Enrichment is an integral part of the student experience at Lewisham College. You will have the chance to meet other students, try new things, and develop your skills.

  • Visit new places on trips and visits
  • Volunteer with a range of local organisations and businesses
  • Gain additional qualifications
  • Participate in events, activities and societies.

Student Union 

If you are passionate about how Lewisham College is run and what to contribute to its direction then you should join the Student Union. You could:

  • Run college-wide events and campaigns
  • Put forward your ideas or comments to the governing body
  • Give your thoughts and views on what matters to you
  • Make a difference within Lewisham College
  • Develop your skills and experience, which could boost your CV

Student Voice 

If you would rather not commit to becoming a Student Union Officer but still want to make a difference within Lewisham College, then you could become a Course Representative.

Course Representatives are elected within each course by their peers. Their role is to help improve the course and the wider college. All Course Representatives and Student Union Officers meet regularly to discuss the comments, queries or questions you or your fellow students have. The Student Union will then raise them with the relevant Lewisham College committees or Senior Leadership Team. 


When you become a member of the Student Union you'll have access to the TOTUM card that gives you discounts at lots of great outlets:
