Life at NWRC is about so much more than just studying. It is also about broadening your horizons by embracing new experiences and building friendships right across the College.
Our Students’ Union is made up of students of varying courses, age and gender, who support the general welfare of all students. It is the main channel of communication between students and College management and organises a range of events and societies for students throughout the year. A Students’ Union President and class representatives are elected at the beginning of each academic year.
The Students’ Union helps to organise Clubs & Societies, Freshers’ Week, student socials, fundraising, European travel, external collaboration, sporting and Team Building activities.
Union members also enjoy NUS-USI benefits such as travel and shopping discounts.
Clubs and Societies
