Student Representative Council, Arc @ UNSW

The Student Representative Council (SRC) is fighting for your rights on campus. They run large-scale campaigns for student rights and provide support for those in need. They're democratically-elected to represent and campaign for your interests within the University, to Government, and the community at large.

  • Putting pressure on the university to improve the quality of your education
