Student Union

The College is affiliated to the National Union of Students (NUS), and all students aged 16 or over automatically become members of both, at no financial cost, unless they wish to exercise their right to opt-out.

Students under the age of 16 or those who exercise the right to opt out do not have voting rights in the Student Union Council (Student Executive) elections but will not be unfairly disadvantaged in accessing any services provided by the Student Union Council.


TOTUM, the new name for the NUS extra card, brings you over 200 UK student discounts and comes with 1-year FREE ISIC unlocking over 42,000 international discounts.

A one-year card costs just £14.99! A full list of discounts can be found at:
