What Students Say...

The Union brought back Life Drawing to the Illustration department after it was cancelled. Life drawing was an integral part of our practice so it was greatly appreciated when it returned!

Ewan G, Maidstone

The Union is an extremely effective group that helps students solve problems arising from course or academic areas.

Lee E, Epsom

When concerns and worries about course and university issues were at a distressing tipping point, the Union helped me rationalise and encourage a student-led defence against the problems
