The Association is represented by three paid Sabbatical Officers who are elected in Spring each year. We have one full time Regional President and two part time Depute Presidents and these posts can only be held by those who were Nescol students at the time of election. They are responsible for taking student issues forward through the Association Executives, College Boards and Committees, and are accountable to the student body.
The North East Scotland Students’ Association is run by students, for the benefit of students, and we strive to make sure that your experiences at College is the best it can be; from the fun, social side of things to the more serious, educational side where we’ll represent you at all levels – from running Class Rep meetings to lobbying MPs. We also hold an important seat on the Board of Management, one of the main links between you and the College.
As an organisation we act as the voice of students’ in the wider educational environment. So, for those who want to have an active say in their education, are interested in student issues, student events or student politics the Students’ Association is a great thing to become involved in.
Events & Activities
During the College year, the Students’ Association run a range of events promoting Health and Welfare, Equality and Diversity and general social events – because you all deserve some fun! We publish an Events Calendar each year so that you know what is on offer. Your first introduction to these will be through our Freshers’ activities in September. Freshers is an event to welcome you to campus, where you will find stalls offering information on student support, health and wellbeing, catering on campus, volunteering and local entertainment/leisure facilities, among other things. We really hope that you can join us for this and possibly grab a few freebies or goodie bags!
In 20/21 we plan to run our Calendar of events but these may be virtual events which will still provide lots of useful information and advice as well as any student offers and discounts.
The Students’ Association are always on the lookout for promotions and benefits for students, and these will generally be promoted on our social media channels, student Intranet pages or at our events and activities.
