Stu­dent Union

We encour­age our stu­dents to dive in and take an active role in shap­ing their stu­dent experience.

There are plen­ty of oppor­tu­ni­ties to get involved in stu­dent life out­side of the class­room, with all sorts of hands-on expe­ri­ences to explore. 

The HE Stu­dent Union is run by stu­dents for stu­dents, aspir­ing to ensure that all mem­bers get the most from their total stu­dent experience. 

The Stu­dents’ Union offers you the chance to take part in numer­ous events and activ­i­ties through­out the year.

If there is an activ­i­ty you are par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est­ed in, they can also set up a club or soci­ety, so you can take part on a reg­u­lar basis. 

The SU seek to:

  • Pro­vide advice and rep­re­sen­ta­tion for all stu­dents through Learn­er Voice and stu­dent lead campaigns
  • Co-ordi­nate a range of vibrant enrich­ing and enter­tain­ing social activities
  • Pro­vide oppor­tu­ni­ties for per­son­al growth and development

Through these goals, Not­ting­ham Col­lege Stu­dents’ Union will always seek to pro­mote a bet­ter qual­i­ty of stu­dent life. 

Learner Voice

Nottingham College SU is primarily run to ensure that the voice of learners is heard by senior college staff, your lecturers and the local community. Learner Voice is a key mechanism for gathering feedback from our students, allowing us to continually improve your experience here.

Learner Voice representatives meet on a regular basis to comment on the student experience and make suggestions for improvements. You'll have an opportunity to express your views and have your say. 


Students on our full-time higher education courses have access to a wide selection of free sports sessions and sports teams, that are available as part of the Nottingham College sport programme. They are a great way to meet new people and develop new skills in the process. 

We run competitive football and basketball teams that play in the AoC Sport league on a Wednesday afternoon. There are also six week taster sessions, as well as a range of sports that run all year round including golf, crickets, badminton, ice skating and many more. 


Volunteering is a great way to boost your CV, meet new people and feel great about helping others. You can get involved in community opportunities listed on our pages or through Nottingham Trent Students' Union by enrolling on their volunteer programme.
