Student Groups

Start a group

Can't find a group that suits your interests, why not start your own?

In 6 simple steps your group could be up and going in no time!

  • Think of an idea for a group - something that you are passionate about, ready to commit to and that other students would want to join! Make sure that a group with a very similar name, purpose, objectives or activities does not already exist (see the list of the current Student Groups or speak with the Student Groups Support Officer).

  • Ensure you have enough members; you need a minimum of 10 currently enrolled students to establish a group. You should also consider how you may promote your group to other students in various campuses to allow for maximum reach to all students. It's important to note that the University will also ask for evidence of student membership when considering your application.

  • Our Student Groups Support Officer is here to help. Please send them an email or give them a call on (08) 8946 7678 to organise a time to catch up so they can ensure that you're on the right track to get your group up and running as soon as possible. 

  • Student groups must have a set of club rules, otherwise known as a constitution. To make it easier we have created this Template Constitution (DOCX, 499.44 KB) for you to use. The Student Groups Support Officer is available to assist you to build a constitution, please contact via email to set up a time to discuss further.

  • Before you submit your application you will need to hold a meeting to decide things such as, who will be the president, will you have a membership fee and all the other essential details for running your club. This initial meeting is also known as an inaugural general meeting (IGM). See resources for tips on how to run an IGM.
