The Clubs & Societies Programme is co-ordinated and delivered by the Students’ Union at LYIT. Registration and funding of Clubs & Societies is decided by two committees who are both made up of LYIT and LYITSU staff and LYITSU sabbatical officers.
Students have the opportunity to set up a new club or society at the beginning of each academic year. Students can then sign up to the various clubs and societies on offer during Fresher’s Week. There is another opportunity in semester 2 during RAG Week for students who wish to set up a new club or society and also a further opportunity for students to sign up to new or existing clubs or societies. There is currently no charge in operation for students to join a club or society.
The highlight of the year in the student calendar is the annual Student Achievement Awards which are usually held in early April. Scholarships and Awards are presented on the night to the most outstanding and dedicated societies and their leaders at this formal event which is held in a local hotel.
Nationally, LYITSU is an active member of BICS (Board of Irish College Societies). Each year a number of our award-winning societies and their leaders are nominated for the national awards and have been successful in a number of categories throughout the years.
