Posted in: Extra-curricular activities, First year, Freshers' Week, International students, Students' Union, Undergraduate, Volunteering

New to uni? Trying to fit in? Trying to find your interests? The Students' Union groups have it all covered for you! The University of Bath, have over 400 societies that cover a wide range of interest including academic, sports, recreational, cultural and religious. Each has its own unique selection process for the committee roles and plays an integral role to enhance the student experience, increase diversity, and provide an abundance of opportunities for students.

Not a day goes by in Bath without these societies having to organise fun and interactive activities, open to both members and non-members alike. Different societies organise different events ranging from socials in order to unwind after a long and tiring week to day trips and excursions to inter-society events in form of sports matches and collaborations to society specific events like the celebration of religious festivals and socials. The societies can be broadly classified as sports, culture, art, food and executive committee. 

The selection process for the committees is a challenging, but rather rewarding process, which not only looks good on your CV but also gives you skills in time management, a sense of teamwork, responsibility, contact building and increases your personal relationships.

There are a variety of classes run by these various societies to keep you occupied through the week - for example, the Bath Fine-Art Society holds weekly sessions open to all. The Salsa Society and Pole Dancing Society are often seen performing in and around campus and town. The Music and Drama society hosts interactive sessions and performances throughout the year.
