As soon as students start with us, they are automatically enrolled as a member of our Students' Union. The Union is home to more than 200 societies and over 70 sports clubs, as well as student media groups, student-run services and student Networks. So, there’s guaranteed to be something for everyone.
There are almost 50 international and cultural societies bringing together students from all around the world, plus a range of societies with more of an economics focus, examples of which can be found below.
Nottingham Economics and Finance Society
With over 1,200 members, the Nottingham Economics and Finance Society is one of the biggest societies on campus.
Economics students have their membership paid for by the school, benefitting from:
- careers advice and support
- links to leading organisations, with presentations, workshops and networking events
- social events, with discounts at bars, restaurants and clubs
- sporting opportunities including football, basketball and netball teams
Philosophy, Politics and Economics Society
The Philosophy, Politics and Economics Society is designed for students studying these three distinct disciplines - together as part of our joint honours degree or separately.
Students who are interested in any of the disciplines, including their intersection, are also very welcome - so you don't necessarily need to be studying any of these subjects to join.
Members will enjoy:
- social events
- mentoring scheme
- speaker events related to members' interests
The society also acts as a forum to answer any questions that may arise during your time at University, whether they are educational or social.
Behavioural Insights Society
Are you curious about people and how insights into the way we think, behave and make decisions can be applied to real-world problems?
The Behavioural Insights Society is the university’s first student-led society focused on better understanding behavioural science and how to apply it to the real world.
The society welcomes students from all backgrounds who share their interest in psychology, behavioural economics, public policy and more. Whether you are new to Behavioural Science or want to apply your existing knowledge, this society is for you.

The Green Economy Society aims to educate on sustainable economics, finance and innovation.
They host guest talks and workshops from prominent professionals and companies and run the Sustainable Business Review magazine, the UK's first student run sustainability focused magazine.
