Start Your Own

So you've got an idea of what society you want to start, what now?​ Check out the steps below to get your society up and running in no time!

 

1. See if anyone else likes your idea, who else is keen on what you're doing? Get some friends involved or total strangers, it’s a great way to meet new people! You need at least 10 people interested to get this approved by the Exec Team.

 

2. Find a partner or someone who would like to help you run the society, trust us, this really makes the whole thing easier and more enjoyable for you.

 

3. Fill out the Societies Formation Pack which is found on our website, it’s simple and any help you need with it, we’re here for you. Send your completed Society Formation Pack to student.union@leeds-art.ac.uk using your student email address.

 

4. Sit back and relax while the Exec team and Student President go through your Formation Pack and either approve your society or send a few more questions your way.

 

5. Wait for your Society Approval from the Union Team before going ahead, we may invite you to a meeting to discuss your ideas. We will also get you to sign the Society Leader Code of Conduct and set up a society email and socials for you!

 

6. It begins! Run your society, have fun and enjoy. You’ll be supported by the Union all along the way.
