    Hi, I am applying to manchester this year and just wanted to know a few things about clubs and societies. How many clubs and societies should someone join so that its enough to have fun and make friends but not too much that it affects work. Also I saw a lot of sports clubs are available to join at Manchester uni but I wanted to know if its normal for freshers to join a completely new sport that they've never tried before. eg. I haven't done swimming since year 8 or 9 but could I join the swimming club at Manchester or would I look like an idiot because everyone else would have had lots of swimming experience.thanks

    Hi, you can join as many societies as you wish, including sport societies and teams. If you don't find what you're looking for you can always start your own! You can find the full list of societies here: http://manchesterstudentsunion.com/g...ub-society#all
    Joining societies enhances your university experience and allows for you to meet new people, so don't be afraid to try something new. In terms of swimming society in particular, they have a competitive and recreational team so you can join whichever according to your abilities.

    Hope this helps!

    Best wishes,
    Sophie
