Course texts are expensive. To help with this, the SRC runs a second hand bookshop where you can pick up books for a fraction of the original cost. If you find yourself with a mountain of books to buy the src bookshop has broad range of course texts. You can check the database, order and sell books at www.glasgowstudent.net/services, then all you need to do is come and collect them. During term time you can visit the shop throughout the week, on the first floor of the John McIntyre building, on University Avenue.

The SRC
SRC Advice Centre
0141 339 8541

www.glasgowstudent.net
As a student at the University of Glasgow, you are automatically a member of its Students’ Representative Council (SRC). The SRC’s main responsibility is to represent the students of the University, and this means all students. �ach and every student’s views are valuable in shaping the way that the University works and the student experience as a whole. No matter what sort of student you are, whether you , are a mature student, an international student, part-time, or straight from school, the SRC works towards your interests. Of course, that’s only one of the many things the SRC does on campus to improve life for students — as well as campaigning on your behalf, they provide and support successful student media outlets, a free minibus service, a second-hand bookshop, an Advice Centre and more. The Council is the governing body of the SRC. It is the democratic forum for Glasgow University’s students, through which you are represented, and it gives Glasgow students a voice both locally and nationally. The Council is made up of 30 elected students, including 4 full-time, paid sabbaticals (President and Vice-Presidents). The other positions include: Officers, who deal with welfare and equal opportunities issues for their particular group of interest; Faculty Convenors who deal with academic matters in their faculty; and General Representatives. �lections are held in the autumn for General Rep positions, and spring for all other posts. This is an opportunity for you to get active and choose the people that will represent you, or even to get directly involved yourself. Any student can stand for election and make a difference to the work of the SRC and in turn, make life better for the students of The University of Glasgow. Some of Council’s recent achievements include publishing a Glasgow University Student manifesto for the Scottish elections, committing to Climate Change initiatives, and supporting fair fees for asylum seekers.

advice@src.gla.ac.uk www.glasgowstudent.net/advice
This is an advice, information and representation service provided by the SRC for all students and prospective students of Glasgow University. The Advice Centre is totally independent from the University; this ensures that the SRC provides a confidential and objective service. The Advice Centre is staffed by professional, experienced advisers and offers free and confidential advice and information on a wide range of subjects, including; Academic Problems, Bank Charges, Benefits and Tax Credits, Council Tax, Debt, �mployment Rights, Health Issues, Housing Issues, Income Tax/National Insurance and Student Financial Support. The Advice Centre staff may also be able to help you with: Academic Appeals, Formal Complaints, Disciplinary Issues and Plagiarism Hearings. Often these issues can be resolved more easily if you deal with them at an early stage. If you think there might be a problem, come into The Advice Centre and talk it over, and the advice worker can help you decide what your next step will be. The Advice Centre is located on the ground floor of the John McIntyre Building and is open on a dropin basis from Mon. 10.30–4, Tues.–Thu. 10–4 and Fri.10–3. (Opening hours during the holidays may vary). You can call in to the Advice Centre any time during opening hours. You don’t have to make an appointment.

Student Representatives (class/course reps)
www.glasgowstudent.net/about/coursereps/
The SRC represents students on many different levels throughout the University, and if you are considering getting involved, your first step could be to become a student representative for your course. Student Representatives allow students to air their views to the academics running their department on issues like course content, teaching and resources. They also operate as a part of the SRC, meaning that any recurring problems can be passed through from Student Reps to Faculty Reps and to the Vice President (Learning & Development) who can take further action on behalf of the students. �very class should have a student representative whose job is to try and resolve issues between the staff and students. They will normally sit on a staff/ student committee held once a month but can go to staff at any time to discuss issues raised with them by classmates. They’ll mainly deal with problems about timetabling of lectures or essay deadline clashes but will also be involved in disputes about teaching quality and other departmental problems. Student Reps are supported by the SRC, receiving training as well as advice and support on more complicated matters. If they identify major problems across a department or faculty then they can pressure Uni management to make changes. If you have any problems with your course or departmental staff then your class rep should be your first port of call. Any student can become a student rep. Student Reps are elected in class during the first few weeks of each semester.

SRC Campaigns
The SRC is the foremost campaigning body on campus. Campaigns on issues such as prescription charges, flat hunting and bank charges have all been covered by the SRC over the past few years.

Media
The SRC has four award winning student media groups — a newspaper (Guardian), a magazine (GUM), a TV station (GUST) and a radio station (Subcity). They provide a great way to pick up a whole host of new skills and experience. New contributors are always welcome and no experience is required.

Student Volunteer Support Service (SVSS)

SRC Council
Council meets a minimum of 6 times each year. This is where policy is passed, and issues affecting students are raised to be taken up with the University.
