The Student Union is committed to helping you achieve your full potential and accomplish your goals. We are here to support you, represent you, and make your time here a truly rewarding experience that stays with you for life.

Getting involved is easy – our friendly Student Union works closely with the Student Experience Officer to offer you opportunities to get involved with fundraising, volunteering, sport or entertainment. The Student Union also works hard to make sure you are supported in terms of welfare, advice and representation.

The SU is affiliated with the National Union of Students (NUS) and membership will provide you with some great discounts – on leisure activities, eating out, fashion, and travel to name a few!

There are lots of ways for your voice to be heard at HCA, including regular drop-in sessions, student representatives, elected SU Officers, student-staff forums, and a college-level student governor to represent you. We encourage an open dialogue between students, and between students and staff. Visit our Student Voice page for more info.

There are lots of social events that take place throughout the year for HE students, such as Freshers’ Week, Halloween parties, Christmas markets, a winter ball and an end of term summer term celebration!

So whether you’re looking for fun, or fundraising for good causes, if you’re interested in volunteering or getting vocal on student issues, socialising or sport; there are plenty of opportunities waiting for you.
