Money for running your club or society

Detailed information about finances for clubs and societies can be found in the Society Guide. If you have any questions after reading this page and looking at the guide get in touch with the Co-President Activities & Events or the SU Finance Manager


All sports clubs and societies get a budget from SOAS SU to run your core activities. You apply for your budget at the beginning of the year as part of the registration or re-registration process. 

You can also raise money for your student group through fundraising and sponsorships - talk to us if you want more ideas or support for raising additional funding. 

We make the clubs & societies budgets available for all students to view. The spreadsheet is updated regularly, and you can see the date of the most recent update at the top right of the spreadsheet. View the spreadsheet by clicking here. Please ensure that you log-in with your SOAS email address and not your personal email address as you will not be granted access. If there any any problems with accessing the spreadsheet, or if you club or society is missing from the spreadsheet contact the SU Finance Manager

Expenses Claims

To claim money from your budget you need to complete a Claims Form (PDF or Word) and submit this to the SU Finance Manager.

The form must be signed or sent by the President, Captain or Treasurer, and you must send a receipt or invoice with the form. 

You can only claim for expenses that match up to the budget we approved, if you want to spend money in a different way you'lll need to get that approved by the Co-President Activities & Events first, otherwise we may not reimburse the payment. 

Full information on paying expenses claims is in the Society Guide.




There is a short guide below on how to read the budget spreadsheet. If you have any questions contact the SU Finance Manager
