Coleg Gwent Students' Union - CGSU

Life at college often revolves around the Students’ Union – and at Coleg Gwent, you’ve got a multiple award-winning one!

When you enrol at the college you automatically become a member of the National Union of Students (NUS) and can access the Students’ Union facilities and services. You can also get access to a whole range of discounts both on the high street and online, through the TOTUM NUS Extra card.

CGSU represents your views in the college and outside, campaigns on issues affecting students, offers support with any issues you may have and runs training events to help Students’ Union officers.

As part of the Students’ Union you can become involved in all sorts of ways, giving you the chance to:

  • Represent students at NUS conferences
  • Meet new people
  • Make positive changes in the college and nationally
  • Gain new skills and experiences
  • Enhance your CV
