Student life

You'll never be bored

At the Dyson Institute, you’ll never be bored. A whole series of social activities are organised by the Undergraduate Experience Committee, like go-karting, cookery classes with Joe Croan (our formidable head chef, who was trained by the Michelin-starred Marco Pierre White), ice skating, cheering on Bath Rugby, and much more. There are numerous clubs and societies to get involved with – within the Dyson Institute, the wider Dyson community or the local community. There’s also the famous Dyson Christmas Party and Summer Fete.

The UEC Social Budget enables the social team to organise events, provide a free fortnightly coach service to Bath or Bristol for the evening, and even support an annual ski trip. And this is all on top of the bars, cafés, shops, music and events in nearby Bristol, Bath, Gloucester, and the numerous Cotswold towns that surround us.

Some of the current clubs and societies include:

  • The Walking Group
  • Art Club
  • Dive Club
  • Classic & Retro Car Club
  • Games Club
  • Gardening Gang
  • Big Band
  • SailSoc
  • surfwest
  • Umbrella Society (with a diversity focus)
  • Ice Skating
