What Happens Next?

Our activities team will review your form, if they need more information you will be contacted by email and may be asked to come in for a meeting to discuss your form.

All new clubs and societies must be ratified either through Team Greenwich Executive Committee or Societies Executive Committee. These committees meet regularly and will discuss your form and make the decision on whether to approve the student group.

In the meantime please have a look at the group leader’s handbook which contains all the information you need to be a successful group leader.

If your form was successful, you will then be invited to attend training on how to run a student group which will cover the basics of finance, marketing, getting and keeping members and other useful information.

If you have any other questions please contact activities@gre.ac.uk for more information.
