Give It A Go Logo

Ever wanted to try a new activity, but weren't sure if you wanted to sign up without trying it out, or been too busy to do regular classes but wanted to fit in trying new things? Then Give It A Go is for you!

This is the Students’ Union activity programme that allows you to make the most of your time here at university and offers you the chance to meet loads of new people by being able to try a range of new and different activities - hassle and commitment free.

Get involved!

Give it a Go offers an active and varied programme of events and activities for you to try including:

  • Sports on campus
  • Public lectures at the University
  • Trips to cities and sites around the UK
  • Live music
  • Creative workshops

Many of our activities and events are run at a beginners level and at very little or no cost to you, so there's no reason not to try something new today!

Many of are sessions are just turn up and play or are run off campus in the local community, so to take part you just simply need to be there.

Any sessions with tickets will contain all the instructions you need on how to sign up in the event page.

We add Give it a Go's all the time, so check the events listing below regulary and see what we've got going on!
