What is the function of the SRC?

The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) is the highest representative structure for students at Stellenbosch University (SU) as recognized by the SU Statute and governed by the Stellenbosch Student Constitution. Its primary goal and function is to effectively represent the students of Stellenbosch university in order to ensure holistic student success.          

Is there membership/subscription fee to be a part of the SRC/AAC/Societies Council?

Although the council itself, which exists of 23 members, is elected; each and every Matie student automatically has access to the SRC, its services and events. The structure exists with the purpose to serve the students and as such no subscription or membership is needed, the SRC is there for you owing to the mere fact that you are a Stellenbosch University student.

When I am enrolled at the University as a first year, am I eligible to run for the SRC?

Yes, you may run for a position on the SRC as early as September of your first year as our leadership term stretches from September to September. If you wish to get involved before that we encourage you to keep a look out for committee applications as some SRC portfolios open applications for a committee to help them in running the portfolio and organizing events.
