If you choose to study a university level course at Leicester College you can be sure your voice will be heard. There are many ways in which learners can put their points of view across.
This is a group of learners who are voted into position to form the Executive Committee. There are 24 posts which include the President, Higher Education Officer, Women’s Officer, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) Officer, Welfare Officer, International learners’ Officer etc, and all have specific roles and responsibilities.
The Student Union is run by learners, for learners, and allows you to ensure your voice is heard by the College management.
It’s not all meetings though. The Student Union also gets involved in campaigns including World AIDS Day, volunteering and charity events for the College. It is also actively involved in organising trips and sporting and enrichment activities.
In short, our union is a vibrant and energetic place to be, and mirrors the College values of equality and diversity.
Each university level course has a course representative who represents the views of learners to the College’s management and attends team meetings and the Higher Education (HE) Student Forum.
HE Student Forum
This is a regular forum of all the University Level Course Representatives who come together to discuss HE at the College.
Studying with us means you will benefit from smaller class sizes than at most universities. This means you are more in touch with your tutors as you gain more one-to-one time with them.
Surveys and feedback
There area good relationships and excellent communication between learners and tutors. We also make use of a series of formal surveys and ways to give feedback which allows the learner voice to be heard – and importantly acted upon.
