When you first embark on a university degree, there are so many things to consider (eg, new place, new friends and getting to grips with the course) that the last thing on your mind might be adding to that list and getting involved in a student society. But most UK universities now have an extensive list of societies that welcome newcomers, and it is well worth trying to get involved from the offset. No matter whether you’re interested in sport, dance, film, language or radio, you can get involved with a host of groups at university. Not only can these be a fun way to relax, stay fit or make friends, they can also be invaluable as a discussion point in legal interviews.
I know that the main deadline for training contract applications is 31 July, but with around six weeks to go, I’ve still got loads of time left to fill out my forms, right?
