Whatever your interests are, there is almost certainly going to be a society that appeals to you, and if not, you have the opportunity to set up your own. This is a great way to fill your time, as societies often meet during the days, evenings or weekends. In addition to this, many societies offer regular socials, which is not only a great way to meet like-minded people, but to let your hair down and relax after a hard day of studying. There are also a wide variety of sports to choose from, whether you’re interested in playing in a competitive team or just for fun. Exercise is a fantastic way of releasing stress from studying, as well as keeping you fit and healthy, so whether you’re hitting the gym or competing in a BUCS league, use your spare time to factor in some time to look after your body. You can also use your free time to explore the local area, or head a bit further afield. Check out any trips that your university may offer, and keep an eye out for cheap deals from travel providers.
