About ECSA

Edinburgh College Students’ Association (ECSA) is a charity representing over 20,000 students from more than 100 countries attending Edinburgh College. As a key partner of the Edinburgh College community, ECSA works to represent and support students across the 4 campuses to ensure every student has the best possible student experience.

Powered by students

The Association is made up of the thousands of students from Edinburgh College, across every campus, every course, and at every level within the institution. The constant cycle of new members is what powers us as an organisation and your engagement in the student experience is what keeps it going.

Driven by values

Our Values underpin everything we do and why we do it:

Committed to Students– we will never let anything distract us from the fact that students always come first for us. Independent from the College, we are led by students, for students, making sure they have a fun, successful and truly ‘ECSA-llent’ student experience.

Supportive– we strive to be welcoming to all students and always there when they need support. Our friendly staff and helpful nature is what makes us approachable and open to all.

Ambitious– Students come to College with one eye on building a better future and we are determined to help them do just that. Our approach to maximising opportunities requires us to be dynamic and innovative, constantly striving to do more for each and every student.

Trusted– we work hard every day to ensure that we are effective in pursuit of our objectives, running a professional organisation and gaining respect of key stakeholders across the College and beyond.

Respectful– Our membership is wonderfully diverse. We will always celebrate that diversity and challenge any form of inequality on campus, or beyond, because everyone deserves to be treated with respect

Committed to better

Our Association Vision is to create a positive, supportive community which enables every student to achieve their potential.
