Student Discounts

The College is linked to the National Union of Students, which means you can get the NUS Totum Card – giving you access to loads of savings on the high street and online. For more info and to purchase your card (£14.99 for 12 months) see:

Student Clubs & Events

Last year, student-run clubs and events included:

  • An LGBTQ+ Club
  • A Gaming Club
  • A Vegan Society
  • An events committee to run the end of year Summer Prom

There was also interest in Music, Yoga, a Mature Students group, and Women in Construction & Engineering. Clubs can be whatever you are interested in and give you the opportunity to meet other students across the college.

Student Services can help to set up & promote clubs, as well as finding places to meet.
