Join the Student Union

All Petroc students automatically become a member of the Petroc Student Union when they enrol. The best interests of all Petroc students are represented by the Petroc Student Union’s Executive Committee, which is made up of 12 officers. These officers are recruited through an election process during the Autumn and Spring terms, and sit on the Executive Committee for a one year term. You can find out more about our current officers by clicking here.

Being part of the Executive is an excellent experience and will certainly help to improve your CV. It is also a chance to get more involved with college life and make a difference for your fellow students. There are currently two vacancies on the Executive Committee, if you are interested in becoming the 17/18 Communications Officer or Mature (19+) Officer please email or enter your contact details and note the position of interest here.

Information on the election process is shared around campus on posters and newsletters around the college, so keep an out for these in September/October and February/March! For more information please address any queries to
