Student Union

As a student of Petroc, you are automatically also a member of the Student Union.

The Union is run by students to support other students with all aspects of college life including clubs, social and fundraising events.

The Petroc Student Union, or ‘PSU’, is run by an Executive Committee of elected students who are here to implement new ideas, support student-led activities, and represent your voice. Each student on the committee has a different role, but together with our members are a Union of Students where individuals connect, have fun, build communities, share experiences, and make change.

The Union is here to make sure every Petroc student has the best student experience possible. So, keep up your hobbies or try something completely new. There’s always something social going on here at PSU such as Film Fridays, LGBT+ discussion group, inspirational talks, sports clubs, debating groups, and much more!

Being part of the Executive Committee is an excellent experience and will certainly help to enhance your CV. It is also a chance to get more involved with college life and make a difference for your fellow students.

There are elections to fill vacancies on the Executive Committee in September/October and in February/March – look out for posters and newsletters around college for more details. Visit the Student Union Facebook page or email to find out more!
