Academic Community Project

You have consistently told us that as students of City University, you want to see more events related to your subjects and more opportunities to develop your CVs. Sounds interesting? Read on!  

We have some fantastic student societies which are here to run events and bring people together, so we wanted to use this great foundation to build something new. Empowering the groups to step up and become wider-reaching and more formalised groups working with the University. This project is something a bit different, very new and we are so excited to work with you on it!  

Academic Communities will be groups run by students, supported by the SU staff and partnering with the Academic Staff at City University. The aim is to empower these groups up to run exciting and engaging events across this strange year. Each group will get £150 into their budgets and a set of pre-structured events to run for their members! These events will be related to your course or the industry you might hope to work in after University!  

There will be some groups formed out of existing societies, but we have some gaps to fill (see below). You will get support from the SU and University to host events and iron out any issues you may be facing. 

In a year where COVID-19 has ruined many of our plans, we  want to work with you as students to build these communities into strong and sustainable networks operating online and soon (fingers crossed) in person too! 

WE NEED YOU! Help us set up a society for your course!:

We are here to help to make starting a new society as easy as possible. All of the new Academic Societies will be given £150 to get them off the ground,  will be selling membership for just £1 to make it as accesible as possible to student and will be given tailored support from SU staff to help you create regular events.
