The Students’ Union represents the views of all our students and is here to ensure you have a positive college experience. As well as being affiliated and supported by the National Union of Students, the Union also has good links with the University of Worcester. The Union is run by a team of elected student officers, who are responsible for organising events such as Fresher Fair and running campaigns on issues ranging from Mental Health to Global Warming. Upon enrolment all students automatically become members of the Students’ Union free of charge.
As well as representation, being a member of the Union entitles students to purchase an NUS Extra Discount card. To obtain a card or for more information about the scheme please visit: www.nus.org.uk/en/nus-extra/
Elections for each position take place in May each year and give all members of the Students’ Union the opportunity to nominate themselves to run for a position. If you think you have what it takes to lead and make a change, then get in contact with your Returning Officers using the contact details below:

James Fuller; Student President for Worcester and Malvern
James is currently studying Level 3 Engineering at Heart of Worcestershire College as it was a subject that really excited and challenged him. He liked the look of the course as it gave him opportunities to put into practise his skills in problem solving that he had learnt through extra-curricular activities connected to the forces. On completion of his course he would like to progress into the Engineering industry to further challenge himself and to continue is personal development
'I have had a good experience here at College and want to give my fellow student a chance to have the positive experience I have had. I want to give them the chance to try new things, making college a place not just where you go for an education but somewhere you go for personal development, socialise and get involved with extracurricular activities.'
