Overview

Clubs

With the excellent sports facilities available at ITB, the level of student participation and club membership has increased each year. We look forward to a successful year for all our clubs, many of which will be competing at intervarsity level.

Societies

Involvement in societies is a great way to meeting new people while developing more interests. A number of societies are already established in ITB, and there's always room for more!

Our Student Union offers assistance to students interested in establishing new societies so please get in touch with them if you have any new ideas.

What our students say...

Lisa Kelly

"On the course, everything is like really different and you think it's going to be really hard, but the resources that are available to you are really great. Like the maths teacher has a website for maths, and like that's grand and the way things are taught, it’s not the same all the time."
