities – just jump in and have fun.
