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 submitting evidence at certain deadlines or through our Claim Your Points system.

Your society will have 2 opportunities in the year to ClaimYourPoints by filling out an online form.

15 Dec- 12 Jan

23 Feb- 23 March

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 any other criteria that are not on the list below are either monitored by Staff or have seperate deadlines and therefore are not included in ClaimYourPoints. See Society Tier Funding Grant Criteria for more guidance.
