Students' Union

The Students' Union (SU) is an annually elected body, consisting of 7 officers. The SU is the College's bridge between faculty/administration and the student body.

The SU is invited to most meetings and ensures that student voices are heard on a variety of topics. The SU works closely with the Student Council, which consists of representatives from all classes at RCSI.

One of the primary duties of the SU is to represent students academically. We listen to any problems or concerns that individuals or groups may have and do our best to solve these. This includes exam worries, exam results, use of computers and curriculum changes.

In conjunction with the Student Services Office, the Sports and Societies Unions, the SU also help to organise a variety of social events at RCSI. These include: Fresher's Week (your first week of College), RAG/SHAG week, International Night and the SU College Ball.
