The Union of UEA Students allows students to set up their own societies on campus and the largest and longest-running are the UEA Music Society and UEA Live Music Society. Both of these groups are important partners in music making at UEA and are open to all. As well as these, over the years the student body have set up the UEA Electronic Music Society and the Glee Showchoir, all of which provide opportunities for students to make music and enjoy themselves.
Newly established in the 2016/17 academic year was the UEA Songwriters' Society, which got off to a prosperous start last year.
Details of all of the societies can be found to the left.
