Meet the ASU

Student Union members having a meeting

Who we are and what we do

The Students’ Union team are here to help you get the best out of your university college experience. As a team, we are responsible for representing and amplifying your voice, and the voices of all students at AECC University College.

We work hard to make your time at the University College one you’ll never forget. Our role is to serve you, the student. We aim to do this by improving all areas of your University College life, ranging from hosting social events to liaising with the faculty, to maintaining the University College gym and organising the sports teams and social clubs.

We are here to support you, so do not hesitate to contact us through email, social media or (when we are able to again) pop by our office on the top floor of the main building via the central staircase.

Mollie (a former SU President) gives an overview of the role of the ASU in this short video.

MSc Podiatry (pre-registration) Students at TCS London Marathon 2024

Each year, some 60 Podiatrists, both qualified and pre-registration students from all over the UK, descend on the capital to volunteer for the TCS London Marathon. This year, our first cohort of AECC University College MSc Podiatry (pre-registration) students, along with Associate Professor in Podiatry and Course Leader, Simon Otter, joined peers from the Universities of Brighton, Northampton, and East London. The co-location developed a true multidisciplinary ethos and close working relationships with physiotherapists, nurses, paramedics, physicians, and the voluntary sector (via St John Ambulance) as part of the wider finish-line medical team.
