LMC Students' Union
Welcome to LMC SU
LMCSU would like to welcome you to our Students’ Union. On this page you can find out a little more about us, what we can do for you and, if you are up for it, what you can do for yourself, us and the College. All students at LMC (full-time and part-time and based in the work place) are automatic members of the Students' Union. The Students' Union is run by the Students’ Union Executive Committee and supported by the Student Liaison Officer and we are part of the National Union of Students (NUS).
What does LMCSU do?
Your Students' Union is made up of the Exec team who are elected by you every year and run the SU on your behalf. We aim to:
Represent what students think
Students receive training and support to become a student rep, elected officer and/or student governor. They help to improve the student experience by representing what students think about their course and the college as a whole. College managers and staff then respond to the SU and Student Council and many improvements have happened as a result.
Run student activities
A variety of student-run activities take place throughout the year. Students can organise or help promote events, set up their own, or join existing clubs and societies.
Promote student welfare
The Students' Union supports students in organising campaigns and awareness-raising events for example, LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual) events that promote equal opportunities. We also work with College managers and other staff to run cross College events
What is the NUS?
The National Union of Students (NUS) is a voluntary membership organisation which makes a real difference to the lives of students and its member students' unions. We are a confederation of 600 students' unions, amounting to more than 95 percent of all higher and further education unions in the UK. Through our member students' unions, we represent the interests of more than seven million students.
