The Student Forum is open to all students and provides an opportunity to share your views about your course and life as a student within the college. In addition, each tutor group elects a Tutor Representative to attend the forum to feedback opinions raised in tutorials.
The Student Council is a smaller group of students who take the views from the Student Forum, investigate the options and action accordingly.

There are only two Governor positions available which are hotly contested and elected by the students of the college.
