Union Societies are overseen by the Societies Council – a group of elected students that have specific areas to develop and improve in order to improve the social offering for all of our students at Derby.

Societies are a big part of university life, they provide you with the perfect opportunity to meet like-minded people, develop a skill or a hobby or just try something new

We’ve got over 60 societies on offer ranging from Academic, Active and Performance, Charity and Campaigns and Religious and Cultural.

We also have a range of Microsocieties – these are our fledging societies that are in the process of becoming full societies. They just need members like you to join up and help them grow.

Check out the offer below and if there’s nothing that tickles your fancy; you can even create your own!
