University isn't just for studying, and we want to help you make the most of your time here at London Met! So, if you have an interest or passion that you're keen to develop, why not start your own society? Starting your own society can be great for...
Adding value to your CV
Showing that you were involved in activities outside of your degree will be a huge plus for your future employers!
Making new friends
Who doesn't love meeting new people and making friends? Societies are a great place to meet like-minded people.
Gaining new skills
University is all about developing yourself, so why not get involved with a society and develop a skill you never knew you had?
Developing your confidence
Confidence is key to being successful, and getting involved in a society can greatly improve your confidence inside and outside of University.
You never know who you'll bump into at a society event. Use societies as an opportunity to meet influential people who could be helpful in achieving your goals!
Allowing you to give back to the community
The local community is so important at University. Why not help give back to it in some way?
Gaining recognition for your efforts
If you're involved in a society, this will appear on your degree transcript!
and most importantly...
From September 2018, joining a society is FREE.
