For the first year, all student groups are registered as Associate. After this first year, groups can choose to either remain Associate or change to Affiliate.
Registration requirements for Associate Groups:
- Names and contact details of at least one member for the purpose of liaising with University staff
- Number of members
- Group communication platforms and social media information
- A written end-of-year review
The first step to beginning a new student group is to complete an Expression of Interest. We will then be in touch to go through the next steps with you.
