The role of the Student Council

Each year, a team of students are democratically elected to lead the NWRC Student Union Council. They make sure that our students are heard and have what they need to learn and thrive whilst at college. They keep in touch with your views and meet with the senior leadership of the college to share what students want and need to have a great student experience at NWRC.

They work to tackle all issues relating to student life - from national campaigns, to student welfare, to things you want to change on your course, as well as making sure the Students' Union offers what you want it to.

Our Student Council represents you and your views in a host of different ways, on issues ranging from social experience to academic quality, to liberation and much more.
