Student-run clubs and societies

Getting involved in clubs and societies is a great way to meet other students from your country and from around the world. There are many societies run by the Union Southampton, the Student's Union, for different interests, religions, sports and academic groups.

Events and representatives in your country

The best part of the city which I like is that the majority of the population comprises of students here. Hence one does not feel alone and it is very easy to mix with other people
