2024 Student Representative Network

Interested in the quality of your education?

2024 SRN positions are currently OPEN!

Have you ever wondered who makes the decisions that dictate what you study in your course, who teaches you, how many students there are in your class and how long the exam period is? Have you ever had issues with any of these things and wondered if there’s a way to change them? Then the Student Representative Network (SRN) is the place for you.

The SRN is a group of students that care about their education and want a say in the decision-making process. Students sit as voting student representatives on a University Committee and have a say in all the decisions made. If you'd like to know more about the scope of each University Committee with UMSU represenation, please scroll down to the links below!

Students are supported by Student Governance Training provided by the UMSU Advocacy and Legal Department to understand and contribute to committees. The SRN holds regular meetings throughout the semester, during which Student Representatives report back on the issues discussed in their committee meetings and seek advice and input from other student representatives, to work towards positive change for all students.

The SRN provides a great opportunity for students to get more involved in their University experience, have a say and enact change.

Interested? Apply for a position on the 2024 SRN via the form below. Applications close Tuesday 14 November, 11:59pm.
