Page:Societies Funding

Funding is provided to affiliated societies from the Students' Association in the following ways:

Funding League

This is funding which is distributed automatically at the beginning of every academic year, each society is judged based on how well they performed the previous academic year in the following areas:

1st Registered for the coming year by the deadline

2nd Society Pack submitted by the deadline

3rd One-to-One meeting arranged and attended

4th All committee members completed the Student Leaders Programme

5th At least 3 events created on the Students’ Association website

6th Charge a Fee

7th No of Members

Societies will receieve the maximum amount available by performing well in each of these areas, the actual figure of funding changes each year and is dependant on the number of societies and overall budget. 

Dragons' Den
