When you enrol you're automatically part of the Student Union (SU). As well as organising fun events and activities, one of the elements is to ensure that your voices are heard on your course.
Student reps are nominated and pass on your feedback in order to make the college life even better.
Once a year the SU also runs a campaign to elect executive members including President, Vice President, Secretary and Campus Officers for each campus.
