Societies for international students

The University of Manchester has students from 154 countries. This makes for an exciting and multicultural atmosphere and there are many organisations dedicated to ensuring that you make the most of your time in the UK.

The International Society

The International Society is an independent, not-for-profit organisation unique to Manchester. Based on Oxford Road it provides a social and supportive environment for all international students.

UMSU International Societies

The University of Manchester Students' Union is home to many international societies which are run by students. They allow students of similar nationalities and/or faiths to meet informally. Most societies organise events (socials) and other activities.

Athletic Union

The Athletic Union has over 40 clubs and almost 2,000 members, and students of all sporting abilities are welcome. Playing sports is one of the best ways to make the most of your time at university. It's also a good way to make friends and get fit.

Other societies

In addition to international societies, the Students' Union is home to a wide range of other social groups.
