Students' Association

What is the Students' Association 

The Students’ Association is the representative organisation for students within West College Scotland. It’s run by students for students and aims to maintain and improve the student experience and facilities, both within the College and on a national level through affiliated membership of the National Union of Students (NUS).

What does the Students’ Association do?

The Students' Association gives the voice to all students at all levels across the College. The aims and objectives of the Association are:

  • To advance the education and social development of its members and students of the College as a whole.
  • To represent the interests of its members and act as a channel of communication in dealing with the College and other bodies.
  • To promote and protect the welfare of its members.
  • To promote, encourage and co-ordinate student clubs, societies, sports and social activities. 
  • To provide a mechanism for liaison with other Students' Associations or Union.

Can anyone be part of the Students’ Association?

Membership of West College Scotland Students’ Association and NUS is free and automatic to individual students studying here (both full-time & part-time). Students have the right, however to opt out of membership from the Association at the start of each academic year.
