What is the function of the TSR?

The function of the TSRC include representing the Tygerberg students in the university management structures, facilitating initiatives or projects that benefit the students and always acting in the best interests of the students.

Is there membership/subscription fee to be a part of the TSR?

Although the council itself, which exists of 18 members, is elected; each and every TygerMatie student automatically has access to the TSRC, its services and events. The structure exists with the purpose to serve the students and as such no subscription or membership is needed, the TSRC 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 TSR?

Yes, you may run for a position on the TSRC 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 TSRC portfolios open applications for a committee to help them in running the portfolio and organizing events.
