Student Life

The clubs and societies at UCEN Manchester reflect our diversity and the passion of our students. We want everyone to feel like there’s a group for them, so our Students’ Union is always open to ideas and suggestions for new clubs and societies. Examples of some of our current SU societies include:

This is a place to celebrate the amazing African and Caribbean cultures. Our society is inclusive and embraces every nationality, so all are welcome. 

Join us to help get the word out about us, or just to have fun and socialise.

Network with students across our creative departments. It’s a great opportunity for any student who wants to utilise knowledge and skills of other students and collaborate on projects, share ideas and attend extracurricular events.

Unite with students who have a passion for the written word, creative arts and personal writing across all courses. 

You can take part in constructive critique sessions and networking events, make useful publication contacts and hear guest speakers such as script writers, authors, bloggers, poets, illustrators and more.

The football society trains regularly on our Nicholls campus, so come along and take advantage of our fun and competitive training sessions. We have lots of regular fixtures in our calendar, so there are always opportunities to join and have the chance of travelling with us to win some matches against other college teams!

Our training sessions are twice a week and fixtures are usually on Wednesdays.

We meet every week to play Xbox 360, PS4 and other computer games together, chat about games and have a good time. 

It’s a great chance to meet people who share your interests, make new friends and try out some games you might not have otherwise had the chance to.

The LGBT Society provides a safe, welcoming space to meet and socialise with other LGBT+ students. We support each other with any problems we’re having, play games and enjoy the chance to relax and be ourselves. 

The society is fully inclusive of trans members and we give everyone a chance to introduce themselves with the name and pronouns they want to use at our meetings, even if those aren’t the ones they use the rest of the time.

The Fitness Society is a place where you can discuss and meet with enthusiastic individuals who value health and wellbeing. Members of this society are able to use the gym and have access to a personal trainer (campus dependant).
