I instantly felt at home. I am very keen on theatre and the student theatre society has become a second family. The courses I take are interesting and there is so much support available. I was terrified before I started and now I secretly wish I didn't have to come home over summer!

Take a look at some of our Club's and Societies
The Adam Smith Economics Society is a student-run society with the aim of bringing together students from across all departments that share a common interest in Economics.
GURWES aims to provide a platform for students to explore and discuss alternative approaches to economics. We do this through hosting guest lectures, having workshops and reading groups, and providing tutorial sessions for students alongside other means. We also continue to campaign for a reform of economics curricula, both at the local level and as part of the national and international movements for pluralism.
Established in 2014 in partnership with The Marketing Society Scotland the SMS has the primary aim of providing a platform where students can gain a better insight into the world of marketing. Over the past year we have collaborated with a number of established companies throughout Scotland including Tennent’s, Material Group, and Digital Impact. Members have the opportunity to attend seminars, networking events, workshops and dinners.
The UofG Business Club is a student-run organisation which provides activities for Business School students as well as anyone else that wants to be involved.
