Give it a Go is a programme of events, run by your Student Union and your clubs and societies to offer you the change to try a new skill, learn something new or explore an interesting destination.

We’re working hard behind the scenes on providing you with an exciting series of events. In the past we’ve taken students to Stonehenge, to Waterfall Country in rural Wales and cities like Oxford and Cambridge. We’ve even been abroad and, so far in 2022, have visited Amsterdam and Strasbourg.

Our societies have run a whole host of sessions - Dr Who tours, wild swimming, art based treasure hunts and many more and we’re excited to see what they decide to run for you this year.

We also have a massive 68 sport clubs, who will be running Give it a Go taster sessions to help you decide which sport is for you.

Events will be released closer to Freshers, so make sure to re-visit this page. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please email giveitago@cardiff.ac.uk
