The Student Representative Council (SRC) is the highest decision-making structure of student governance.
It represents all students at UCT, and their overall interest and social well-being, in university committees. It is highly involved in policy-making and co-operative decision-making on campus.
The SRC is elected annually by the students and consists of 15 members who either represent other student organisations or are independents. The SRC elections are governed by the Election Regulations.The duties, functions, privileges and term of office are set out in the SRC Constitution approved by Council as institutional rules.
The SRC is a very important stakeholder within UCT, as there is no decision that can be taken without the student voice. The notion of co-operative governance is embraced by the institution through these processes.
