Students' Representative Council

 

What does the SRC do for you?

 

The SRC, short for Students' Representative Council, is your student voice. It is the legally-recognised body for student representation at the University of St Andrews since 1889.

The SRC currently has 27 members who are elected in Semester two each year. The functions of the SRC are devolved into seven different subcommittees which meet regularly:

The SRC meets at least five times a year  in order to discuss issues important to students. SRC members can put forward motions which are usually inspired by change that the members and students want to see happen at the University. The SRC has passed a number motions in its long history that have had a direct impact on the student body, including the motion to campaign against £9k tuition fees, the Kenly Wind Farm campaign, the creation of the student accommodation survey, the zero tolerance policy against harassment and discrimination, and much more.

The SRC has the power to lobby the University to make change in a number of different ways, including providing more money for student activities, taking a public stance on a particular political or ethical issue, or improving the teaching experience. All of these actions begin in the SRC.

Make sure to check out the Get Involved tab to find out more information about the Open Forum, Student Petition, and initiating change through the SRC.
