The Students’ Union represents the views of all our students and is here to ensure you have a positive college experience. As well as being affiliated and supported by the National Union of Students, the Union also has good links with the University of Worcester. The Union is run by a team of elected student officers, who are responsible for organising events such as Fresher Fair and running campaigns on issues ranging from Mental Health to Global Warming. Upon enrolment all students automatically become members of the Students’ Union free of charge.
As well as representation, being a member of the Union entitles students to purchase an NUS Extra Discount card. To obtain a card or for more information about the scheme please visit: www.nus.org.uk/en/nus-extra/
Elections for each position take place in May each year and give all members of the Students’ Union the opportunity to nominate themselves to run for a position. If you think you have what it takes to lead and make a change, then get in contact with your Returning Officers using the contact details below:
