Our student population is also a mix of first-time undergraduates and those returning to education from careers in professional sports, other healthcare professions, dance, and numerous other fields. This creates a diverse community where students can often learn from each others experiences.
The UCO Students' Union run the student bar and plan a range of social events and activities, both at the UCO and at the many bars, venues, parks and open spaces London has to offer. Clubs and societies change dependent on student demand and interests, and the there also a number of groups to support specific UCO commuities, including women, members of the LGBTQ+ community, interfaith, black and those with disabilites.
