Our Purpose

The Students' Union (NWRCSU) is YOUR Students’ Union. NWRCSU is here to make sure your time at college counts. Ensuring you feel part of the student community, supporting you to stand up for what you believe in, to speak out about the issues that matter the most to you, and helping you move forward into a bright future.

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. Student Unions are powerful organisations, but only have the ability to make changes if they have students who engage with them - so make sure you get involved. Whether
that's completing a survey, voting in the elections or standing to be one of the Student Representatives. Together students can achieve more.

Here at NWRCSU, we strive to embody our values of fun, supportiveness, positivity, innovation and inclusivity. I want to make sure all of our students get the very best out of their college experience and feel supported. So please come and say hello anytime, no appointment needed!

How do I join the Students' Union?

You automatically become a member of NWRCSU when you accept your place on your course, so you’re already part of something bigger before you even get here. There are no forms to fill out, no money to pay in advance and no membership card required.

Students' Union Council

What difference will you make?

We elect Student Officers to the NWRCSU Council. Each year, a team of students are democratically elected to lead NWRCSU, they make sure that our students are heard and have what they need to learn and thrive whilst at college. Our Student Officers work to tackle all issues to do with student life - from national campaigns, to student welfare, as well as making sure the Students' Union offers what you want it to!

The Students’ Union 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

    Anyone 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.

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!
