What is the SRC?

The Students' Representative Council (SRC) is the highest representative structure for students at Stellenbosch University (SU) as recognised by the DHET ACT, SU Statute​ and governed by the Student Constitution​.​ The SRC fulfils its representative and organizational mandate through various portfolios allocated to a team of elected SRC members and appointed SRC managers.


​​How does the SRC represent you?


 The SRC's structural composition facilitates the representation of all students. With the Tygerberg Students' Representative Council (TSRC) Chairperson and the Military Academy Student Captain both serving as ex-officio members, students from the ​Tygerberg and Saldanha campuses are also represented at the highest level of SU management. 

Furthermore, three statutory bodies (Academic Affairs Council, Prim Committee and Societ​ies Council​) as well as and the Postgraduate Student Council,  made up of representatives from all  Faculties, Communities (Residences and Commuter Student Organizations- CSO's) and Societies ensure that the students who form a part of these structures are heard and well represented on the SRC.
