When you become a Student at Richmond upon Thames College you automatically become part of our Student Union. This is part of the National Union of Students (NUS), which is a confederation of students' unions in the United Kingdom.
You can choose how involved in the Student Union you want to be. You may just want to make the most of the perks like the student discount card, TOTUM, which you can find out more and apply for here. Or maybe you want to have your voice heard and represent your class by volunteering to be Class Representative as part of the Student's Voice. You may want to take this a step further and run for a position on our Student Union Executive Committee.
Student Union Executive Committee
The Student Union Executive Committee is comprised of eight students who are democratically elected by the student body each March. Any student who has good attendance, behaviour and punctuality may stand for election.
The SU manage a budget, liaise with college staff on behalf of students, represent students' views at meetings, plan events and activities, support enrichment activities, and promote Learner Voice across college. They have an office where students can drop in during lunchtimes to discuss ideas, concerns or queries. Elections for new officers take place every year during the Summer Term.
