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 prime statement as a union is that we want to let the students know that we are here to represent you and your views. 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.” – George Pearcey, Student Union President 2018/19
This year, our Student Union team have decided that their chosen charity will be The Elizabeth Foundation based at QA Hospital, which is a national charity supporting infants and pre-school children with hearing loss. Throughout the year, there will be numerous fundraising activities and events to get involved with.
