About Us

Your Student Union

What’s the SU all about?

Every college must have a Student Union because without the students being represented, a University is not allowed to be a University. Basically, it is our job to do 3 things:

  1. Represent the students’ interests both within college and outside.
  2. Organise social activites throughout the year.
  3. Provide funding to the various clubs and societies

How do we work?

The SU is divided into two parts; the elected council committee and the non-elected council committee. The elected council is made up of people who were voted into their positions in the previous year whilst the ‘non-elected’ is made up of people such as Year Reps, etc! 

How do I get involved?

As a student at the RVC you are able to run for any position in the Student Union! Elections are held every May, and your position runs from August-July. There is also the opportunity to be a Year Rep, and help the SU keep on top of what students want from the RVC! These are voted in by their year during the first few weeks of first term!
