Student Leader Programme

The Student Leader Programme is designed to help first-year undergraduate students settle into college life by providing guidance and advice through the support of a Student Leader.

Student Leaders are full-time undergraduate students in their second, third, or fourth year of study or full-time Masters students who have experience of life here at NCI. The Student Leader can act as as a resource, a helping hand, a sounding board or just a person to talk to whatever the issue might be.
