Supercharging your university experience with clubs

Our University has more clubs than you've had late-night study sessions.

Today there are more than 100 different clubs available on our campuses. Club members create activities, make lifelong connections and friends, work in teams, and prepare for the next step in their career.

You could be enhancing your studies together with your new besties, swing dancing, gaming, enjoying fitness, or making art. Whatever your interests are - there's a club for that.

Our clubs are full of inspiring people sharing common interests, building skills to complement their studies, and meeting new friends.

We chatted to club members from the Mature Age Student’s Association to find out what it’s like being in a club and the importance of building soft skills.

Meet Bethany, vice president of the Mature Students Association (MSA).

“Recently, the MSA has hosted a morning tea event as a social meetup to help mature students connect with one another. I enjoyed the social environment of getting to know other mature students and learning more about their unique experiences within academia and outside of it. This Friday (24/3/2023) we will be hosting our first monthly event for the semester at the UniBar between 5 pm and 7 pm. Come and join us!”

Clubs are also a way to improve employability. Just ask Nez, president of the Mature Students Association.

“My position as President of the MSA requires me to be a problem-solver/conflict resolutionist, task delegator, communicator, and manager overseeing all club resources and support programs. These skills are transferable skills: everyday skills that are helping me further develop professional competency whilst having fun with new-found friends.”

Clubs really are one of the most rewarding ways to find friendships and pursue academic and personal growth. All non-sporting clubs are supported and funded by YouX to help students thrive and enjoy a rewarding experience at university.
