As Students' Union (SU) President, and on behalf of the whole SU body, I would like to welcome you to Writtle University College.
We have a lovely green campus within a 220 hectare estate in the heart of the Essex countryside, just 30 minutes from London. Writtle University College is a small and specialised place, which gives you the opportunity to work closely with the lectures.
Here you are not just a number; you are an individual who gets support and feedback. We have a friendly atmosphere where students and staff aim to make your life here at Writtle as enjoyable and as successful as possible.
The SU are a passionate group of people dedicated to improve your student experience. Every student is a member of the SU and we aim to create a lasting, positive contribution to your lives and to your time at Writtle by holding various events throughout the year, like the Freshers' Ball, Christmas Ball, Summer Ball and theme nights.
We also run successful sports teams including rugby, football, futsal, netball, hockey, equestrian and shooting. Students are encouraged to take part. If you can't find a team or social society that interests you, then we will support you in starting one!
The SU works close with staff to raise issues and to improve resources and facilities. We will provide academic, representation and welfare support throughout the year in case you should have any issues with student life.
Your time at University and College is often said to be the best years of your life. Studying at Writtle will stand you in good stead for your future life, providing fond memories, close friends and an academic qualification from a well-respected and known education provider. Studying here will push you towards a good career, or even progress you to a higher level qualification.
I hope this gives you a brief insight into life here at Writtle. I very much look forward to meeting you in the near future and wish you the very best of luck in your studies.
Students' Union President
June 2016 – May 2017
