As students, we're all here to gain skills and pursue our career goals. The ability to bring our thoughts and ideas directly to management, and to exist in an inclusive community can help make our study experience great.
Your Student Representative Council (SRC) works together to make our community a better place. We achieve this by working within our three pillars: Community, Advocacy and Decision Making.
We do things like:
This term the SRC has taken on a new initiative as a way to reconnect the student community, the initiative is known as B.L.U.E, each letter represents a different theme the SRC has been implementing in past and future activities.
Belong, Learn, Unite and Empower. So far this term the SRC has hosted a movie night and a games night, both to remove the divide of on and off-campus students, as well as teaching students about new ways they can connect, regardless of where they are located.
The Mentoring Scholarship Students and Ambassadors are year 2 students who have displayed an exemplary performance in their practical learning and have completed their first industry placement.
