We have lots of ways for you to have your say about college life. We encourage students to become Learner Representatives for their course, offering a chance to share views and ideas with fellow students and the Head of College. We take part in the BIG Teaching and Learning Survey every year and all the results are shared with students. We also conduct a number of focus groups across the academic year where we ask for students views. You might even be inspired to run for student governor.
