Being a postgraduate student can be challenging and would require support from internal and external areas, and this was the motivation for us to present our PG society.


We wish to welcome all PhD’s and Master students to our society, where we are aiming to make the PG’s journey more connected, friendly and reachable by everyone. We would like to increase postgraduate, international and home students’ participation and awareness, by improving communications between those student bodies and the Students' Union. Moreover, to ensure that each PG’s ideas are well presented and implemented in university environments.


Our aims:

-       Bring all PG’s together in a social and friendly environment.

-       You are not alone! We would like to support all your needs during your journey, to make it a remarkable experience

-       Provide you with the right information or direct you where to find them whether it’s academic, wellbeing, financial, or social.

-       Ensure that your voice and ideas are well presented and implemented correctly for our current and coming PG’s.


We look forward to a more engaging and participatory society in order to have an enjoyable and memorable year.

Sports Club and Society Terms and Conditions.

When you enrolled at the University of Huddersfield you opted into our services, which allows you to obtain a Sports Club or Society Membership. In order for us to provide you with the best experience we will process your data for carefully considered, specific and legitimate purposes which are in the interest of delivering our services and enhancing your experiences as a member of Huddersfield Students’ Union.

Sports Club and Society memberships can be bought at any time throughout the academic year, with all annual memberships expiring at the end of the academic year (31st July). For Societies the total membership cost will ensure your society membership until this date, and may cover for example the use of facilities, equipment, and trip and transport costs. However, this is subject to each groups budget.

To join a Sports Club, you are only expected to pay one instalment of £40 to access any club. This money is paid directly into the Students’ Union and goes straight back into funding club activities. Anyone who has paid this sports fee is also eligible to play for any BUCS team. If a student would like to join a sports club that has a paid coach, there will be an additional coaching fee that needs paying (between £20 & £40).

Every membership will have a 50p transaction fee implemented by our website provider. The 50p will be added on to every membership price and you will pay it when you buy your membership, (for example, a society membership may be £10 for the year, but will appear as £10.50 with the transaction fee added).

You must be a current student at the University of Huddersfield to be eligible to join student groups. Students’ Union membership is completely free and you can choose to join or leave at any time through your University enrolment.  Other eligible parties (for example alumni) will need to purchase a Lifetime Membership before they can join Sports Clubs and Societies. More information about this can be found here:
