Clubs and societies

There's more to being a student than just classes and assignments. Joining a club (or creating a new one) is a great way to meet like-minded people, explore your favourite hobby or sport (or learn a new one), be part of regular social activities and even add some extra spice to your CV. Student clubs are facilitated by the Swinburne Student Amenities Association, while faculties and Swinburne Student Union run some groups of their own.

Clubs fall into one of the following categories:

  • academic
  • cultural
  • spiritual
  • social
  • service/social justice
  • political
  • sport
  • student union groups
  • faculty groups.
