For students, by students
We have an active students’ association (SAUWS), which also runs a vibrant and diverse calendar of social events for all students during term-time.
SAUWS currently has 25 societies representing courses including Chemical Engineering, Midwifery and Zoology societies, to cultural, interest and faith-based societies.
University sport is very important to us. We are continually investing in indoor and outdoor facilities and equipment to promote new facilities and equipment, develop new and stronger clubs and respond to demand from our students.
Our sports union has 20 sports clubs ranging from keep-fit clubs to individual and team sports including athletics, cycling, golf, rugby and snow sports.
Our varsity teams regularly compete with our east-coast rival – Edinburgh Napier University – and our students are successful in Scottish (Scottish Student Sport) and UK (British Universities & Colleges Sport) events.
Whatever your interest, joining our sports clubs and societies is a great way to meet other students and develop your extra-curricular interests.
