The Students’ Union plays a key role in Academy life
Whether you’d like to join a specific club, need advice from a friendly face or just want to make sure you don’t miss out on the best social events, we’re here for you.
Every enrolled student is automatically a member of the Students’ Union (SU). The academic year starts with Freshers’ Week, which kickstarts our wide range of social events. Other highlights include the Boat Party on the River Thames, our Christmas Party and Summer Ball.
We hold regular jazz jams, board games nights, film nights and pub quizzes, and we often work alongside charities including Movember and Therapy Dogs Nationwide. We have an ever-growing list of student-led clubs, including our LGBTQIA+, Feminist and African-Caribbean Societies, as well as football, basketball and tag rugby teams. Check out the full list of clubs and societies below.
From running to karaoke and cake sales to cocktail nights, there’s plenty to keep you busy wherever your interests lie. See our website, Facebook page and Instagram account for more details.
Your SU Team works together to create the best possible environment for students and ensure that their voices are represented at all levels of the Academy.
The forum for student views on any aspects of Academy life is the Student-Staff Liaison Committee. Discussions here include difficulties faced by the student body including matters to do with accommodation, student support, finance and everything in-between. This committee meets once per term and students can raise any concerns through their representatives or attend the meeting themselves.
President of the Students' Union
The SU President is the principal channel of communication between the SU and the Academy. The President attends all major boards and committees – including the Governing Body and the Academic and Programme Boards – to make sure any concerns are addressed at the highest level.
The Equality and Diversity Representative is responsible for ensuring there is fair representation within the RAMSU. They liaise with the Academy and SU Societies on matters pertaining to Equality, Diversity & Inclusion and Access & Participation in order to ensure the interests of particular student groups are recognised and developed.

They ensure that all matters relating to postgraduate programmes are brought to the attention of the Head of Postgraduate Programmes as well as attending the relevant committees and boards.
