Student Representative Council

The Student Representative Council (SRC) is the highest student governance structure at the University of Pretoria. It manages student matters and represents students on University committees and forums where decisions are made. SRC representatives serve a one-year term of office. The SRC plays a key role in the coordination of organised student life and must ensure that the extracurricular programme contributes to the overall development of students. The SRC also fulfils an important communication function – on the one hand conveying student needs and interests to the University Management, and on the other hand reporting progress to the student body.
