The Student Representative Council Speaking up for every student.
#What is the SRC?
The SRC is a team of students elected each year by the student body to represent all UTS students and act as the peak governing body for the UTSSA.
The Student Representative Council runs several campaigns around student issues, both campus-specific and national.
#What do we do?
The SRC, through the UTSSA, also runs several campaigns around student issues, both campus-specific, such as the Know Your Union campaign - and national - such as those run by the National Union of Students (NUS) which target the quality of our education, safety on campus, unfair course costs and decreasing HECS.
#How do I get involved?
Elections for the SRC are held annually in October, giving all UTS students a say when it comes to who will represent them and their values. Students are able to nominate to run for a position, and all UTS students are eligible to vote.
Any UTS students are welcome to attend an SRC meeting and participate in our campaigns. Check out our website for more information.

Assistant General Secretary
I joined the UTSSA with the aim of making material improvements to the student experience at UTS.

I also hope to collaborate with different societies and clubs on campus to support welfare for all students in new and innovative ways.

International Students Officer
I strongly believe that, as international students, our voices need to be heard. Our position needs to be switched from passive acceptance to active participation in the local community. The international student community needs ‘a strong voice’ to ask questions on their behalf, assist them with their studies and daily living at UTS. I am confident that I am competent to be ‘the voice’ - a voice for each and every one of the fellow international students at SRC and make sure UTS is a place where our capacities are maximised.
