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 a 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.

SRC Advice Centre
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 advisors 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, Employment Rights, Health Issues, Housing Issues, Income Tax/National Insurance and Student Financial Support. Staff may also be able to help you with issues such as 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 to 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 drop-in basis from mon 10.30 – 4, tues – thu 10 – 4 and fri 10 – 3.30 (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. All discussions with the advice workers are in complete confidence. Staff will do their best to offer assistance on any other difficulties you might experience. If they can’t help, then they’re sure to know someone who will be able to. You will also find a wide variety of leaflets and claim forms available in The Advice Centre waiting area that can help with many issues. 0141 339 8541 advice@src.gla.ac.uk www.glasgowstudent.net/advice

The SRC
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. Each and every student’s views are valuable in shaping the way that the University works and the student experience as a whole. No matter whether you are a mature student, an international student, part-time, or straight from school, the SRC works for 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 secondhand 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. Elections 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 represent you, or even to get 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 campaigning for the abolition of the Graduate Endowment publishing a Glasgow University Student manifesto for the Scottish elections, committing to Climate Change initiatives, and supporting fair fees for asylum seekers.

Student Representatives (class/course reps)
www.glasgowstudent.net/about/studentreps/ The SRC represents students at many 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. Every class should have a student representative whose job is to try to resolve issues raised, by discussing them with 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 student rep should be your first port of call. Any student can become a student rep who are elected in class during the first few weeks of each semester. www.glasgowstudent.net/about/stdentreps

SRC Campaigns
With campaigns on issues such as the abolition of the graduate endowment, prescription charges, flat hunting and bank charges taking past over the last few years, the SRC is the foremost campaigning body on campus.

SRC Events
Freshers’ Week, RAG Week, Media Week and International events are all among the various activities that the SRC puts on, giving you the opportunity to find out more about things you’re interested in, or just another opportunity to get involved and have fun.

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)
Student Volunteer Support Service provides students with volunteering opportunities on and off campus, providing valuable links with, and input into, the local community. Student volunteering covers a large range of activities and projects including student tutoring or supporting homeless people in Glasgow, to programmes tackling AIDS in Africa.

Clubs and Societies
Clubs and Societies provide an excellent way to meet new people and try new things, they look great on your CV and are lots of fun. Every year hundreds of students join a club or society for the first time, so you will not be alone. Check the website for a full list of clubs and societies, contact details and web sites. If nothing takes your fancy, then it’s really easy to set up your own. www.glasgowstudent.net/clubs

SRC Council
Council meets at least 6 times each year. This is where policy is passed, and issues affecting students are raised to be taken up with the University. Any student can attend and observe these meetings, and if you want to take part, elections are held at least twice a year.

JobShop
www.glasgowstudent.net/jobshop Jobshop provides information and access to a wide range of full time, part time, casual and seasonal work around Glasgow and further afield. As well as advertising for external employers they often advertise

vacancies at the University. If you’re looking for some extra money to get you through your student years, or just something to get you through the Summer, then it’s often worth giving JobShop a try. You can search for jobs on the website or visit the SRC Offices to look through the paper-based information system.

Flatshare
The SRC’s website provides a source of information for students looking for flatmates or looking for somewhere to live. It’s completely free: whether you’re looking for a flat or looking for people to fill yours,

2nd Hand Bookshop
The SRC bookshop provides a marketplace for students to buy and sell course books. It carries a wide range of textbooks and more general titles as well. It is especially useful for vocational courses such as law or medicine, which often have expensive books. You can search the database online before you come in, so make it your first port of call when looking for course texts.

GUSA is made up of a council of 16 annually elected students with a full-time President at its head. They cover all areas of activity at University from recreational and club sport to charities and outreach. GUSA is run by students for students. You should look out for many of GUSA’s legendary events. Their annual sports ball is the biggest in Scotland and a fantastic night. Their numerous charity nights and fundraising events are also hugely successful. GUSA competes in a Freshers’ intervarsity and the City of Glasgow Cup against Caledonian and Strathclyde in a variety of sports. And new to this year the Inter-faculty sports day. Sport brings people together and allows you to meet people that you would never have a chance to if you did not participate in some form of sporting activity.
