At New College Stamford we take the views and opinions of our students very seriously. We see the benefit of allowing our learners to have an opportunity to shape the organisation in which they choose to study. Gathering feedback from our students is one of the most effective ways we can improve the College for all!
When you enrol at the College all of our students automatically become part of the Student Union. Every year an Executive Committee is elected by the entire student body to act on behalf of, and with other students in the College representation forums; such as the Student Council.
It is not all business though as the Student Union Executive Committee are also responsible for the fun stuff that goes on at College as well! Social events, trips and charity fundraising all fall under the Student Union remit so if you decide to run in the elections to become part of the Committee or not, there’s never a dull moment at New College Stamford! The Student Union Committee also manage their own budget to spend on benefitting everyone who studies at the College.
The Student Union is also affiliated with the NUS (National Union of Students) which provides Student Unions across the country with the support and training they need to become more effective at functioning on behalf of all students. This also means that all of our students are eligible to purchase the famous NUS discount card, and benefit from a HUGE range of discounts available!
