Welcome to NCL, we’re so glad you’ve decided to join us! For those returning, welcome back.
We’re here to support you and ensure you have a brilliant experience while studying at New College Lanarkshire.
The Students’ Association is the representative body for all students of NCL. We are the bridge between students and NCL.
We represent your issues through regular conversations, formal and informal, with senior management, working in partnership with the college to make the student experience as best as it possibly can be.
The Students’ Association also represents College students on the Board of Management, locally and nationally alongside the National Union of Students and SPARQS.
Importantly, we have a say on major issues, policies, procedures and other big decisions that impact our student experience at the College.
The Presidents lead the Students’ Association to ensure that the interests and views of the student body of New College Lanarkshire influence their work and how they represent you to the College and other bodies. Meet the team by clicking the link above.
Students are at the heart of everything we do.
This academic year 2022-2023, Hannah Carragher, Alexandra Romeo Imade and Kellyann McGraith will be the voice of every student at NCL and will be working to make the student experience the best that it can be.
We are dedicated to enhancing the student experience. We want you to feel that your voice is heard and is at the heart of every decision made at the college. We are responsible for providing opportunities such as campaigning, socialising, and being at the heart of student-led transformations.
Each will take on a different set of responsibilities and will be based at one of the College’s three main campuses.

Become the voice of your classmates.
At NCL, our Class Reps play an important part in the growth and development of NCL. Each academic year, an individual is nominated by their class to fill this roll.
You become the voice of your classmates, working with staff and students from across the college to resolve issues and communicate important college updates.
As a Class Rep, you will have the drive, discretion, communication skills and reliability to represent effectively. Building relationships and setting a positive example is key with your peer group by participating in college activities and encouraging others to develop their personal interests using college resources.
In addition, becoming a Class Rep offers you the opportunity to attend training courses and to experience a role with added responsibility, helping you to enhance a range of essential skills which would be a valuable addition to your CV.
