Start a New Society

If you've looked at what's on offer and can't find a society that matches your interests, start your own! We'll help you every step of the way and soon you'll be meeting with likeminded students while enjoying all the financial, promotional and administrative support MDXSU can offer. 

Leading a society has lots of benefits. Firstly, you'll get the chance to meet lots of new people and forge new friendships. Furthermore, as part of the society committee you'll gain experience and skills that look employers love - from leadership skills to events organisation - and you'll create connections and networks that could help you pin down that dream job post graduation. The time and effort you put in can also be officially recognised within our society recognition scheme, plus it might win your society an award too. How amazing is your CV going to look?

We require at least three students to lead a society, with two of those students filling the essential roles of president and finance officer. You can then choose the third role from a number of different options. If you'd like more than three students on your committee, that's perfectly fine - and again you can choose from a range of roles. Please find more information about each of the committee roles here. Make sure you read this before deciding on positions!

Although MDXSU staff continue to work remotely, we're still available to support new societies get off the ground.

All you need is: 

  • A new society idea
  • A minumum of 3 people keen to lead the society
  • 1 must be the President (compulsory role 1)
  • 1 must be the Finance Officer (compulsory role 2)
  • The third role title is up to you!
  • Once you have this, please email with you idea and committee member's student emails.  

If you have any questions, please pop an email over to our Student Groups Coordinator at
