North East Scotland College Students' Association (SA) is an organisation run by College students for the benefit of College students.
College students elect a President and Vice President who represent the student body on the College Board of Management and work with College managers to shape College policy and influence decisions at the highest level. The President leads an elected committee that organises a wide variety of events and sporting opportunities, which are open to all students.
As a student at the College whether you are full-time, part-time, attend one of the main campuses, study via e-learning or at one of our outreach centres, we are delighted that you have chosen to study with us!
We make every effort to ensure your experience at College is a positive one and to help us achieve this, we have a whole range of support services and facilities that you can access.
Who is eligible to join the Students’ Association?
All college students are automatically members of the Association unless they choose to opt out in writing to the President
How is the Students’ Association run?
Day to day business is conducted through committee representatives. There are opportunities for students to gain valuable skills as committee members or by helping to run the various clubs, societies and social events. If you don't want to be actively involved with the organisational side of the Association, you can still give your opinion as to what kind of clubs, societies and social events you would like to take part in.
