Student Involvement and Student Union
Student Involvement and Activities
Student involvement is at the heart of East Coast College. Students are encouraged to get involved in the college community on a daily basis through various opportunities such as:
- Student voice forums and activities
- Student vacancies (Student Union, Student Ambassadors, Student Governor, Course Representatives and Student Volunteers)
- ‘Give it a Go!’ Programme
- You said, we did
- Attending college meetings, influencing the development and running of the college.
The Student Union gives students the opportunity to influence decisions that affect them. It is run by students, for students and has a direct voice to the college leaders on behalf of the student body.
The Student Union are encouraged to contribute at all levels of college life from sitting on committees e.g. the Academic and Governors Boards to organising events, developing the curriculum and attending conferences. Elections for the SU committee are held every year.
