Elected tutor group representatives meet regularly and take part in department and management meetings to represent the views of students throughout the year. The Student Council and other groups organise events which reflect the needs and interests of all students. The council also works closely with college staff to make Regent College a better place for students. Student governors ensure the student voice is heard at all levels within the college. Youth workers support students’ involvement in college life and work with them to respond to students' needs to further improve college provision.
Regent College is affiliated to the National Union of Students and all students can get an NUS card which gives a range of discounts in shops and access to social events and facilities at local universities.
How does it work?
The College is split into 3 divisions
MIS - Maths, ICT and Science
SHAPS - Society, Health and Professional Studies
ACE - Arts, Culture and English
Students are allocated to a Division and within that Division they are allocated to a Tutor Group. Each Tutor Group (of which there are about 60) elects two Tutor Group representatives. Each Division holds meetings at least 6 times a year and all of the Division's Tutor Group representatives are supposed to attend.
Each Division elects 3 representatives to the Student Council. The Student Council represents all students - from all Divisions and meets weekly. The Student Council invites members of staff to its meetings as required.
There are 2 student governors, one is elected from the Student Council, the other Student Governor can be any student who attends the College - as long as they are elected by the students.
