This past year, our sports teams have had a change in infrastructure, meaning the University is now providing better development and coaching for all players. We’re now building a new winning culture at Staff and you can be a part of it.

Societies are student run groups that offer students the opportunity to continue their hobbies, learn new skills, meet like-minded people and get the most out of your Staffs experience.

Societies are one of the best ways to open yourself up to new opportunities, gain new skills and maybe even learn more about yourself.


Education makes the world turn. Academic Societies are a great way to meet people with similar interests and make sure your CV looks great in terms of extra-curricular activities.
