How the SU Helps You

The Union is here to help students by representing their views and supporting them in disciplinary procedures.

Governor Representation

SU Governors get to attend management meetings and give their perspective on College matters.

We believe that all students deserve the chance to have their views considered, when decisions are being made about how the College is run. If you have an idea of how to improve life at College you can talk to your local SU rep and they will raise it on your behalf.

Disciplinary Support

If you are involved in the disciplinary process, the Students’ Union (SU) can support you.

Come and talk to an SU rep, or a member of the Student Life team.
