Subject societies

Our student-led societies support debate, creativity and fun across the range of our subjects

Encouraging your intellectual creativity to blossom

Girton believes that one of the treasures of a Cambridge education is to engage with your subject beyond the confines of supervisions and lectures. We therefore provide every opportunity to our students to enter into a range of activities with peers and leading scholars, allowing for much broader intellectual exploration and enjoyment.

Our subject societies are an exciting way in which this broader engagement happens. You will find them across the range of disciplines, holding regular events with high profile guests and speakers, providing networking opportunities, a forum for students across year groups to share ideas and experiences, and much more.
