Derby College Students Union

Starting at Derby College is the ideal time to try something different – widen your social circle, discover fresh experiences and pursue new interests. We want you to take full advantage of all the opportunities ahead.

Your Students’ Union

Run by students for students, Derby College Students’ Union (DCSU) is here to represent YOU. Independent from the College and democratically controlled by students, we promote your diverse interests and needs throughout your time at College.

We champion the learner voice so YOUR input is crucial to ensure you have the best student experience. Do let us know your views on how to improve the College and your Union.

We provide a wide range of services to help you develop new life skills and support you through difficult times. We also run activities to make your time at College even more enjoyable
