As a college, everything we do is done with you in mind, and we value working together with our students to develop an enjoyable and successful college environment.
Northampton College Students' Union (NCSU)
The Northampton College Students’ Union (NCSU) are a group of students who act on the opinions of their peers, organise events and run campaigns. Every student automatically becomes a member of the NCSU when they join us.
The NCSU is made up of two Student Officers; the Student President & Governor and the Student Vice President & Governor. These Student Officers also join the Board of Governors, representing the College at Corporation level.
Each role has its own responsibilities and is supported by the Enrichment Liaison Officer. Any student may stand for election as a President or Vice President.
The NCSU has its own office at Booth Lane (G2.08), where you can pop in and talk to the Union’s officers about any issues you’d like to raise.
We also have a college-wide Student Parliament, which is made up from student representatives from across the student population.
We encourage students to develop and practice leadership skills in preparation for the challenges of today’s world, and there are many opportunities available to do so.
As a Student Ambassador, you will be expected to:
Attend open events, meeting with prospective students and their parents
Take part in various focus groups with different departments in the college
Assist with college visitors as and when required.
Assist the Student Union with Charity events.
Student Ambassadors are rewarded after taking part in three of the above activities – the more you take part, the more rewards you will receive.
National Union of Students
NCSU works alongside the National Union of Students (NUS) in the interests of students at Northampton College. The NUS represents over 7 million students within over 600 Students’ Unions across the country.
Students at Northampton College are eligible to buy an TOTUM card for £14.99 that saves you money by giving you discounts on over 100 brands.
