Our busy and vibrant Student Union is at the heart of college life
Run by the students for the students, we work hard to make sure you are represented at every level of your learner journey through focus groups, forums and regular meetings with the senior management team.
We also want to make sure you have a great college experience outside of the classroom so you will find a full and varied social calendar with a range of clubs, events, projects and activities. We welcome new ideas too, and pride ourselves on our events being student lead and initiated.
