What is Give it a Go?• Give it a Go is an activities programme full of one off taster sessions, courses and day trips - we have been running for over 17 years! • All Give it a Go activities are run at a basic introductory level and any session you run should be suitable for beginners• The aim of Give it a Go is to enable students to try something new for the first time and make friends• Our workshops provide opportunities to learn new skills, hobbies or experiences
Give it a Go is a great way for your Club/Society to gain new members (our Intro programme is given to every student living in University managed accommodation). And it is a fantastic way to make some money for your Student Group, last year over £23,000 worth of ticket income was given out to Clubs and Societies!
We are one of the strongest brands in the Students' Union, and it is a fantastic way to advertise your club or society to new and existing students.
Submissions are now open for our Intro and Autumn Give it a Go Programmes. The Intro Programme runs from Monday 23 September to Sunday 6 October, and the Autumn programme runs from Monday 7 October until Friday 20 December. You can run as little or as many Give it a Go sessions as you would like.
In order to book in your Give it a Go session, you will need to complete this form. If you would like to run several different sessions, you will have to submit one form for each session – you don’t need to do this if it’s the same activity but over different dates, just pop the various dates on the form.
All Give it a Go activities are run at a basic introductory level and should be suitable for beginners. Please remember that you should run workshops which link to your activities. For example, society led Give it a Go sessions should relate to your society activity, you should run an event in what you are experts in. Societies are not eligible to run Give it a Go Sports activities, cooking classes or day trips.* some exceptions apply.
