Student Union

Every year, a Student Union is elected by the students to act as a voice of the wider College community.


As a team, they:

  • Play a vital role in representing and communicating the views of students to College management and governors
  • Provide advice and information to students
  • Organise social and fundraising activities
  • Raise awareness of local, regional and national issues

Our primary agenda as a union is to make the College more ‘green’, raise money for local charities here in Portsmouth and make sure every student is heard. We will actively push new ideas forward and work closely with the College’s senior management to enhance student life, not only for the current cohort, but for the future generation of students.” – Hannah Arnott, Student Union President 2019/20

We annually recruit a new Student Union to represent the student body so if you think you could be our next President, Secretary or perhaps a Communications Officer then look out for election time at the start of the academic year.
