ENSA Societies

Want to join a Society? Check out our A - Z of Societies to see what's on offer and buy your memberships.

Student Societies have existed at Edinburgh Napier University since the 1970s. There has always been a diverse student population that has had equally diverse interests and hobbies. 

Student Societies are created and run by students themselves with the support of ENSA. Each Society is led by a democratically elected committee, and every Society is open to all Edinburgh Napier students. 

Why join a Society?

Well there are a number of great reasons! 

  • Meet new people – Societies are a fantastic way to meet like minded people and make new friends from a variety of backgrounds
  • Learn something new – joining a Society is a great way to develop a skill, explore your academic subject in more depth, or discover new perspectives and interests
  • Maintain a balanced lifestyle – University shouldn’t be all work and no play, joining a Society is a great way to de-stress and forget your studies for a while
  • Develop your confidence – Societies are the perfect opportunity to try something you’ve always wanted to do and throw yourself in at the deep end.
  • Improve your CV – activity in Societies, especially if you end up leading one, is a great addition to your CV and will catch the attention of employers looking for self-motivated and passionate employees
  • Career development – whether you’re networking with PhD students, meeting with industry professionals, or developing your commercial awareness, Societies can be an valuable addition to your academic course
  • Skills for life – teamwork, communication, organisation, leadership, budgeting… helping to run a Society will help you develop essential skills for the future
  • Give something back – many Societies choose to fundraise or volunteer for a local community organisation or charity
