Being a student on a great course at a fantastic college is crucial: but so too is embracing all the opportunities which will come your way while you are a student.


Although the main focus at College is your course, it is essential that you are able to enjoy events that aren’t linked with your course. Here in the SU, we believe that hard work pays off, however, there is an equal need to be able to enjoy downtime away from your course.

You might want to play for our sports clubs, take part in a fitness class, join one of the society groups, or become involved in the workings of student performances and festivals - whatever you do, you will be embracing a holistic student experience and adding value to your time here. All of the activities listed are subsidised by the Union and are there for you to enjoy.

Having just over 800 students, we are not a large Students’ Union, but we are incredibly supportive and eager to cater for your interests. Below is a selection of the societies we currently support. If you have any ideas and don’t see something you’d be interested, just come and have a chat with us, we are here to help you.



RWCMD has so many societies for you to get involved in ranging from Hummus Society to Latin American Dance and everything in between

Societies are a great way to try something new and mix with people from the whole college, not just your department. Some societies have been running for years and have become a tradition…such as the football team and their annual Music vs Drama game and weekly fitness classes.

It’s easy to suggest a Club or Society; simply collect 20 names of people who are also interested in what you would like to do and bring it along to the SU Office for a chat. The SU Executive will then approve the application and agree the level of resource you need and that’s it, off you go.

If you’re keen to start your own society please get in touch.
