How To: Form a society
So you're thinking of setting up a new society? Great news! We’re always encouraging students to think about setting up a Society if there’s not already one for your idea. Whether it’s just you and a few friends, a post you have seen on social media, or from your course chat, it’s likely there are lots of other people all thinking the same thing and would benefit from having a shared group to perform activities in.
In short, the formations process is as follows:
Step one: Find 3 people who want to run your society with you.
Step two: Submit an idea on your student dashboard under ‘Society Formations’
Step three: Development & Engagement Coordinator reviews your request
Step four: Attend a meeting with your Development & Engagement Coordinator
Step five: Hold a formation event
Step six: Student vote on Engage
Step seven: Student Executive Vote
