Students Union

The Students’ Union exists to promote the general welfare of all students; encourage student societies, sports and social activities; and act as a channel of communication between students and managers of the College and other bodies.

Membership is open to all North West Regional College students, who are encouraged to take a responsible part in arranging the Union programme and to support its activities. Students’ Union members enjoy USIT benefits, such as travel etc. Class representatives are elected at the beginning of each session.

Our Students’ Union President: Sarah Curran

Sarah is the Student Governor representative on the Governing Body. She was previously a sabbatical officer at Ulster University, serving as the Vice President of Campaigns and Communications.

Following her completion of a BA Hons in Journalism with English at the University of Ulster in 2014, Sarah continued her education journey with NWRC.  She is currently studying a Post – Graduate Diploma in Professional Journalism (NCTJ Accredited).

Sarah is a big advocate of Student Welfare and hopes that she can use her experiences as a union member to express this.

NUS-USI President: Fergal McFerran

Hi everyone,

If you’re reading this, you must be considering applying to study at North West Regional College, which is really exciting!

My name is Fergal McFerran and I am the current President of NUS-USI, working to represent students in higher and further education right across Northern Ireland.

My job as President is to work with students’ unions across all of Northern Ireland’s universities and colleges – this includes North West Regional College Students’ Union, to make sure that the voices of students are heard in politics and in wider society.

As a prospective student you’ll likely be focusing on what course you want to do, and the kind of job you might want to go into once you’ve finished your course. But there’s much more to think about when you’re making decisions about your future. North West Regional College has a strong sense of community and the Students’ Union at NWRC has thrived over the last few years to help build a hub of activity for the student body. The reason we’re telling you this is because there’ll always be a space for new students to get involved in the students’ union, to support it, to meet new people and to help deliver positive changes for classmates at college.

NUS-USI is here to work with your students’ union and to support them along the way. So if you decide that NWRC is where your future lies make sure to challenge yourself, put yourself forward to stand for election to be a class rep, or a students’ union officer, get involved in a club or society and immerse yourself in everything that college life has to offer.

As a student, a volunteer, a rep in my own students’ union and now as President of NUS-USI, I have come to value the impact of students coming together. NUS-USI aims to provide students’ union officers and reps with knowledge, skills and advice to enable us all to come together as a movement.

So whatever you decide to study, and wherever you choose to study it, welcome to the Student Movement!

Fergal McFerran
