Welcome to your Student Union

Run for students by students, the East Surrey College Student Union is here to represent the student voice in the College.

The Student Union (SU) serves as a channel of communication between the student body and the College Senior Leadership Team. This helps evolve the College experience for all, ensuring students' views and opinions are included every step of the way. The SU also supports the local community through the voluntary work they do and the causes they support.
