Student voice and activities
Your college, your way
Your opinions are important to us. We always include our students in decisions about the College. We’ll always welcome you to share your thoughts and ideas.
There are lots of ways to get involved, from completing surveys to volunteering as a course representative. You could even become a student ambassador or set up a new club or society (details below).
Ways to share your views
Become a Student Ambassador
The Student Ambassador Programme is a fantastic opportunity to:
- Gain experience in marketing, event management and promotion
- Undertake a vital role which looks great on a CV or UCAS application
- Promote City of Bristol College to future students
- Get paid for the hours you work!
We’re currently seeking reliable, committed students to apply to join the Student Ambassador Programme. You will receive training and coaching on the role of an ambassador and be invited to assist with a variety of events throughout the academic year.
To find out more, have a chat with one of the team or drop us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Policies and procedures
Make the most of your College experience
The Students’ Union (SU) aims to make sure you have the best college experience possible.
You can help make decisions, participate in projects and help improve the college experience.
What does the Students’ Union do?
- Sets up societies and sports teams
- Organises events, trips and fundraising activities
- Celebrates diversity and gives you a say
- Represents your interests
- Encourages you to get involved to make things happen
- Gives you discount. You can buy a TOTUM (by NUS extra) discount card through the Students’ Union
Clubs and activities
Across the academic year there will be events held by the SU for all students both online and in person.
All students are able to host approved events on behalf of the SU – you can do this by approaching the Activities and Events Officer or the SU staff.
Do you want to make friends or develop a new hobby? You can create and run your own group. This could be anything from board games and crafts to fundraising events or an LGBT rights group.
Examples of current groups include:
- debating society
- chess club
- College football team.
We highly encourage students to create and set up clubs through the SU. Setting up a club through the SU means access to college resources and to the SU’s budget. You can do this by contacting us via the SU website or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You could also get involved with our environmental campaigns that are run in partnership with Friends of the Earth. We also have a community apprenticeship programme run in partnership with Envision. Other programmes that might be of interest are Future Quest, Access to Bristol, Nuffield Education and On Track to Bath.
Make a difference
Have any ideas for projects you think would benefit the community? With support from the #iWill campaign, we have a dedicated fund to support Youth Social Action projects.
If you’d like to be part of a project that makes a difference, speak to your study coach, personal tutor or contact the Students’ Union.
