Welcome to the Barking & Dagenham College Students' Union
The Students' Union acts is here to support and represent you during your time at College. 

Student Union Logo

The Barking & Dagenham College Students' Union is affiliated to the National Union of Students (NUS) and when you study with us you will automatically become a member, unless you choose to opt out. 

Representing and supporting you

Our Union team meets regularly with staff, Governors and external stakeholders to make sure that your views are represented. Our Student Union (SU) provides advice and support for any student who has a problem or needs representation. 

The SU can also let your views be known at College committee level, so you can personally contribute to the running of the College and raise important issues that may be affecting your time as part of our College community.

The Union is also involved in organising activities, events, clubs and societies to ensure that your time at College is fun too.

Enjoy a range of benefits with your NUS extra card

The NUS extra card entitles you to benefits including discounts at a wide range of shops and entertainment venues across London. You can apply for your NUS extra card here.

Could you be an SU officer?

Every year, you have the opportunity to become an SU officer, and it's a great way of enhancing your own CV, UCAS and job application forms.
