The Student Experience

Do Something Exciting

Playing an active part in Life at RGU is great for your development, boosts your CV, plus you can meet new people and have a lot of fun too.

Here are some of the exciting things you can do while you are a student at RGU. 


If you’re looking for a fun way to boost your CV and gain invaluable experience, why not try volunteering!

From skydiving and sports coaching to youth work and fundraising, we can help find the right opportunity for you. There are lots of different ways to get involved, either in a voluntary role as part of the Union’s representative team, in the community with one of our local charity partners, or if you would rather not commit regularly you could try your hand at a one-off volunteering project.

Get involved with the Union

The Students’ Union has almost 50 different societies for you to join, from course-related groups such as Midwifery, Business, or Computing, to social groups full of people from across the university with common interests, such as gaming, film, photography or even Harry Potter! There is definitely something for everyone.

Events to suit all interests

The University hosts and promotes all kinds of events, from academic conferences to fun activities both on and off campus.


If you have an interest in presenting, producing or editing, then you’ll love our three student media outlets! RGU:Radio is the Union’s official student-run radio station, broadcasting live and on-demand from their studios on the university campus. The team at RGU:TV produce regular video content to help promote student events and raise awareness of societies, sports clubs and much more.

If writing or designing is your passion, then Radar Magazine would love to hear from you. Printed editions of the official RGU student magazine are released each term, and online articles are uploaded daily with topics covering student activities, fashion, music, food, arts, and all areas of student life. 

Raising and Giving

RGU:RAG is the charity fundraising arm of the Students’ Union. Their team organise a number of exciting charitable events throughout the year, with all proceeds going to local, national and international charities.

Students at RGU have raised well over £100,000 for countless different charities across the past few years through various different methods including bake sales, street collections, fashion shows, and they have even sent students to climb Mount Kilimanjaro!
