Student Union

Here at York College & University Centre, we believe it’s important to ensure our students have a voice and are listened to and heard.

Our Student Union ensures the student body and the College work collaboratively together to increase student wellbeing and satisfaction, embracing student advocacy to implement positive change.

The Student Union is made up of the following:

Student Union President
Student Union Vice President
Student Union Officers
Student Union Representatives
Student Union Members

The President, Vice President and Officer roles are elected by the Student Union membership, ensuring the Union is a group run by the students, for the students.

The Student Union is open to all students, and it's important to both the College and members to have a range of different students, regardless of age or programme of study.

Student Union Priorities

Student Voice - to clearly advocate for the needs of all students, which can and will benefit the whole College community. We believe that every individual student has a contribution to make to the College, for our peers and an improved student journey. The Student Union aims to gather the unique perspective of students, into a collective mechanism for growth, change and development of the student experience.

Personal Development Opportunities - to increase the engagement in College-wide activities and initiatives to develop social and cultural capital.

Student Community - to foster a democratic, inclusive and diverse student community.
