When you join Union, you become part of a growing and diverse learning community. With an emphasis on open and mutually supportive relationships, we are committed to investing in your personal and academic development, seeing you flourish and realise your unique potential.
Learning and personal growth are enhanced through informal interaction with faculty, staff and other students, as well as through formal classroom experiences. During your time at Union, you will have the opportunity to build positive and enriching relationships across the College. The break at 11 am each weekday morning in the Dining Room is an important aspect of College life, when students and staff can chat together over tea and coffee in an informal and relaxed setting.
As a learning and worshipping community, we gather for worship and prayer on a Tuesday and a Thursday morning. All students are welcome to participate.
We are committed to ensuring that every student feels a sense of belonging at Union. As part of your induction, you will be introduced to your personal tutor who will continue to help, advise and support you in your studies. Alongside the support offered through the wider community, your tutor will take a particular interest in your personal, academic and professional development.
The College, in partnership with the Presbyterian Chaplaincy, will also provide you with the opportunity to meet with the chaplaincy, an offer open to students of all denominations and none.
Student support and wellbeing services are also available through Inspire, who offer confidential services including online support, a telephone helpline (available 24/7) and off-site structured counselling service, as required, by BAC qualified practitioners.
The College has 26 en–suite bedrooms. These are available for undergraduate and postgraduate students in general but preference is given to Union Students. The College Residence seeks to maintain a specifically Christian ethos.Find out more
