A real community
We want you to feel part of a real community at UCB. The Guild has a huge range of societies and clubs you can join, including our liberation societies like Disabled Students Society or Queer Society, or our interest societies like Musical Theatre or E-Sports.
Our groups cover social activities, interests, sports and campaigning so no matter what you’re interested in, there is something for you to get involved with. If you feel we're missing something you'd love to be part of, we can even support you to set up your own society.
Work while you study
If it's possible to give provide work to University College Birmingham students, we do. We do our best to make as many of our roles suitable for part-time student staff as possible, with students doing everything from running our cafés to processing our paperwork.
