WHY SHOULD I JOIN A SOCIETY?

Being a part of other activities at the University is valuable for your own development and your future. Employers look for more than just good grades but seek people with initiative and confidence. They look for people who work well with others, have been responsible and involved in organising events and who have taken up challenges other than just been in the classroom.

HOW DO I JOIN A SOCIETY?

Deciding on which society to join can be a little daunting but also very exciting. Membership forms are available on the top right hand corner of this webpage. You are most welcome to visit our offices and equire about societies and we will inform you of the contact persons for each society. By participating in the activities and projects organised by the various societies, you will gain leadership, communication and social skills.
