The Courtauld Institute of Art Students’ Union (SU) is a student-run organisation that represents the interests of its student membership and also co-ordinates much of the student life and culture which surrounds academic programming. The SU advocates in all things from academic matters to, for example, international students, student welfare and quality of learning experience.
The SU maintains an active presence both in person and online and hosts numerous initiatives, events, and activities. The committee is an elected team of volunteer representatives who work hard to build a robust and inclusive student culture, while providing a dedicated range of support services and resources.
New students are automatic members of the Students’ Union and are able to stand for organisational positions within the committee (a great way to contribute to Courtauld student culture).
In addition, through the Institute’s strategic relationship with King’s College London, Courtauld students are able to join KCL’s many societies.
In addition to its role as a representative body, The Courtauld’s Students’ Union organises much of the institution’s social scene, running a lively annual timetable of events and activities. It also co-ordinates a compact but varied programme of special interest societies, run by students and free to join. These societies are a great way for new or current students to meet new people, try something new, or develop an existing interest. Societies are active on social media and can easily be contacted for more information about how to participate. Examples include:
London is one of the world’s great university cities, offering a truly outstanding landscape of cultures and opportunities for new students to discover. The city’s rich architectural history — a mix of different periods dating back many centuries — combines with a bustling contemporary metropolis the houses some of the best arts and entertainment imaginable. Courtauld students are right in the heart of London, and benefit from ready access to some of the amazing museums and galleries, many close by, such as Tate Modern and Tate Britain, the National Portrait Gallery, the V&A Museum, the British Museum and, naturally, The Courtauld Gallery itself. There are also numerous superb smaller and specialist galleries to explore, as well as a lively contemporary visual art scene, featuring installation artwork and audio-visual exhibitions to intrigue and amaze.
London is also home to some of the best shopping districts in Europe (from high-end fashion to remarkable local food markets and vintage shops) and hosts an incredible palette of world cuisines. Students will never be short of things to do in London, and the city supports a multitude of diverse and multicultural scenes. There are many theatres and live music events, with many offering student discounts to help students make the most of their time in the city while staying within budget.
