Claim your points

All societies have the opportunity to earn a ‘block grant’ for the following academic year. This is money paid directly into your society account and is your core funding for the year – we call this Tier funding. Simply put, we operate a tiered system to reward and incentivise your activity throughout the year. You must achieve Copper status to be an affiliated society; this is done through completing the compulsory paperwork and by having an active committee. Many societies choose to push on to Bronze or above status and can do this through our points system.

Your society will have 2 opportunities in the year to claim your points by filling out an online form. The Societies Team will send out a link for you to access the form within a 4 week period. Evidence can be attached in jpeg, pdf, doc or png format.

Please note that some criteria will be monitored by staff and therefore do not require evidence submitting.


The next window to claim your points will open in March
