The NWRCSU is your opportunity to get involved, share ideas and make a difference.

Students work in collaboration with staff to improve student life at the college.

The Union is supported by a staff member from the Student Services team who has dedicated time to support Union development and activities. The staff member oversees the election processes to ensure sound governance and democracy. We are here to improve the lives of students.

You don’t have to join, you’re already in!
Every student enrolled at NWRC is automatically a member of the Students’ Union. The Students’ Union represents all students on all campuses and with the help of the Student Council represents the wider student voice.

Student Union

The Student Council is here to:

  • Promote the general welfare of all students
  • Encourage student societies, sports clubs and social activities
  • Act as a channel of communication between students and the College
  • Promote the interests of all students and to represent them in all matters affecting their interests
  • Enhance the standing of students in the local community

You can run for election, become part of the Student Council and help provide a “voice” for students!

The Students’ Union Council is made up of 14 Cross-College elected Student Officers who have varied responsibilities in the day-to-day running of the Union.

College students can be elected to the following roles: Student Governor, President, Entertainment Officer, Welfare Officer, Part-time student officer, LGBT Officer, Secretary, Disability Officer and Women’s Officer. The Student Governor sits on the Board of Governors which means the student perspective is included in any major decision making within the College.

Students from across all five campuses are encouraged to get involved with the Union body to organise events, support campaigns, trips and fund-raisers. It is an incredibly important team and we want you to get on board!

The Student Council helps to organise:

  • Union Clubs & Societies
  • Freshers’ Week
  • Student Socials
  • Fundraising
  • European Travel
  • External Collaboration
  • Sporting Activity
  • Team Building
