Every campus has a team of elected students who work hard all year round on your behalf, from organising parties, to running campaigns and arranging volunteering opportunities including helping young people in Kenya.
You can get involved in a huge range of activities and have the power to determine what happens on campus. We go on college trips that students pick to help enhance your student experience and we raise money for charities.
