The Students' Union are here to help each and every student that studies at Writtle University College, to make the most of your time here and hopefully improve your student experience. We are an extremely enthusiastic group of volunteers and part time members of staff, who get involved with everything around college and above all else looking after your interests.
- There are on average 12 Students' Union committee members, comprising of four executive officers and approximately seven supporting officers.
- Elections for the new Students' Union members are held in the early part of semester B (approximately March time). The new members take up their roles in September after a period of shadowing the current officers in post.
Meet your Students' Union
Students' Union President
Higher Education Officer
RAG (Raise and Give) Officers
Kia Newbauld-McFarlane and Chelsea Roberston
Sam Oliver and Varian Maude
Academic Sabbatical Officer (SUASO)
My role is to ensure that you as students have your say in academic issues. It's imperative that you are involved in decision-making at Writtle University College and that any changes are communicated to you. I represent your views on various Committees and Boards in order to ensure that everyone's voice is heard. "Everyone" includes students at Further Education level right the way through to Higher Education. If you need any help academically - be it learning support, adjusting to a different style of learning or help on how to write essays - I will point you in the right direction.
We also have our Course Representatives who come under my wing and I am here to help them with training and guidance. If you wish to become a Course Rep, or want to know who yours may be, or if there are any specific academic worries you may have, then please don't hesitate to come and find me; I'll often be found within the SU office. We encourage you to talk to us and give us your views so we can represent you and help you as much as possible.
Students' Union Support Officer
I am a full-time member of the SU Council and am responsible for ensuring that all of the elected officers fulfil their roles to the best of their ability. I provide support for all aspects of student life - there are not many things that we cannot help with. In the office we have an open door policy and are always able to help with anything, however small it may be.
