Clubs and Societies Membership Fund

The Clubs and Societies Membership Fund exists to help Plus Programme students access the full range of Clubs and Societies at Leeds University Union.

As long as you meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply to have some of the membership fee for clubs and societies reimbursed. You will be required to pay the first £20 of membership fees, then a successful application to the fund will see any remaining fees over £20 reimbursed. For example, if your membership fee is £30, a successful application will result in £10 being reimbursed to you.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • You must be registered on the Plus Programme, or eligible to join. 
  • The membership fee for the club or society must be over £20
  • The membership fee must be for a one year period only.
