Clubs & Societies

Our motto is ‘Unity in Diversity’ providing internationalism and the London experience.

Belonging to a club or society, setting up an enterprise initiative, taking up a volunteer placement, or participating in a cultural trip builds well-rounded, mature and responsible individuals who go on to make a positive difference in the world.

University is about much more than in-classroom studying.

Supporting student organisations

A wide range of student-run on-campus clubs and societies offer students unique opportunities to develop their skills and experience in preparation for life after Richmond.

The Art Exhibition Society, for example, encourages students to explore the wonderful art galleries within London as well as meet with alumni working in the field, and the Green Project looks to impact the local community through hands-on volunteer work while student leaders from the International Affairs Society seek to develop greater international links.

We will empower students to get inspired, involved, and learn skills that will stay with them for life.
