  • Helping the campus make better decisions for students
  • Advocatingand representing the student body

Your feedback is important


To fulfil our role as student advocates, we need to hear from you.

Share with us your thoughts, comments and suggestions on how we can make your student experience even better.

Joining the SRC is a great way to get involved in your community, meet awesome people, build your leadership skills and contribute to helping the student body get heard.

  • A chance to develop your leadership skills
  • Actively working to make your campus a great place to be
  • Learning about teamwork and developing your organisational skills
  • Being able to access exclusive development workshops for SRC members
