Bag A Discounted Student Opportunities Membership

Great news – if you’re looking to join a sports club, society or media outlet, we’re offering a 33% discount on Student Opportunities Membership for the rest of the academic year.

That means you’ll pay just £8 (usual price £12) to have access to our vast array of student groups, which is nearing a total 150, following the ratification of seven new societies since the start of the year.

Term two is always an exciting time for our student groups, as we host our annual Colours (9 March) and Socs (23 March) Balls to celebrate the achievements of our societies and sports clubs.

We also have the excitement of Varsity (27 March) as we head to Surrey looking for revenge following defeat on our own turf last year.

You are entitled to join one or multiple groups with this membership but please be aware that, in addition to this membership, each group will have their own separate membership fee.

What is a Student Opportunities Membership?

Our one, two and three year packages enable you to join one of our sports clubs, societies and media outlets on campus, each with their individual area of focus and unique personalities. As well as providing a lot of fun, it’s a great way to stay active and meet new people.

Why do you have to pay for a Student Opportunities Membership?

The Student Opportunities membership contributes to the ‘behind the scenes’ costs that go into supporting the success of each student group. This covers everything from arranging coaching contracts, booking training and fixtures, and transport hire, to health and safety, and support with putting on events and trips. Your membership fee also ensures that you are fully insured for the activity that you take part in as part of a student group.

In addition, individual groups set their own membership fee, which contributes to the running cost of the group for the year (i.e. coach/instructor fees, facility hire costs, transport costs). This ranges from £3 for some societies, through to £250 for some sports clubs.

Both Student Opportunities Membership and individual group memberships expire every year on 31 July. I.e. if you buy a one year membership in January, it will still expire on 31 July of that academic year, rather than 365 days later.
