A recent development is the creation of a Virtual Students’ Union led by Birmingham City Students’ Union and 9 local partner colleges.
Recently awarded NUS’s Innovative Student Engagement Award, the Virtual Students’ Union offers a new way of engaging college based and prospective students into university life whilst at the same time offering training support, information and resources to help a wide variety of on campus activity.
The initial focus has been on academic student representative training with a variety of case studies and resources but plans are underway for content to support the creation student-led activity (clubs and societies), enhancing the student voice activity, student support services and offering pre-arrival information for prospective students as well as offering a unique opportunity to collaborate with local educational institutes from your desktop.
