Due to the current University IT issues, we are unable to process memberships and payments in the usual way. In the meantime, you can sign-up to any society for FREE at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/nsusocietymemberships.
This gives you the chance to attend taster sessions for any of the groups which interest you. Once the membership system is working, we will inform students and set a deadline for the purchase of society memberships should you still wish to be involved and receive the benefits of membership.
Please note the Virtual Fair from Weds 23rd required you to use a gmail account to log in and see what societies and sports clubs have to offer but you can use any email account to sign up to NSU societies through our website.
Please do not purchase memberships through guest accounts or if your normal log in works [for returning students]. We cannot be certain all information will pull through our system as it normally would and this may lead to issues later in the term.
We are Project ICE - IT Classes for Elders and we are looking for volunteers to help senior citizens in the community learn about technology and we need your help!
Highly recommended society of the year 2019 by NSU, runners-up in the National Societies Awards 2019, and "Society of the Month" in 2018, we have also been recognised externally by Go On UK Digital Skills, Digital Leaders Top 100 List, and Truth about Youth PoSBO.
Working alongside the Elders Council of Newcastle, we meet once a week for 2 hours to help older people get the best out of their technology.
This project will hone and showcase your patience, active listening, and extend your abilities to explain IT concepts in simple and understandable terms to those who may have never used a phone before. (All of these skills can benefit your CV too!)
Every session is different, and you could be teaching anything from downloading music, setting up skype, using the internet, or editing poetry!
You don't need to be a computer expert to join the project - you know how things work already!
